    Happy Easter to all who follow Christianity.

    I hate Easter because it's just another Sunday without football and baseball. I finally got rid of the last snow pile which means I have to start the yardwork today.

    Happy Easter,
    I just Hard Boiled some egs, I let them cool, then I peeled them, then I locked my dog in the bedroom and pulled down the shades so he couldn't see what I was doing, I took the peeled eggs out in the yard and hid them, then I got my lawn chair out and yelled in to my wife to "let the dog out" I sat and watched him hunt for Easter Eggs.

    My wife very seldom speaks to me.

    Typical Christian, wishing happy Easter only to those that follow Christianity. I guess the rest of us are blasphemers so don't deserve happiness, huh? ;)

    And for you pagans.....



    http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?search=easter&searchmode=none

    O.E. Eastre (Northumbrian Eostre), from P.Gmc. *Austron, a goddess of fertility and sunrise whose feast was celebrated at the spring equinox, from *austra-, from PIE *aus- "to shine" (especially of the dawn). Bede says Anglo-Saxon Christians adopted her name and many of the celebratory practices for their Mass of Christ's resurrection. Ultimately related to east. Almost all neighboring languages use a variant of L. Pasche to name this holiday. Easter Island so called because it was discovered by Europeans on Easter Sunday, 1722.

    So in reality, Easter is a pagan holiday.

    Christians SHOULD call it Passover, or something like that.

    Easter IS a pagan holiday.

    There you go.

    Roll your eggs of fertility.
