‘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.” 😆
