Easter Is On It's Way

I pondered the ridiculousness of me, an atheist, celebrating Easter, with my friend Hillary today.

Not that Hillary.

I don't believe in God. Easter just pushes 'going along' to an extreme. Not only am I suppose to believe in some celestial being, I am also to think that he rose from the grave?

I don't even like peeps, I wrote. I know. It's UN-American.

If Jesus sees his shadow, we get 6 more weeks of peeps... she responded.




All I can say is... AMEN.

I am not a believer in Christianity (who knows the alleged true meaning of Easter) and yet I love celebrating Easter! From the egg hunts, the candy and especially the peeps, Easter to me always meant Spring and renewal of life.

It is also around this time of year that I do reflect of my beliefs of a higher power and creator of all complex intricate and delicate things that fill with life. Somehow all these things positively reflect to me a divine intervention.

Love the peep pic!

Old UU kids' hymn, totally unofficial, but passed from kid to kid:

Jesus Christ is ris'n in glory,
aaaa-le-lujah.
But we don't believe the story,
Aaaa-le-lu-jah.
Fo our sins he can't have died,
Aaaa-le-lu-jah.
In them we're well satisfied,
Aaaa-le-lu-jah.


Have you heard it yet?


My kids were bright enough not to sing it to their non-UU friends.
