AMEN! This morning and every morning.
I had never heard of this celebration of Easter Monday. Maybe I'm just too much of a stick in the mud, but I have a bit of a problem with any frivolity associated with the celebration of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. To me it's more of a time for somber, sober, reflection. Of course we rejoice that He is risen, but I just don't associate silliness or "pranking" with the joy I feel. But that's just my opinion. Been wrong before and I'm sure I'll be wrong again.
