OK, so where is the article about the true meaning of Easter? As a Catholic, it isn't lost on me that too many times in the press and pop culture today, Jewish Passover is seen as this uber-serious holiday (to wit, this article), and Easter is treated as if its all about candy Peeps and chocolate bunnies (see the other article in today's edition of this publication on Easter candy!)... well, it's anything but that. I'm not going to preach, but c'mon, let's give equal coverage here. Easter egg hunts are NOT the true meaning of Easter, and Passover isn't the only thing going on this weekend.

I completely agree with you, "G-Man". I have been concerned that Danville Express seems anti-Catholic, especially with the non-sense their paid blogger, Tom Cushing, has written about our church's religious practices being violated by President Obama's healthcare plan. Maybe it is time for Catholics to stop buying advertisments in this periodical, and stop spending money on any advertisers who do?

Let me be the first to assure you that the Danville Express, San Ramon Express and Embarcadero Media are not anti-Catholic or Christian. The opinions of Tom Cushing are not necessarily those of our staff or this paper.
Growing up Jewish in the San Ramon Valley, I didn't see a ton of information on Passover in our local papers. This article is just meant to inform readers about a holiday many are unaware of and provide a youthful, fun perspective on what has been a traditionally serious event.
I wish a very happy spring season to all Valley residents, regardless of religious denomination.
