Actaully, I would say that marketing has influence over Christianity, but that's just me.

Ya, I always wondered what bunnies and baskets full of candy have to do with the supposed death and re-birth of a popular figure to atone for the sins of the world. Ya know. There's definitely an intrinsic link between the two. Yep.

Some holidays are useless in my opinion. When you think about, people don't make as big of a deal out of some holidays as they do others. American Halloween is bull, but in Mexico it's like Cristmas(El Dia de Muerto to be exact). Another example includes How Christians make a bigger deal out of Christmas than Easter while Jewish people make a bigger deal out of Passover than Hanukah(sp?).

maybe bunnies and baskets try to take your mind away from death.

The easter bunny and eggs are signs of fertility, and Easter is in spring. It's all about regeneration and stuff, so they thought that would be a nice time to associate with Christ being resurrected.
I may not be 100% correct.

may it vex me that christianity has influence over marketing in america, that really anoys me because state and church of SUPPOSED TO BE SEPERATE!!! There i said it Happy Now?? Geesh.

The Constitution doesn't talk about separation of church and state, but it is mentioned in a letter from Jefferson, I think (better find out more!).  Does anyone know why the US follows that?  I agree with it in some parts but other times I wonder if that idea goes too far.

Also, don't all religions have influence over marketing?

I beleive we follow the 'separation of church and state' thing because we don't want head into another Dark Age. You do know what I am talking about, right?
