Gary and Mary Lee of Bridge Books share their take on which Christian holiday is more important, Christmas or Easter. Perhaps this is a question most asked by people who only go to church on special occasions!
Some would say “Easter is the most important festival in Christianity, far more important than Christmas because it celebrates God’s victory over sin and death. When Jesus rose again it was God’s way of showing that he cannot be defeated”
Others would argue that “both are equally important, because both were an essential part of God’s plan. Without Christmas, there would be no Easter—and without Easter, Christmas wouldn’t matter. You cannot have a Good Friday if you did not have a Christmas. You cannot have an Easter if you did not have a Good Friday”.

Whatever your thoughts concerning Christmas or Easter, both are a time to personally encourage others to think about these important annual events. We who trust in Christ’s birth, death and resurrection will inherit eternity, many still don’t know this wonderful gift is available to them.
Help those around you in their search for meaning this Easter. Give an Easter book or a Real Easter egg with the Easter message, or pop an Easter card through your neighbours’ doors.
