Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone out there who is either a loyal reader (all 4 of you) or those who stumble across my blog. We were talking at work last week about how the date of Easter is determined. Turns out Easter is always on the Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. I got to thinking--"Dang! That's a pretty pagan way of determining the date of a Christian holiday!" Heidi and I were talking about it, and we figure it had to have come from combining a pagan holiday with a Christian one. And wow, there's something to that theory.

Of course, when we were kids, my dad had us convinced that the Easter bunny brought rocks instead of eggs.

And as for the whole Easter bunny thing, having seen Donnie Darko, people dressed up in bunny outfits isn't as benign as it used to be.

Happy Easter everyone!!
