DjangoStonereaver: Easter.That's the holiday where Jesus comes out of his tomb after 3 days and if he sees his shadow its 6 moreweeks of winter, right?
Krymson Tyde: I love how Christians celebrate their two holiest days.
fruitloop: I had no idea that Jesuses laid eggs.
Sybarite: Still too pagan.[sarcasticxtian.com image 550x411]There we go.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Sybarite: Still too pagan.[sarcasticxtian.com image 550x411]There we go.Does the chocolate cross repel vampires? Or maybe is it only effective on Blackulas?

beerrun: Wyckyd Sceptre: [www.landoverbaptist.org image 280x331]Thanks for the good laugh.That's hilarious!/glad I'm alone at work, my boss is a Jesus freak.
hdhale: Jesus looks awfully cheerful for a guy who just spent several days getting arrested, nearly beaten to death, crucified, stabbed just to make sure he was dead, and then laid out on a stone slab over the weekend, eh?Adopting Roman traditions into Christian celebrations made it much easier to convert people, thus the spring fertility (symbolized by eggs) and winter solstice festivals became Easter and Christmas. That's right, they've *always* been all about marketing, sorry folks.
Slaxl: I don't know wtf eggs have to do with Easter,
Slaxl: I may be an atheist but i'm all for people having religious holidays as they like. It seems silly to me that we should insist the religious aspects of Christmas be stripped away. It's their holiday. I don't know wtf eggs have to do with Easter, but it's clear their plan isn't about reconnecting children with Jesus' eggs, it's about reminding people that Easter isn't about eggs, it's about Jesus death and resurrection If they want to fight back against rampant commercialisation stripping their holy times of all meaning then I support that.Right up until the day religion is abolished I'll be completely in support of equality amongst religions. Then every day I can have a chocolate egg, no longer will it be bound by the oppressive chains of a religious holiday, but free to roam the shelves in traditionally un-eggy months like May, August, even September! This is a good thing.Now I have to go and buy some chocolate eggs, because I love them more than muslims love Mohammed.
maddogdelta: Slaxl: I don't know wtf eggs have to do with Easter,Silly, Jesus hides eggs, and you have to say "trick or treat" to get them, or else you'll get coal in your stocking.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: There needs to be an Easter version of Krampus.
