I just love Easter. It amazes me how seriously everyone down here (in the South) takes it. More then any other day of the year, 90% of the stores are closed, churches are packed (according to my Partner who went) and its just an overall big deal.
Yet in actuallity, its has more Pagan roots then another day I think. From the fact that it is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first Full Moon after the Vernal Equinox, to its name (from Eoster) to the fertility bunny *wink and the eggs.
Just makes me smile.
