Please, keep this discussion about doing anything related to Good Friday, not just general plans!
Why should you be surprised?What do rabbits,eggs and candy have to do with Jesus resurrection?

Math 15:14 Then he also told them an illustration: ďA blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Both will fall into a pit,* will they not?

Eggs mean new life (which is what a resurrection is supposed to be). The Easter Bunny goes back to some German tradition. Candy is common for holidays and seasons. If you want to know more, go to an online encyclopedia.
After Jesus told the 11 apostles to keep rememberance of this occasion,he knew shortly he would be executed.I dont think he had bunnies,candy or eggs in mind.Manmade traditions sound about right.

In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus kneeled and poured out his heart in prayer. Soon, an armed mob of soldiers, priests, and others arrived to arrest him. Judas approached and singled Jesus out by giving him a kiss. As the soldiers bound Jesus, the apostles fled.

Only symbols Jesus used when he instituted The Lords evening meal were unleavened bread to symbolize his sinless body and wine to symbolize his blood.

While his resurrection strengthens the faith of Xtians to have power over death,his death was commanded by him to observe it because of who he was and how great he suffered.......both he and his father.

We delivered "Meals on Wheels" to the homebound at noon.  Worked in the garden in the afternoon.  Attended Good Friday service at our church.
