Can you imagine most of Americans not knowing what the true meaning of Easter is? Apparently, this is sad a reality.
According to a recent study done nationwide by the Barna Group asking Americans what their definition of the Easter holiday is found that although most Americans identified Easter as a holiday, little knew what the true meaning of Easter actually is. How many exactly? While 67% of Americans relate Easter as a religious holiday, only a staggering 42% of Americans said that the true meaning of Easter was the resurrection of Jesus or that it signifies Christ death and return to life. These numbers mean that over have of Americans have no idea what Easter means. Yikes!!
