Look at the size of those feet! Size 13 arse-kicking feet, that`s what they are.
I hate to be the one who breaks it to you, but those little balls of "chocolate" rabbits make aren`t really chocolate.
Yay for me, I brought the tone of the thread down into the sewer :)
don`t make this a bible bashing thread, make it a, "wait, where do half the Easter traditions come from?" thread
but yeah. pretty great
easter is a celebration of fertility and birth, so the christians conveniently placed jesus` rebirth[zombification] on the pagan holiday. "
Without even really changing the name - the god was known as Oestre in some places, right? Same pronunciation.
I think it`s a bit odd how many people don`t notice that the entire Easter thing doesn`t match up with Christianity. Eggs and rabbits don`t fit Christianity at all, but they fit very well with a spring festival that`s very fertility-orientated (what are rabbits best known for?) and involves the worship of a female god (egg = female fertility).
Usurping existing religion events was a deliberate Christian policy to make conversion easier and to undermine the older religion. They did the same with Christmas - their own holy texts make it clear Jesus was not born in winter.

And we eat chocolate on Easter because the colour of the chocolate, and the colour of the wood on the cross... well, you tell me!
Blasphemy, it`s hilarious! :D
