Easter and other religious holidays

In recent years it seems that any and all religious holidays that are based on Christian faith have undergone an transformation in the popular press and the "Politically Correct" crowd. The latest of these being Easter. While the core religious celebrations remain intact the popular celebrations like Easter Baskets and even wishing someone a "Happy Easter" have suddenly become offensive in some quarters.
The Easter basket is now the Spring Basket, wishing someone a Happy Easter has now morphed into wishing them a "Happy Spring" and of course the old idea of an Easter Break has long been converted into the party hardy time known as "Spring Break".
Everyone is obsessed with respecting others religious beliefs, something I wholeheartedly agree with, all religious beliefs should be respected, this includes respecting the religious beliefs of those who consider Jesus of Nazareth to be the Son of God.
