Well, Easter is coming up again.  Sadly, I am not particularly Christian, so it's religious significance is lost on me.  But, like a lot of Christian holidays, the day has been secularized and commercialized out of all recognition.  I am okay with that, though, since a lot of Christian holidays are themselves merely co-opted from ancient pagan celebrations. 

I have to admit, though, that worshipping a bunny that delivers chocolate to children seems to be a step or two down from even pagan religions that celebrated whatever it was at this time of the year - Spring, renewal, the cycle of life and death - let alone the death and resurrection of humanity's saviour.

In any case, whatever your beliefs, be they commercial, secular, pagan or Christian, I wish you all a happy and safe Easter.
