The other day I got the opportunity to explain to a catholic what bunnies and eggs have to do with Easter. What a treat.
I told him Pagans have a holiday in Spring that competes with the Zombie Jesus. These evildoers use this day to celebrate fertility with eggs and bunnies as symbols of fertility. I couldn't resist telling him that PAGAN stands for People Against Goodness And Normalcy :)
I wonder if he'll still let his kids go on Easter Egg Hunts.
I have no idea where Easter Ham comes from. Pigs are not symbols of fertility.
