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. 😉

It’s Not All Demonic Sex

Despite the historical belief that witches summon demons and devils for lascivious reasons, it’s not, and never has been, all about demonic sex. 😉

And Happy Holi

As I wouldn’t want to be called “Eurocentric” or anything like that, I’d like to wish you all a slightly belated Happy Holi as well as Ēostre. Got to keep up with the multicultural ethic, after all.

And Happy Holi As Well

OK, OK! All sarcasm aside, I just plain forgot that yesterday was technically Holi. My wives and I actually celebrate this Hindu holiday but, like many such things in the States, when the holiday falls on a weekday the big celebrations and ceremonies are normally held on the nearest weekend. Hence, Sunday we’ll be having fun and getting colorful at this year’s Rangwali Holi.

And hey! Holi’s even more colorful than Ēostre.
