Over the past several years I’ve grown out of Easter.
First, in my early teen years, I began to realise that hollow milk chocolate is the worst chocolate in the world. Can’t I pay $20 for a massive egg that’s filled?
Sure, Lindt (good Swiss chocolate) have their Easter Bunnies, but they’re still hollow; no fun!
Then, in my late teen years, I decided I’ve had enough chocolate. So I began to ask for different kinds of presents at Easter. Gladly, my parents agreed.
Easter Egg Hunts are fun, but when it’s just my sister and I there isn’t really any competition; we share.
In 2004, I remember asking everyone I knew (especially religious people) why on Earth did Easter change days that year. I swear it was always on April the 14th. Or 19th?
Every year since then I’ve asked people the same question. I believe I got an answer once, but it didn’t stick in my brain, so I’m clueless again.
I’m not very religious at all. I love God, Bruce Almighty, Jesus, Moses (because he parted the Red Sea or something), and most of all the Dalai Lama. But I wouldn’t be able to tell you what religious meaning Easter has.
Jesus died and rose again, right? Well how the heck can the date that happened change every year? Did the person (one of Jebuses disciples?) recording this in to the bible just write “Good Friday”? Because that disciple hated him or something?
I’m sure non-religious people have been confused about Easter since forever. If not, go me!
Now I’m probably going to have Tom Cruise and every other religion turn up at my door — or at least the comments section of this post — and start cramming it in to my brain. Which is kind of what I need/want? No, I will not come to CCCCCC on Sunday, but I’ll listen to your Easter Bunny story. 🙂
Now for a reason why holidays — in this case Easter — suck.
This evening I casually asked my sister why Supernatural wasn’t on TV last night. I didn’t expect much of an answer. She said “Probably because of the long weekend holiday …” That was enough to bring back memories of this time last year and make me furious!
Yes, once again, the TV networks aren’t airing any new content over the whole week leading up to the Easter holiday; No Supernatural, no LOST, and no House. Guess what, it looks like I’ll have more time to catch up on Lonelygirl15 and other new media form shows. w00t!
This got me so worked up that I decided I’m going to do an Easter edition of TPAN. Just like I did a Christmas edition. Yup, I’m going to record a show ON Easter. That’s how much I CARE about my audience.
The TV networks can have fun with their low ratings this week. kbye!
