Easter 2017…

leave a comment »

MSM was desperate  to declare  the White House Easter Egg Roll a failure because it’s Trump.   It seems to have gone  just fine,  if you’re interested, but you undoubtedly headr more abut the egg roll than anything to do with the reason for Easter.   Some of us let go of the Easter bunny tradition with  age,  some with great reluctance,  and some with utter confusion.

Some of us reflected on the  historical significance  of Christianity.   Most of us  celebrated the  day around the world,  many by  attending church services,  as we find ourselves the  most persecuted  religious group on the planet,  a position long held by the Jews.   A few of us managed  even in  the Middle East,  but you have to ask yourself if Christianity will survive in  its birthplace.   Explaining Easter to those without any understanding of Christianity or Western culture can  be tricky,  but rewarding.

By the way, the Shroud of Turin  was authenticated  for the second time last year,  using far stricter scientific methods than have ever been applied to climate change or cholesterol studies.

If you’re not still comatose from too much delicious dinner try finding the egg hidden amongst the floral bouquets  here.
