Happy Easter

Have A Happy Easter

Happy Easter! And please do remember that in its original, Pagan form Ēostre, it was and is a Spring fertility celebration. Hence, one could say that hunting for Easter eggs has a more enjoyable and adult meaning than normally used. 😉

Easter Bunnies!

The Easter Bunnies have come, not just to town, but to Reflections From A Murky Pond as well.

Easter Bunnies!

ROFLMAO And what should one do when encountering an Easter Bunny? Why, hunt for the eggs of course. Easter is, after all, a time to celebrate burgeoning fertility.

Oh, and for any Christians who might be offended by this article, feeling it to be both too irreverent and sacrilegious, I must respond that every single one of the trappings of Easter celebrations, even the holiday’s name, was stolen from European paganism, in this case the Vernal Equinox celebration of Ostara or Eostre.

Christians should, in my rarely humble opinion, eschew the Easter Bunny in favor of the Paschal Lamb.

Now, time to find an Easter Bunny and paint some eggs. 😉
