When is easter

The Economist looks at the problem and offers a solution. 

As an atheist, I suggest easter should be the whole week. Who doesn’t want time off?

And I here somewhere in the UK, May and the bishop are not impressed with an add. What does rabbits have to do with Jesus and eggs?

  1. i agree, Mak. I say we crucify 6 more gods and take off an entire week.

    The first full moon after the spring equinox. Why do we have to include all the religious nonsense? It’s about rebirth. Not fictitious resurrections. There’s religion trying to steal again… as it tries to do with everything of human value… and claim authority over it.

      Now, why do you insist on being reasonable all the time 🙂

        I blame my mother for this character flaw; on the one hand, her genetics were fine but on the other her child rearing with lies and deceit left something to be desired.

          @tildeb: I suppose you forgot to place a ‘smile’ emoticon after your mother’s first “flaw” ?
          As for your serious reproach however, I am sure it was not her intention to deceit you, because she probably truly believed the stuff. This is what happened with my parents. I did not live with them when I started to be curious, so I found it easy to remain reasonable “all the time”!

    I like the solution. Having Easter celebrated on April Fools Day seems highly appropriate.

      “Hey, everybody! I’m the son of god and I will die for your sins”

      *giggles as he pulls off Christian Bale’s stunt in ‘The Prestige’ and his twin brother is crucified. Shows up after three days of hiding*

      “April Fools! I didn’t die!”

      “I don’t know what April Fools is, but you must have come back to life! You truly are the messiah!”

      “Wait, what? You guys are nuts, I’m outta here”

      “Where did the messiah go? He must have ascended to heaven!”

      It’s a great idea.


  4. I say forget Hey-sus and the Resurrection. Let’s make Easter an international holiday for rabbits! Why? Because who doesn’t like bunnies? They are cute, peaceful, loving, and their poop can be easily cleaned-up with a broom. Also, they taste pretty good too. But, my favorite is the Playboy Bunny… come on now ladies, you have to admit they are very pretty! So, who’s with me?

    As someone who was baptized as an infant, I was born into a Greek Orthodox family, with all the fine traditions of both that culture and that faith community. Now that I am married and have my own household (my husband and myself), I am free to choose what customs I follow. My husband is a Roman Catholic. We observe both Easters as it has always been our favorite holiday of the year, primarily because it coincides with the arrival of Springtime. Neither one of us are active practitioners in our baptized faiths. For us, Easter symbolizes “renewal” as nature renews itself after the barren winter season. Easter also means the time of the year for all the quaint but delicious assorted candies and sweets that we both love to eat! Naked hugs!
