OK if you are muslim or jewish or sumthing else - please ignore this thread - actualy dont go - read on just for the sake of it :thumbsup:
What I wanted to get across was this :
Has everyone actualy forgotten the meaning of Easter ?

Easter is supposed to be bigger then Christmas - and al we see every day before a big celebration - is - OHHHH MUMMY! can ihave that? I want a cadbury egg! Hey mate - I got 10 eggs hahaha etc, etc, u get the point.
Every christian event is turned into something else - ditching the true meaning.

Chrsit is reborn and everyone goes out and buys coco eggs - only thinking about wat flavour they get!
Easter is bigger then christmas - he was born - yeh well everone has a chance to be born - but not everyone has a chance to die and come back to life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

vise.. ^ how very astute of you. That reply just adds SO MUCH to the discussion at hand. :thumbsup:

When I was a kid.. Easter was about wearing a pretty dress.. and going to Church. Getting dressed up and then having a wonderful meal with family. Now it seems that all it means is goodies, candy.

That is my bad for not teaching my children properly what Easter is about, for not taking them to church.

People just want holidays I guess. Then they put their own meanings on it.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?

While H.L. Mencken's translation is acceptable, one can find the original German text and a preferred translation (by Walter Kaufmann, with emandations) here:

For a brief biography of HLM, an interesting person by himself, there is:

John, you never cease to amaze me with the breath of your knowledge.

My memorys of Easter are two fold, the observance of the Holy day starting out with getting into the itchy wool suit, and sitting in church squirming on the pew, and then on the way home Dad would discuss the sermon with my three brothers and my self so that we understood the significance of the day. After we got home my brothers and myself would stay dressed up for the Easter dinner, but once the dinner was over... it was back into the blue jeans and sweatshirt, and mother would give us our Easter baskets.

Just for the record, to this day I will not own a wool suit.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
