Happy Easter!

Easter seems to mean different things to different people.

In my family, Easter is the most important holiday of the liturgical year, as it is to the Catholic Church:

So we spend it in church, in prayer and reflection, celebrating the end of Lent and thinking about Jesus.

To others, Easter means the Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts, and lambs and chicks and springtime.

To some New Yorkers, Easter means the annual Easter parade down Fifth Avenue, when people dress in outlandish costumes and show off their hats.

Some people celebrate a Pagan Easter, spending the day engaged in sex and love and worshipping the goddess.

Happy Easter!



Happy Easter!! I love this post! It's nice to read about different traditions!

Pagan Easter sounds like fun. Unfortunately, we do the church and bunny variety.

Hmm, that last one sounds interesting. We celebrate spending time with family and of course doing the whole Easter egg and bunny thing.
