    Seattle school renames Easter eggs 'Spring Spheres'

    "At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that," Jessica said.

    She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs after of a meeting earlier in the week where she learned about "their abstract behavior rules."

    "I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay," Jessica explained. "She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat 'spring spheres.' I couldn't call them Easter eggs."

    Rather than question the decision, Jessica opted to "roll with it." But the third graders had other ideas.

    "When I took them out of the bag, the teacher said, 'Oh look, spring spheres' and all the kids were like 'Wow, Easter eggs.' So they knew," Jessica said.

    The Seattle elementary school isn't the only government organization using spring over Easter. The city's parks department has removed Easter from all of its advertised egg hunts.

    I know that Seattle was left of center but this is ridiculous. I can understand your not being a believer in Christ but Spring Spheres, give me a break. Why can't those of use who celebrate Easter just do our thing and you can keep your kids at home an explain that you have something else fun for them to do. Anyone who thinks this is a good idea is sick.

    I would think a school teacher would understand that eggs are not spheres. No wonder our test scores are so low.

    Is this a joke? A magic rabbit that lays coloured eggs is what modern civilisation is all about.

    I love this. I bet the same people who decided Spring Spheres are a good idea support the "What Would Jesus Cut" campaign to smear the Ryan Budget.

    If it's online it must be true.
