John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Does it not demean the Name of Jesus, to associate His Name and His resurrection with such things as Easter bunnies, Easter eggs, Easter baskets, etc.? It surely does.

This was the beginning of the Samaritan people, whom we find through the rest of Scripture even down to the Acts of the Apostles, retaining some trace of their heathen origin.
Unto this day they do after the former manners,… the new colonies in Samaria doing after the former customs in their own land,
This syncretism, this mixed religion,
they do after the former manners – that is, they maintain the mixed religion,
