A Happy Easter to those inclined.

A wonderful Passover past to you of different mind.

A lovely Sunday to all of irreligious bent.

Enjoy the day! All good wishes from your Aardvark sent.


Some Rhode Island busybody had too much time on his hands:

April 7, 2007 — A Rhode Island public school has decided the Easter bunny is too Christian and renamed him Peter Rabbit, and a state legislator is so hopping mad he has introduced an "Easter Bunny Act" to save the bunny's good name.

The Dread Dormomoo heard the news and said:

"Oh! Naming him after the first Pope.That's good."

The Restoration movement has as a goal to restore faith and practice to their Biblical roots and limits. Thus, "Easter" is not celebrated per se: no purple draped crosses or pageants. The Resurrection we celebrate each Lord's Day (Sunday, the first day of the week) in meeting together to partake of the Lord's Supper, as the first century church under apostolic leadership did.

I don't have a prob with Easter, personally. I see Easter and Christmas to be useful holidays, both as reminders, and as opportunities to speak to a culture which becomes nominally more aware of its Christian roots at those times.
I wouldn't drag the Bunny into the sanctuary, but I am not above being utilitarian in my evangelism, using what's at hand.

Paul kinda did that. Not a bad model to work from.

Christ has died.

Christ has Risen.

Christ will come again.

Happy Easter!
