  9. A question I have that scmart KisPers prolly can answer. When, where and why did colorful hard-boiled eggs and the Easter egg hunt get connected to the religious celebration, Easter Sunday?

    Me; I love hard-boiled eggs, cuz they are sooo easy to make, peel and liberally covered w black pepper taste cosmic! Ever now & then I might use an egg slicer, put the slices on toast, smother w *nuclear hot mexican sauce!*, cover w a nother piece of toast and have a sammich that makes my socks roll up and down + tears running down my face, justifying a breakfast dark Irish ale/beer—–or—-three!

  10. Amen indeed.

    Jerry, I think it’s the old “what came first, the chicken or the egg” thing… the egg represents fertility and birth and all that spring stuff… pagans…

  13. Colonel and Sondra, the giving of eggs during Pascha (the original & ‘correct’ name for Easter) is an old Christian tradition dating to the first century. Tradition holds that Simon the Cyrene, (who was forced to bear the cross after Jesus was unable) was an egg merchant. Plausible, since eggs were/are a common passover-seder food. When he returned to his wares, the eggs were red. Mary Magdalene, one of the myrrh-bearing women, is often portrayed in iconography holding a red egg (when not portrayed with a vase of myrrh). Through the centuries, eggs were often dyed with whatever was available–onion skin, beet, and other vegetable colorants were common in Europe. Today it is common (especially in Orthodox churches) to have red eggs distributed after the resurrection services.

  15. At the end of a long and busy day, it occurred to me that all the crap I had to get done today was just that, crap! Wish I had at least taken a moment to reflect.

  17. LostLiberty…is always a challenge for me especially during such challenging times…but I have been working hard over the last few years to purposely concentrate on my many MANY blessings and not allow the petty distractions to distract me. It started big time with The Asylum and has gotten easier as time goes on.
    I’m finding that my relationship with God has gotten EASIER as things fall apart around me.

    Our obligations and responsibilities are important, but it doesn’t mean we can’t address BOTH.
    It just takes a little more work for people like us to “give ourselves permission” to address our emotional and spiritual needs. I make a point every day to have a chat with God and while He occasionally has to give me a thump on the head, acknowledging my blessings gets easier.
    You can reflect TODAY!
