    no, forgot all about it. this country doesn't celebrate easter.

    it just started to recognize christmas a few years ago but it is a minor, very minor holiday here. the corporations are trying to play it up though.

    Where are you Archae?

    THe coorporations want you to spend all your dosh on crap gifts for your family and friends..

    I see people are now begining to buy gifts for others at easter, and almost seem to celebrate killing one poor jewish chap and nailing him to a cross...

    Just don't tell the coorporations about the holocaust...

    That was about real people some of whom are real memories to people still alive today....

    It's good because only two more days til Sunday, when I can scoff lots of chocolate eggs! Yum Yum

    I'm going to an Easter egg hunt Sunday, it's for the kids, but I'm gonna get their early and get all the eggs before they do, lol

    And I shall be wearing my bunny ears

    Personally, I celebrate the Equinox's & Solstices, because I'm a nature & life worshiper

    Does anyone have a long pole I could borrow for 1st May? I need it to swing on

    That's a point, I can't have Easter eggs because I don't believe in God anymore. What the funk have eggs got to do with Easter anyway?

    The rolling of the stone that covered the tomb.

    Or was that a rhetorical question?

    Rubbish!

    God doesn't have the license for Easter eggs

    Eat eat eat until you feel

    P.s Best time to buy 'em is after easter, half price, more chocolate

    I think it's a great pity that Jesus never sampled chocolate. I wonder what he would make of the world today...

    Not me!
    This day is outlawed by our Constitution as 'cruel and unusual punishment'.
    Christ was executed because of criticizing the Chauvinist jews.
    So, because of this, our C'N also grants us 'free speech'.

    So IMO, our C'N indirectly endorses Christ as a Preacher/Reformer rather than as a sacrificial lamb.

    feel free to eat them, easter eggs have nothing to do with easter or what it represents. it is a distraction to take your eyes of Christ and His sacrifice for you.

    there are no easter eggs here either and now you are making me hungry for some.

    Yeah sadly though never quite as good as the original series, I thought the story was weak and the gags missing, (nice not to hear all that false canned laughter though).
