EASTER GREETINGS....A couple of random ruminations on Easter. First up is Julie Saltman:

If, like me, you're not religious (or at least not Christian), Easter has to be the biggest waste of a holiday. Like, what's the point of having a holiday that falls every year on a Sunday, which hullo? is already a holiday! OK, true, I dig the chocolate-eating part. I'll give you that. There was a clear need for a chocolate-oriented holiday in the calendar.

Hear hear! Chocolate Butter Eggs from See's Candies have always been the traditional Easter chocolate around here although I'm pretty sure they've mysteriously shrunken over the years, like so many other chocolate treats of our childhood. Since this has happened at the same time that I myself have grown larger, it seems especially unfair.

Next up is Matt Yglesias:

I didn't know any practicing Christians when I was growing up, which perhaps accounts for the fact that I'm not sure what one is supposed to say on Easter Sunday.

Now that's a sheltered childhood. Happy Easter, Matt!

UPDATE: More chocolate Easter humor here.
