    Both for me. They are very intertwined. What it is not is a time for consumerism.

    while the egg is a pagan symbol (as well as the christmas tree), it’s all about religion because the reason the pagan traditions are woven into the holidays of a christian (yay immortal technique!) are to spread the religion. sooooo, yea, it’s more religious….
