The worshipping of chocolate rabbits – happy Easter!

leave a comment »

Not 100% sure where the chocolate easter bunny and the eggs came from – suspect it may have been from the original Pagan fertility celebration in (northern hemisphere) Spring.   Nonetheless, as I was getting groceries yesterday, the amount of shopping trollies that were literally overflowing with chocolate Easter treats was quite amazing.   I am quite glad that I don’t have a sweet tooth – one piece of dark chocolate will do me quite well, thank you!

 

But for the rest of you choco-holics out there – enjoy this holiday weekend, which seems designed just for you!

There might even be a few Christians for whom Easter egg hunts and chocolate overloading isn’t front and centre.  These same folk may even see it as THE most important Christian event on their calendar.   The death and resurrection of their saviour Jesus Christ.  Good on you.

If you are celebrating Easter this weekend in whatever form, enjoy it!   Of course, here in Australia, rabbits are pretty widely regarded as a feral pest, so we would prefer the Bilby to be the representative fertility symbol.   But oh well.   Enjoy the rabbits.   easter-bilby-and-rabbit
