I am not the most religious person, but I want there to be meaning in the holidays rather than just the gifts, candy and commercialism that holidays seem to have become.   I love how this books shares short chapters on how to make the most meaningful holiday you can.  My son is constantly asking questions about religion that I cannot answer.  He has a desire to be informed and I want to offer the the answers he seeks.  I do feel that when we read this book to together he will discover the meaning behind the wheat baskets, the forget knot, the red egg and other traditions that will help make Easter more meaningful.  I also think this book will really help my son with the answers to those questions.  4 stars
