Happy Jewish Zombie Day12 April, 2009
Happy Easter — the one truly Christian holiday with no borrowings from pre-Christian religions. Well, alright, the Last Supper was, supposedly, a Seder, which is, of course, Jewish. And the eggs are a pre-Christian fertility symbol. As is the bunny rabbits. And the ham was borrowed from the gentiles as a way of saying, “See, we’re no longer Jews, so stop persecuting us.” And the Easter baskets are also a pagan holdover. And the lamb, which should have been a sacrificial offering, has just morphed into moulded butter which we chop up with knives. So. Christ (if, of course, he actually lived) was Christian, right? No, he was a Jew and a Rabbi.
Well, happy Jewish Zombie Day anyway. Now I gotta go to work.
Here is a good (non-snark, no sarcasm) view of the pre-Christian origions of Easter (History.com).
