Celebrate Easter

Weekend  Church ads read:
Easter should satisfy your soul  ~ not just your sweet tooth.
The true meaning of Easter doesn’t need to be sugar-coated.

“Easter spells out beauty ~ the rare beauty of new life.”
(S D Gordon)

“Twas Easter Sunday ~ the full blossomed trees
filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.”
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

Usually, Easter held annually is the first Sunday after the full moon...either on or after March 21 up to and including April 25.  For many, Easter is a religious time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Bible. Akin to Christmas, it has a secondary celebration...that of the Easter Bunny.

Good idea ~ finding Easter eggs on Easter Sunday.
Bad idea ~ finding Easter eggs at Thanksgiving!

Gratitude, I send to Tom for the following story about:

The Easter Bunny

A man is driving along a highway and sees a rabbit jump out across the middle of the road.  He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the rabbit jumps right in front of the car.  The driver, a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulls over and gets out to see what has become of the rabbit.  Much to his dismay, the rabbit is the Easter Bunny...and he is DEAD!  The driver feels awful...and begins to cry.

A beautiful blonde woman, driving down the highway, sees a man crying on the side of the road and pulls over. She steps out of the car and asks the man, “What's wrong?”  He explains, “I feel terrible. I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with my car...and KILLED HIM.”  the blonde says, “Don't worry.”

She runs to her car and pulls out a spray can.  She walks over to the limp, dead Easter Bunny...bends down and sprays the contents onto him.  The Easter Bunny jumps up...waves its paw at the two of them and hops off down the road.  Ten feet away, he stops...turns around and waves...again he hops off down the road another ten feet...turns and waves...hops another ten feet...turns and waves...and repeats this again and again and again and again...until he hops out of sight.

The man is astonished.  He runs over to the woman and demands, “WHAT is in that can?  WHAT did you spray on the Easter Bunny?”  The woman turns the can around so that the man can read the label.  It says...(Are you ready for this? You know you're going to be sorry!)  Here it is:

“Hair Spray!  Restores Life to Dead Hair
and Adds Permanent Wave!”

Happy Easter!!!

You'll wake upon Easter morning and you'll know that he was there ~
when you find those choc'late bunnies that he's hiding ev'rywhere.”
(Gene Audry)

How does the Easter Bunny keep his fur clean?  He uses a hare brush.
Did you hear about the two bald-headed rabbits expecting a little hare on Easter weekend?
Why does the Easter Bunny have a shiny nose?  Because the powder puff is on the other end.

“When the Easter Bunny met the Rabbit of his dreams,
they lived hoppily ever after.”

Happy Easter...
some Bunny loves you!
