Happy Easter, everyone! If you're a fellow christian of some stripe or another, I hope you enjoy church and have a great celebration.

If you celebrate the holiday sans religion, then I hope you enjoy a restful day with family and friends.

If you don't celebrate Easter at all, then may you enjoy something during the day in which you find joy, even if it's the perfect cup of coffee or a great night's sleep.

I normally send wishes on the holiday, but I'm going to be out of town. Have a great weekend, all.

Happy Easter to you too old friend. Back in the old country, we used to celebrate the Easter brew (a seasonal beer) by consuming large quantities of it. They don't have quite the same traditions in this Odin forsaken country down here, so I'll settle for some red wine, a few chocolate eggs and a new book ;)

What are we celebrating again. Bunny > Jesus > ? > profit.

Påskebryg is a vile concoction by the way.

Happy Easter as well. My kids will be searching for eggs tomorrow morning for sure. Although it doesn't really feel like spring yet, it is still very cold here in California.

I still haven't found a church in my area that I'm comfortable attending, but we'll still make it a special day.

Some people in the Philippines crucify themselves every year to show their compassion with the suffering of Christ.

Yeah. I like Påskebryg better than crucifiction.

Honestly, I prefer the Filipino tradition of voluntary crucifixion over the ridiculous consumer whore parade that Easter has become in English-speaking countries.

Tradition, by mutilation people. uh huh.

No thanks. I take the consumer paradise over this barbarism anytime, anywhere.

Happy Easter to you all.

On Tuesday, I'll have to work out like I have never done before. *eats another egg*

This might come as a surprise to you, but there are also lots of people in Austria who are into causing themselves pain. How they choose to do it doesn't really have any relevance, whether we condone of the acts or not.

A few extra chocolate eggs and seasonal beers on sale. That's about it. How do you get from there to consumer orgy.

No, it's not tradition for Austrians to mutilate themselves. Unless we're talking about some Muslim groups that commit honor murdering, but that's not my point.

I think he was referring to masochists, suicides, cutters etc that we have a lot of here in the west - and that doing it for a religious purpose is not worse than doing it for a sexual one.
