|Easter summed up in a basket - chocolate eggs, bunny, Cadbury and cake - anyone seen Jesus knocking about?|
As you know I am not overly religious and I explained previously that if I were to partake in a bit of church going then I'd be a Mormon (see this post ). My husband said "I can't believe you're taken in by that lot!"A lot of people see it more as a sect than as a religious group. The Mormons can't seem to shake the history of polygamy which hasn't been practised for over 100 years. They also ask that you give 10% of your earnings to the church which makes my husband even more sceptical.
|When Hot Cross Buns go bad|
Now I understand all the significance of the eggs (representing the boulder), the Simnel cake (the Apostles), the hot cross bun (the cross), the end of lent and the feast etc etc. Don't get me wrong I like to enjoy celebrations and occasions with the next person and food and drink will always be used for doing this. But there is a line that needs to be drawn and consuming tons of chocolate Easter Eggs is that line. Its disgusting when you really think about it. Its not big and its not clever.
Step away from the chocolate. Think about the significance of Easter, think about the people who can't gorge themselves silly, think about whether or not you want to be the next contestant on The Biggest Loser.
If none of that stops you then think about your waist line and then think about thanking me!
