Happy Orthodox Easter

Happy Orthodox Easter

Hey! Thanks to the Great Schism of 1054 AD between the Roman Catholic Church, obviously based out of Rome, and the Orthodox Church, based out of Constantinople, we’ve got two Easters this year.

So, we all get to celebrate Easter a second time!

Too Late For Easter

Too Late For Easter
Too Late For Easter – Poor Bunny

Poor bunny. OUCH! But then, this sort of mistaken timing is bound to happen, since Easter is based upon a lunar-solar hybrid calendar – the date of Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox – whereas our normal, everyday calendar has been solely solar-based in the West since 45 BC!

But, as an odd side note, this poor bunny could have been saved this year by simply stating that you’re celebrating Easter under the auspices of the Eastern or Oriental Orthodox calendars. Easter this year for them is on the 24th of April, not the 17th. 😛

Some Left In The Basket

I Had Some Seasonal Funnies Left In The Basket

I had a few Easter funnies left in the basket as it were, partially due to time constraints and partially because I see no need to gratuitously offend Christians during their holiday. So, here they are. Enjoy.

Easter Monday Stinks

Easter Sunday is great! After all, hunting for eggs and painting them are two of best and most pleasant things for most of us to do. But… the next day stinks. It is, after all, Egg Fart Monday. 😆

Easter Egg Hunting

Easter Egg Hunting In 2022

‘Tis once again Easter. So, gentlemen, I do hope your ready, willing, and able to go egg hunting – and egg painting 😉 – today. After all, almost every single trapping and custom enjoyed during this Spring holiday is based upon Pagan fertility rites – or, neo-Pagan conceits. Either way though, Spring is the time for new life, the time for seed to sown in fertile fields.

And, for you Christians – yes, you should be celebrating the Resurrection instead of following the forms of Eostre’s rites. Yet, o scions of Noah, your God did command you in Genesis 1:26, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

So, given when in the year you celebrate your Christ’s Resurrection, now’s a good time to “get right with God.” 😆
