While any link between the Christians’ Easter and the Anglo-Saxon goddess, Ēostre – now, often called Ostara by Neo-Pagans – may well only exists in St. Bede’s mind and writings, it’s still one of my favorite Christian-originated/Christian-appropriated holidays. How can I not love a holiday centered upon Spring and Fertility? 😆
Oh yeah! Easter in 2020 ain’t like ones in the past. It feels a lot more like getting up close and personal with a facehugger. Worse, I’m not sure that 6ft is enough distancing to avoid their initial leap.
I truly wish this was pure or close to pure sarcasm, but it isn’t. Christians in Democrat-controlled zones within our nation’s borders who try to attend Easter services – or even funerals some places – are at serious risk of being arrested by police enforcing various executive orders by those Democrat Governors. And, of course, if those police officers feel that those Christians resisted arrested, they can be killed by those same officers.
Yeah, tyranny and oppression is always only one exploitable crisis, manufactured or not, away. All it ever takes for would-be despots to violate our 1st Amendment rights is for them to stop fearing our use of our 2nd Amendment ones.
Just in time for Easter 2020, chocolatiers around the world are making Easter Bunny confections wearing protective face masks. 😆
I love it! Nothing says hope more than some good, old-fashion thumbing your nose at whatever’s scaring you.
Happy Easter Or Eostre
I really don’t care if you celebrate the Christians’ Easter or the Pagans’ Eostre; here’s hoping you have a joyous Spring holiday filled with beauty and fun times.
