Re: Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all and a happy spring equinox as well.  

Both eggs and bunnies represent fertility. The notion of rebirth. Easter
used to be two days after Passover but the council of Nicea established
Easter as the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring
equinox. Eggs began as part of this holiday first and then in northern
Europe the idea of good kids having a bunny deliver colored eggs during
the night came later. The spring answer to Kris Kringle.

Subject: [CHAT] Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all my friends. Hopefully you will be able to spend time
with your family and friends and remember what the true meaning of this
Holy Holiday is.... of course, for those with different religious
beliefs as me, enjoy a chocolate easter bunny instead :)

ps: and the thought of the moment... why is it the Easter BUNNY leaves
Easter EGGS?...... bunnies don't lay eggs, that's the chickens job!
