@farmerman,
Does the Bible mention any holidays?

That's true, Christmas isn't in the Bible yet so many celebrate it and don't know or even care of its origins but those that do care ought to know.



I think we all know what Christmas and Easter are, so no need to worry about it.

Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
It's good enough for me.

We will pray with Aphrodite,
We will pray with Aphrodite,
She wears that see-through nightie,
And it's good enough for me.

We will pray with Zarathustra,
We'll pray just like we use ta,
I'm a Zarathustra booster,
And it's good enough for me.

We will pray with those Egyptians,
Build pyramids to put our crypts in,
Cover subways with inscriptions,
And it's good enough for me.

We will pray with those old druids,
They drink fermented fluids,
Waltzing naked though the woo-ids,
And it's good enough for me.

We do dances to bring water,
Prepare animals for slaughter,
Sacrifice our sons and daughters,
And it's good enough for me.

I'll arise at early morning,
When my Lord gives me the warning,
That the solar age is dawning,
And it's good enough for me

I think I'll sacrifice a virgin, while heavily tattooed priestesses dance nekkid in the moon light. Then maybe have a ham and some taters.

@Setanta,
I've got some tattoos.

Ham for the Cobb salad is a fine idea.

“Two thousand years ago Jesus is crucified, three days later he walks out of a cave and they celebrate with chocolate bunnies and marshmallow Peeps and beautifully decorated eggs. I guess these were things Jesus loved as a child.”
― Billy Crystal, Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys

@edgarblythe,
The explanation for Easter starts at around 2:05
From "Me Talk Pretty One Day" and Davids experience in an adult French class in Paris.

It's the name of the moon goddess Eostre. The story that I heard was that she instructed her servant the hare to tell the people not to be afraid when the moon disappeared because the goddess hadn't gone away she was just doing private stuff. The hare, who sounds like a template for Bugs Bunny, did the opposite, told everyone it was the end of the World, doom, doom etc.

When the goddess returned to quell the riots she appeared as a beautiful bird that laid an egg for the children, and she punished the hare by cutting off his long beautiful tail.

Hence eggs and bunnies.

The best way to celebrate it is with an easter lunch 3 course meal, including roasted lamb and wine as a main beverage with all possible family members after a morning easter holy mass.

@chai2,
You know what we're like for shortening everything, and thank you is such a mouthful.
