Of course we would get candy, because Easter is simply the Roman spring Festival!
Xtians don’t know when Christ was actually crucified, so they conveniently choose the same week as the Roman celebrations of the Goddess Flora because Christ rose being dead like her flowers do.
(Never mind the that old testament commanded them not to take traditions from other cultures.)
reminds me of the eddie izzard skit about easter..on the dress to kill show
The pagans had big festivals
on Easter and Christmas.
Christians had big festivals
at Easter and Christmas.
Jesus died on one and was born
on the other. Hm-hm-hm-hmm?
Cos…Jesus I do think did exist.
He was a guy
who had interesting ideas
in the Gandhi area, the Nelson
Mandela area - relaxed and groovy.
The Romans thought,
“Relaxed and groovy? No
So they murdered him.
Kids eat chocolate eggs
because the color of the chocolate
and the color of
the wood on the cross…
Well, you tell me.
It’s got nothing to do with it,
People are going, “Remember kids,
Jesus died for your sins.”
“Yeah, I know, it’s great.”
“No, it’s bad.”
“It’s bad. lt’s terrible”
“Whatever you want.
Just keep giving me these eggs.”
And the bunny rabbits, where do
they come into the Crucifixion?
There were no rabbits going,
“You putting crosses in our warrens?
“We live below this hill, all right?”
Bunny rabbits are for shagging,
eggs are for fertility.
It’s the spring festival.
