This was an interesting article, but I had one major problem with it. From the article: "Although Easter is still considered a reverent and
beloved holiday for Christians in America, Easter Sunday falls on a different
day each year, perhaps causing the death and resurrection of the Savior to be
less celebrated than it should be.In the Holy Land of Jerusalem,
however, Holy Week includes several celebrations such as Palm Sunday, Maundy
Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday."Really? The writer
thinks these specific days are mainly ignored in America? I grew up in the
Lutheran Church and was baptized into the LDS Church at eighteen. As a
Lutheran, we recognized and celebrated each of these days. It was something
that I really missed when I left my old Church behind, not that I in any way
regret doing so. I simply want to say that lack of observance or notice of
these days is not an American thing; it's more of a Mormon thing. Over the
years, I've talked to many other coverts who came similar religious
backgrounds and found we all missed them. Somehow, Easter seemed lessened.
Apparently, the Brethren agree.
