In the spirit of this holiday please complete the following sentence.
It just wouldn’t be Easter without ______________

It just wouldn't be Easter without a fragrant and fork-tender roast leg of lamb with all the trimmings.

Sees Candy Fudge egg. Slice off delicious chunks of fudge with walnuts as needed for therapy.

Boquet of bright yellow jonquils.

Watching my grandson picking up the "bunny turds" of licorice jelly beans left in a trail to the goodies.

Reading the haggadah for all the meanings of freedom, particularly the Dayanu (enough) to remind you of your blessings.

I'm with Walt - roast leg of lamb with a red wine reduction, roasted new potatoes, maple-glazed carrots and asparagus tips, and fresh baked buttermilk cheddar cheese biscuits to soak everything up.

I'm thinking, this recipe would work out really great.

I could never bring myself to eat lamb, but the rest of the meal sounds wonderful.

A sunny day.
A sunny disposition.
A sunny-side-up egg breakfast.

Gallons of scotch on the rocks.

I never understood why Christians celebrate Easter (or Christmas) fo that matter. It's pagan holiday celebrating the coming of spring and fertility (hence the eggs and bunnies).

All the time Christians spent killing and persecuting pagans and now they celebrate their holidays. What a weird twist of karmic fate.

May everyone have a blessed time worshiping the Goddess Easter (Oestre, Eostre)

May you be fertile and have lots of kids or something.

Haven't you folks heard the news?

There is no Easter!
They found the body.

Ok, just parody. My Mom will get mad but I believe God can take a joke, or God wouldn't be God.

It just wouldn't be Easter without ham.

Hemming dresses.

Five younger sisters and a mother who sewed their dresses.

50 some years later I can still sew.

Threading the needle is a little harder than it use to be. Tri-focals.

jos s. doesn't realize how correct he is. They have found the body of Jesus but are yet to recognize it, officially that is. A lot of archaeologists now realize that the fable of Jesus, the Gospels were spawned by the life of the Egyptian Pharaoh, Amenophis IV.

The Amen, (Fraudian slip in Revelation) did everything Jesus did but the most compelling evidence is that "She" chased, (threw) the money changers out of the temple of God. That's a historical unique that the Romans and all other failed to record when the Jewish Jesus did it. The Egyptians recorded it and it has been found.

The story is at

Now we can be thankful that Easter is a pagan hiliday and won't have to be canceled. The same is true for Christmas which is "all gods day" in Roman culture. Halloween is the same story, a pagan holiday. Only the 4th of July reamains unscaved.

Oh, sorry. It just wouldn't be Easter without children.

Without them we'd have to eat all that candy ourselves. Wouldn't that be awful?
