Let’s not beat around the bush (but beat those eggs), Easter is almost here and people are getting eggcited.
I don’t want to stir up a hornet’s nest out on a limb, or skate on thin ice (still kinda cold here). At times around certain people I feel like I’m walking on eggs.
As the years pass I occasionally pick up some knowledge and a trace of wisdom. One thing (why I think diversity is good) I’ve noticed is how different religions and cultures have many common things and yet some odd customs and beliefs. Given the combination of sweets and eggs that have produced chocolate eggs, why don’t we find the chocolate Jesus more popular? Also, (maybe I should write a Cardinal) I think communion at church would be more popular if the communion host was chocolate covered.
I just learn this year that bread is destroyed before the Jewish Passover (purge chametz). Symbolizing the many aspects of life with common daily objects and food can get a little confusing as the many different cultures come together in today’s world.
As I was researching around the web about Easter, bunnys, and eggs. I learned that hares and rabbits are different. Similar but different. I should stop splitting hairs.
A recent comment by Mrs. 4444 started me thinking (dangerous at times) about the message in “Jesus Christ Superstar” musical/movie. Here’s a youtube clip and part of the lyrics:
You'd have managed better
If you'd had it planned
Now why'd you choose such a backward time
And such a strange land?
If you'd come today
You could have reached the whole nation
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication
The Chicago Tribune has finished they annual peep diorama contest. I like this “peepmares” one the best.
Do you think someday in the future, peeps will replace colored eggs at Easter?
Have a Happy Easter, Passover, Good Friday, Spring Fertility, and/or fill-in-the blank Festival.
