Maybe to celebrate fertility you could say fecund, fecund, fecund. Sounds kinda dirty and gets the job done.

Thanks, that's better!

Yep Constantine and his henchmen coopted the Jesus and pagan rituals with impunity to control all the folks. Happy Spring, everyone. The earth and nature always have the first and last word.

Did not know about Eostre! Sounds like a great excuse to eat too much and celebrate with a few friends. Off to make that happen.

Looking at my 82nd soon. Tell your mom I said, ‘I know’ and ‘yes, it really is’ and ‘yeah, they are’.💕

Funny how all that overlaps...like they stole it from the same source! ✌️🙏💕

Uhhh, that's Ishtar or Astarte, a (previously Sumerian) goddess celebrated at Purim for helping to beat down the forces of Xerxes. But is there a law that say you can't enjoy your Hamantashen whenever you want? Prolly go really well with a dollop of chocolate.

It’s a seasonal celebration. Spring! Rabbits, chickens, flowers blooming. We leave the cold gloom of winter and move into the sun!

If you look closely, there is nothing original in christianity, they 'borrowed' or coopted every facet of their faith and rituals from judaism and the various other (pagan) beliefs. as for cursing, they can all gey cocken affen yam.

As an eternally menopausal, Atheist woman I wish everyone joy for whatever they celebrate or don't. Spring is here, Velveeta Voldemort is finally facing consequences, Covid is at it's lowest numbers & Fox is in a whole lotta hurt. So, for the 7 yrs of endless hell (who can ever forget those "Friday Night Dumps"?) we're all feeling a bit more optimistic. It's been baby steps for so long I'm glad to see the fear in his evil eyes, the GOP eating their own & Gen Z making themselves heard. That deserves a big Fuck Yeah! Now we're on Jack Smith watch....

I like velveeta Voldemort. Wish we could do like the ancients did and erase his name throughout the land!

He will not be remembered kindly in any history book unless Mein Kampf releases a sequel.

I live in Vietnam.

I would kill for a Denny's breakfast

Well Denny’s would probably kill you first.

Wait so you can eat some of the best food on the planet where you are and you want that corporate plastic sludge instead??? Humans really are doomed.

The food is one big reason I moved here. Turns out that Vietnamese food is better in the USA.

But it gets old after a while, and I would just lpve pancakes and bacon once in a while.

And crispy hash browns!

Once in awhile biscuits & gravy and maybe some corn beef hash & poached eggs.

Bagels & lox?

Oh, I M sorry, am I torturing you?

I lived in South America long time bCk and used to have food dreams of Lasagna & lamb chop. I totally get it!

I’m from Southern California, and after traveling anywhere (including 2 week trip with 1 week in Paris with lovely food) the first meal I have when I get home is Sonoran style Mexican food. That’s the kind I I had as a kid and adult, and I start to go into withdrawal if I don’t get some at least once a week.

Write them. Maybe they’ll open one there.

Hi Jeff and happy whatever day you wish to celebrate… me? Well I’m stocked up on peanut butter, matzoh, and excellent AZ flower getting ready to hit it to find my happy place…at 71 I just keep looking for the right balance… BTW, looking forward today where the temps hit around 90.. Ya Mon, it’s going to be a great day. As James Brown would say “let’s get down” it’s a beautiful day. All the best to you and our fellow travelers.

I hope everybody is enjoying whatever Holiday they are celebrating today and not stressing about what's on a beer can.

I got a very disturbing text from my sister-in-law on Easter.....

"Our prayer this Easter is that the risen Jesus may establish his absolute reign in your heart and in the hearts of all close to you"

I'm the only one who got this message. I guess I am some kind of heathen, but hey, I didn't vote for an unqualified, pussy grabbing, corrupt pediphile for President either.
