Easter no more (according to Cadbury & National Trust)

Recommended Posts

Theresa May and the Archbishop of York have criticised Cadbury & the National trust for removing the word Easter from their annual nationwide egg hunt promotion.

Ordinarily a person would be flamed for highlighting such a story but in this instance the British Prime Minister and the Archbishop of York have waded in  :Old:

Theresa May has described the decision to drop the word Easter from the name of Cadbury and National Trust egg hunts as "absolutely ridiculous". 

Her comments come after the Archbishop of York said calling the event the Cadbury Egg Hunt was like "spitting on the grave" of the firm's Christian founder, John Cadbury. 

But Cadbury said Easter was referred to on much of its packaging and marketing.

The National Trust also denied it was downplaying the significance of Easter. 

It added that there are more than 13,000 references to Easter on its website and that it runs a programme of activities to mark the event. 

Meanwhile, a descendant of John Cadbury has pointed out that "as a Quaker, he didn't celebrate Easter".

Have they removed the word "chocolate" too? Their eggs still seem to have more religious significance than chocolate content.

Maybe they've dipped below the cocoa percentage where they're legally allowed to call it chocolate.
