    Happy Easter you miserable lot


    Dicky has a lot to answer for.

    ---

    Unless you have young kids, this time of year probably passes you by.

    Mine are doing chocolate filled laps inside the house, bouncing off walls.


    Me? I'm going some indoor construction.

    A new personal record.


    I got one more can to that tower till the physical restraints of the ceiling impeded my rival to Trump Tower

    The kids, of course couldn't resit knocking them down, so Beer Can Skittles it was
    with SWMBO complaining of the beer dregs being spilt over her floor (she had a valid point there)



    Happy Easter you miserable lot

    When did wishing people a happy Easter become a thing? I can't remember ever being wished a happy Easter before.

    Doesn't that apply to all religions?

    I heard a few Thais say Happy Valentine’s Day this year which didn’t sound right too

    We used to do Easter egg hunts in the garden many years ago. I fit wasn't raining!

    One of my brothers reckons he was conceived on the Italian "Immaculate Conception Day" holiday evening, December 8th.

    He still loves Tiramisu.

    Three days I can't work meaning three extra days in Germany and three less days in Thailand. Silly bloody holiday should be in March or May, not April.

    At least it was sunny over the weekend here and not silly hot like in the village.

    THB most adults let alone kids don't remember what its is at heart, sad really as its just further evidence of the insidious nature of business - nearly every religious celebration is now a marketing opportunity. i'm not really religious but always taught my kids the moral backdrop and what the reason for the celebration was for , not just Christian, i tried to expose then to Jewish, Arabic and Hindu etc also. It as a great way to get them interested and actually taking them to street fairs, parties etc and this was in the 80/90s.

    What say you Cy, you've got an opinion on almost every post.

    ^ Why eggs and bunny rabbits? It's a Pagan fertility festival hijacked by the Christians and then (as you say) commercialism.

    Well its the resurrection and TBH its probably the most significant of Christian dates, yes there are pagan associations but why argue?... on this day FFS

    if so you are just recounting the usual religious discourse, that its fundamentally all a made up lie? so on this day and given the attorcity that's happened Troy why not just set aside your own beliefs and lets just say an agnostic prayer for all those who should be having a family occasion but instead will be burying them eh.

    I haven't seen any Easter eggs in the 7/11 so it's not really Easter (for me).
