This is funny...you knew there had to be a "war on Easter" lurking in the wings somewhere, didn't you? Seen on Worldnet Daily, reported by Pandagon:
Already, many stores and malls across the U.S. are preparing for seasonal events, with some refraining from usage of terms like "the Easter Bunny," opting instead for more generic terms like "Spring Bunny," or other names avoiding the name "Easter."Except, come on, y'all don't really *like* that aspect of Easter, do you? You know, the pagan aspect? Seems like you wouldn't want to emphasize the connections between this "very important Christian holiday" and pagan fertility symbols.
One such location is the Somerset Collection, an upscale mall in Troy, Mich., serving 14 million shoppers per year. It's now publicizing an event with its "Spring Bunny" and Walt Disney's Winnie the Pooh.
The event caught the attention of WorldNetDaily reader Tim Edwards, who says, "It appears that this very important Christian holiday is under assault just like Christmas is."
The legends of ancient Egypt connect the hare, which comes out at night to feed, with the moon.
Yeah, and rabbits are known for doing it like--for doing it *a lot*.
