Happy Easter!

I don't really celebrate Easter. When Meredith was young I would make an Easter Basket Treasure Hunt for her every year. She'd get a rhymed clue; when she figured it out it would lead her to another clue, and so on. The last clue would lead her to the hidden basket, with the chocolate bunny sitting on top.

But once she grew out of it, that was about it. Unlike Christmas, all the secular aspects of which I happily embraced as a Unitarian Universalist, Easter really is primarily a religious holiday -- with a (to me) preposterous story that has no resonance for me in any way.

But I joined my church choir about two years ago, so I was there for rehearsal at 8:00 this morning. We sang "Dry Bones" (you know -- "dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones ... de neck bone connected to de head bone ...") which is based on Ezekiel 37 and is easy and lots of fun to sing. We use a wonderful jazzy gospel arrangement. The congregation loved it -- they applauded at both services!

I did buy some chocolate mousse Peeps bunnies, and had some when I got home from church. Mmmm, even more yummy than regular Peeps! Now I'm going to go take a nap.

If you celebrate Easter, I hope it's a joyful one.

Easter has been unimportant to me for so many years, that I was surprised to find so many places closed today! We tried to go to the Iraqi place nearby and even they were closed. We did get Indian food.

I've co-oped all the egg and bunny images into my joy of spring thinking so I like the Easter paraphernalia. Otherwise, yeah...eh.

Buy green bunny peeps, turn them upside down, and split each ear in half with kitchen scissors. Voila -- Cthulhu peeps!
