    Easter Eggs? No, Those are "Spring Spheres"

    The funniest thing about this? Eggs aren't spheres; they're ovoids.

    But I suspect it never happened...

    Oviods... Aren't they something to do with the female reproductive system? Oh, my bad I was thinking of peeps. Maybe some skaters can now be described as having an "ovoidy program".
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Me, too. If it turns out someone actually said this to the girl, I will actually force myself to eat a Peep in penance for doubting her. And I never eat Peeps. They are revolting.

    I must say, though, that I find it kind of hysterically funny that it's Christians who appear to be the most upset about this. Er......

    I'll tell you what's revolting. The amount of Peeps hate on this board, that's what.

    Are Peeps more or less revolting than root beer or chocolate soda?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Yes, another example of people not knowing (or being deliberately obtuse) about the true roots of the Easter holiday.

    http://www.wicca.com/celtic/akasha/ostara.htm

    As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.

    The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whence we get the word estrogen, whose two symbols were the egg and the rabbit.

    The Christian religion adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time.
    Christianity did the same with Yule -> Christmas, BTW.

    Easter Eggs are in the Bible, right? Didn't Jesus paint one at the Last Supper?

    I'm reporting that to retired racehorse/dressage horse Ted the Peep Ho, who posts on Chronicle Forums. (How he types with hooves...) Though I admit, while I like Peeps, my own ex-racehorse finds them a tad puzzling at best.

    And the Christians don't give a crap about some random goddess. Easter falls where it does BECAUSE IT TRACKS WITH PASSOVER. The Last Supper is a seder meal, for heaven's sake, that's why real communion wafers have to be unleavened--Jesus was using unleavened bread. The whole OMG CHRISTIANITY STOLE FROM "PAGANS" (at most, hyper-fancy eggs from psyanky, which date to sun-worship in early Slavic and pre-Slavic tribes) tends to gloss over that especially where Easter's concerned, we just stole from Judaism. What with Jesus begin a Jew and the Crucifixion and Ressurection occuring on one if not the most important Jewish holiday.

    “The truth is that we don’t know that it actually happened,” she said.
    Kind of fitting, considering that this relates to Easter eggs.

    heeee, I didn't read the link and hadn't realized this story came from Seattle.

    I don't think it happened either.
