I totally forgot to post these pictures from like a week ago!
My mom and aunt came over for “Easter” on Good Friday, which my mom had off. For the record, I’m an atheist, but I find it HYSTERICAL that Christians color eggs and hunt eggs on Easter and most can’t tell you why. As a historian…I can. Pre-Christian fertility holiday…where did you think all the eggs and bunny’s were coming from? Like Christmas it’s a holiday celebrated on a specific date because the church was having trouble with forcing conversion upon a resistant population and the only way from keeping people from fucking in the fields (fertility holidays) was to create/move/whatever a holiday where they had to be in church all day. And like Christmas trees, it’s so adorable how Christians think they INVENTED it instead of co-opting it. And thus, as an atheist and specifically as a former Catholic, I celebrate the parts of Easter I find amusing (eggs, egg hunts, presents, candy) and dismiss the parts I don’t (church, a zombie Jesus, sin, Heaven and Hell).
So…we colored eggs
Egg, you say? What do I do with it?
Okay Mommy, I’ll humor you…
Huh…would you look at that??
See what I did??? I made…I don’t know what, exactly, but since it makes you happy, Mommy, I’m happy.
There were baskets with presents
Presents?! Now I’m happy!!
We hunted eggs
Ignore all the other crap in the background…we’re hunting EGGS
And we’re taking them out so we can hunt them again
And I took the opportunity to dress my kid in a stupid costume (sort of)
If you ever show this to a boy/girlfriend I bring home, I’ll hurt you Mommy. Grandma…I thought you were way nicer than this.
