Delmar Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt - 2011

The Delmar Kiwanis Club Easter Egg Hunt was held under cloudy skies. Due to wind and the potential for immediate rain only about 30 kids showed up for the event - which means more candy for each one. Greed is good and I think the average take of candy filled Easter eggs was about 75 per child.

plenty of eggs for everyone

and the winners are the group below

Just what they need, a chocolate rabbit to go with the all the candy filled eggs they collected.

In the past few days there has been a discussion on the blogs about a teenager volunteering at a Seattle elementary school who apparently was told to use the politically correct name “spring spheres” when she tried giving kids plastic Easter eggs filled with candy. Spring spheres has no religious implications. As to be expected everyone was excited about it but the Seattle school board has not been able to confirm whether the incident actually happened.

Seattle Public Schools has received so many inquiries about the incident, it released a statement on its website to clarify its religious policy:

“We have a ‘Religion and Religious Accommodation’ policy, approved by the School Board in 1983, stating that ‘no religious belief or non-belief should be promoted by the School District or its employees, and none should be disparaged,’”..

So I don't know if it was true or not but tell me, when does it stop? Is Easter to be referred to as a "spring fertility festival"? The “Christmas Tree” has become a “Holiday Tree”, “Merry Christmas”, has become “Happy Holidays. We bend over backwards to make sure that certain religions can pray in schools, in the hopes that they won’t blow us up. But, if religions that preach peace and love want to display symbols of their beliefs, like a menorah or a manger, the liberal loonies go off the banana boat in an effort to get them removed. The Eastern side of Sussex county and the multiple lawsuits of Muslims in the schools is proof enough of that. They try to control the people by removing the pillars of moral values that a country has been built on. They then replace those rock solid values with the false promises that only government can give. Instead of the wisdom of the ages, the children learn of the false prophecies of those like Obama, Reid, Pelosi and Markell. It has to stop and it has to stop now.

But in a state that now accept gay same-sex-unions (someway this is different from marriage) maybe I should be a little more politically correct so have a "happy spring fertility festival" and enjoy your "spring spheres" hunt.

Sorry Kiwanis about wrapping this polically correct discussion in on your Easter egg Hunt but the topic seem to fit in with the activity.

Why do they continue to call these event easter egg HUNTS?
There's no hunting to it. They might as well call it the easter egg race.
