Have you thought about how odd American traditions must seem to foreigners? I recall an Indian student at Texas A&M inquiring of me about Christmas. "You cut down trees and put them inside your houses... then you hang things on them and store presents underneath?"
I can imagine his confusion regarding Easter as well. We have invented plastic eggs so that we can stick candy inside them then hide them in random places for children to find. Why eggs? And whats up with the rabbit? I like our traditions, but when you look at it from the outside, it does appear quite silly.
