Easter time is very sacred for Christians. We Christians usually go to church Christmas and Easter if we do not go any other time. I respect that, and this entry in no way disparages that.
From my prospective as a child, I LOVED Easter. This boy loved boiled eggs. I also loved hunting them. I believe it is a SIN to use plastic eggs, no bunny ever laid plastic eggs (LOL). You ever try to salt one of them dudes and eat it, no way.
I never believed bunnies laid eggs real or plastic, I never saw the correlation between the two. I spent a little time in the country growing up and knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, Chickens ‘laid them eggs’!
At Easter mama seldom cracked an egg boiling them, but when she did, little Jackie got that egg and immediately went for the salt shaker. My mama had a ‘second sense’, she always boiled enough for someone who did not have any Easter Eggs. We never had fancy baskets, any basket was good.
Did you color eggs? We did, that was fun. I loved the little magic crayon, you could draw or write on the egg before it was dyed, and when dyed your art came out.
Deciding color schemes was fun. Then later some little transfer figures came with the dye that you could add to the egg, it was all fun. BUT the most fun was the Egg Hunt! I loved that. We got to keep the eggs we found, what we didn’t eat, was taken home for deviled egg sandwiches. I got mad at the eggs that didn’t peel easy!
Deviled Egg sandwich, now was that a contradiction? We celebrated Jesus coming out of the Tomb with the egg, which symbolized ‘New Life’, then made ‘deviled egg sandwiches’ out of the eggs. I really don’t think Jesus cared, it just seemed funny to me. Maybe that was OK because we mashed the egg up really bad. Maybe that was why I was so mischievous, I ate too many deviled eggs!!!
Thanks for coming by the log, and Have a great Easter Seaosn.
PS: A child’s point of view:
Jesus had twelve opossums.
The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him.
Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount.
But the Democrats and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus. He just washed his hands instead.
Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again. He went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminum.
His return is foretold in the book of Revolution.
But you have to admit this is one heavenly car
