Easter: Jewish Zombie Day

by

Easter– a bizarre combination of superstition, astronomy, and astrology. It is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox.

The vernal equinox is a legitimate astronomical marker, important to primitive hunter gatherers and early farmers.  I can understand celebrating and remembering that.

The “first full moon” is less important, other than astrologically. That particular full moon is no more or less important than any other, but I suppose the additional light at night was more important at one time than it is today.

The significance of Sunday is strictly superstitious.

The whole holiday is a mix of ancient pagan religions and stories sewn together into a Frankenstein’s Monster of a holiday by Christianity to celebrate their Jewish zombie. Scary.

You could just celebrate the arrival of spring without making up lies about it, couldn’t you? Celebrate it on time, though, instead of over a month late.

Either way, watch out for the mythical Jewish zombie. He can’t hurt you but his followers are hungry for your brain!
