                                  Answer:
   
   The answer to this is similar to Question 21.9.2. Some parents would
   permit it, and some would not. As always, one must weighed any
   benefits against the potential for identity conflict and confusion in
   the child, who may begin to feel as though she is "sort-of" Christian,
   or Christian in some "honorary" kind of way. Additionally, Easter Egg
   rolls are public events, and one must be cautious about giving the
   image that Jews observe such events (this is especially true if one
   has obviously Jewish dress: kippahs, peyot, etc.). In general, it is
   probably not a good idea.
