Seriously Easter is the day when Jesus rose from the dead and yet we all celebrate by hiding plastic easter eggs filled with chocolate candy and peeps

Well, that's how you celebrate Easter.

chocolate is good... releases endorphins, makes body feel good. Jesus makes me feel good. You see the connection?

Take a bite of good chocolte= take a bite of jesus flesh for salvation?

Chocolate is awesome. Are we really going to ask why we are eating chocolate?

Because when I think of bloody human sacrifice, hollow chocolate rabbit-shaped candy couldn't be more fitting.

I couldn't care less about the supposed resurrection of Jesus. I ADORE the pagan bunny rabbits, however. And I'm happy for any excuse to eat chocolate.
