Report by Paula Antolini, April 6, 2022, 1:19PM EDT
Bethel Municipal Center is having an “Egg Hunt” on Thursday, April 7, 2022, from 3:30-6:00pm, except it has nothing to do with Easter.
View the Bethel Parks and Recreation poster below and you will NOT see the word “Easter”anywhere, despite rabbit images and a young girl wearing bunny ears.
This year, for the first time ever, the Bethel Parks & Recreation Department decided to “keep it neutral,” said Eileen Earle, Director of Bethel Parks and Recreation. She said the “decision” was hers, done through her department.
Other years Parks & Rec. held the “Easter Egg Hunt” event on the front lawn of the municipal center, or at Meckauer Park, she said, but this year the town will hold it indoors at the municipal center, where families will go from department to department for the “egg hunt and egg giveaway.” They did not want to do “large crowd activities” Earle said.
We asked, why the change? Earle said, “We’re just trying to stay neutral, so we’re not trying to offend anyone religiously.” She said they are “just trying to do a nice egg hunt for the kids.“
BETHEL’S ADVERTISING POSTER 2022:
What is happening in Bethel? Who is deciding to constantly change everything to “neutral”?
In the recent past, there has been controversy over other issues pertaining to religion too, such as when the Bethel town officials separated Santa from the “Holiday” (Christmas) Tree and Nativity display in P.T. Barnum Square, during the beloved holiday event held there for years. They moved Santa to a tent in front of the municipal center, or indoors if it was too cold out, where children would tell Santa their wishes. That location is away from the festivities such as a Bethel High School choir singing holiday music and the large celebratory crowd. Although Santa is not a religious figure he certainly is a large part of the event that the families looked forward to. Santa would arrive at the square in a fire department truck, but now he just circles the square, waves, and disappears to the municipal building. The Board of Selectmen (BOS) had discussed “moving the tree” a few years ago but decided they “did not have enough time” to arrange that. We assume they meant installing an artificial tree in or near the gazebo at the Municipal Center. So far we’ve heard no additional discussion on that from the BOS.
Then eventually the Bethel Board of Selectmen (BOE) allowed large controversial signs to be placed in P.T. Barnum Square in front of the Nativity, some by people who have stated they cannot bear to look at the Nativity and did not want it there. These individuals also tried to have the Nativity removed, or as was suggested by a member of the Bethel “Religious Holliday Display Committee,” that there should be a raffle as to which displays should be allowed, chancing that the Nativity might not be chosen certain years, and they saw no harm in that. Now you can’t mention Easter for the Bethel “Egg Hunt” because it might offend someone. The residents had no say in this.
Are you in agreement with all of this? Do you think this is confusing to the children?
There would be no Christmas if there was no Easter.
Bethel has now scrambled the “Egg Hunt” and muddled the meaning of the holiday by removing “Easter.”
Is this an “eggcellent” (as the Bethel ad reads) way to promote love and kindness?
Easter is a time of renewal and rebirth, something we all could use a lot more of now.
We researched to see how many other towns in Fairfield County also removed the word “Easter.”
The towns that REMOVED (or did not use) the word “Easter” are shown below. (This does not include towns who did not use “Easter” in the name of the event, but used it in the description, and does not include all CT towns).
