You might well be correct.

I had assumed it was connected to rolling the rock away at the opening to Christ's tomb.

But then I am an atheist, so what would I know about Christianity?

Who knows what The Pagans got up to?  So many ancient traditions were stolen and then incorporated into Christianity.

Jesus was born in April, by the way.

Picking up on all the posts.
I hope everyone had a lovely day.
Next Easter, definitely Chinese takeaway, still tidying up!

@ Eleanor, I'm sorry about your little pug Charlotte.
Will be thinking of you both.x

My hubby is a Taurean, not nearly as stubborn as me!
I'm a Pisces.
Don't know if Taureans and Pisces are compatible but as we've just celebrated our Golden Wedding, so far so good!!

@ Mrs Wah many congratulations on the birth of your grand daughter.

Here, traditionally  painted hard boiled eggs were rolled on Easter Monday.

Thanks, Erngath.  Charlotte is being spoilt rotten at the moment.  Not that she ever wasn't.  There is absolutely nothing horrid about her.
I will be telling her all about you all on her way to the Vet's.

Many congratulations on your golden wedding.  We still have 18 months to go to clock up our silver.

On the parent's of my wife's parent's 50th, we organised a golden wedding celebration in a local restaurant called the Kam Tong.  We had huge numbers of family there, so we fully occupied the upstairs.

The meal was good.  The conviviality was better.  My beloved's parents thoroughly enjoyed it.  But the highlight of the night was a message from Elizabeth II, her majesty the Queen.

We did not arrange that. And I doubt that Queen Elizabeth monitors golden weddings.

What's up, old man?

I have a granddaughter who celebrates Yule instead of Christmas.

I think Pisces are more likely to 'go with the flow', which stubborn Taureans don't do, so a reasonable match. I found the hosting great, but I still remember the clearing up which definitely wasn't fun. I hope you had a lovely time though making memories.

It was all so much more simple in days of Yore.  A celebration to tide them over until Spring.  This is how I deal with Noel.  The Winter Solstice.

Just read the previous pages-----so sorry about your dog, Eleanor.  We have a little dog, and we can't imagine life without her, although she's a terror for paper, and ate part of my hubby's textbook the other day!

Winter must have seemed very long in the olden days. Not much comfort and not much to do. That's probably why Yule was celebrated on the shortest day of the year. Longer days and springtime were on their way. Shrove Tuesday seems to be specifically Christian, rather than related to pre-Christian practices.

Thanks, mrswah.  I have only had her since she was six years old, but apart from peeing on the floor she has never done anything to be cross about.  She is thirteen years old now and I hope she has had a good time with me.

Aww charlottes time with you will have been her best time - even  up to the end

When we said goodbye to our old boy a friend sent me this video - it made me smile to know I had done all that.

Thank  you for your kind congratulations.
We had a celebration in a local hotel.
About fifty guests, family and friends for dinner.
No telegram from the Queen....I believe now that has stopped and only begins at Diamond weddings.
Its not something we would wish but I'm sure for many it is special to have.

So sorry, Eleanor. I know only too well that dreaded moment of the last trip to the vet.  8(8-))

Thanks, Carana.  I've got a week to spoil her a bit, and some help from a friend this time.

I once made a rather unusual trip to the vets with a buzzard. I put it in the car boot in a cardboard box and my daughter and I opened the boot very cautiously, peering in through a small gap first in case it was no linger in the box. Very large birds they are; not something you want to get too close to.
