I heard about this on the radio and wanted to explode!!! First, they take away
Merry Christmas and transform it into Happy Holidays--now THIS!!!
'Easter' Bunny Gives Way To 'Spring' Bunny - Some Local Malls Go P.C. ForWhile it is definitely maddening that any public reference to Christianity is deemend unacceptable and offensive (in a way that really no other religion is), I was a little amused by "Let's just say what he really is." The Easter bunny? Just who is he, really? :-)
Customers at local area malls are being taken by surprised to find that the
Easter Bunny they've come to know and love now has a new name. In fact, some
local malls now refer to the Easter icon as the "Spring Bunny." However, some
customers don't like the new trend.
"It makes me sad, because I think Easter is really important. The message is
important," Plano mother Deidra Klemm said. "And I think it's wrong to call him
the Spring Bunny. Let's just say what he really is."
Klemm is not alone. Another unidentified mother said, "The Easter Bunny is the
Easter Bunny. There's no getting around it."
Some popular malls that have adopted the new trend include The Shops at Willow
Bend in Plano and the Stonebriar Centre in Frisco.
