Ha ha! That reminds me of my sister and her husbands Dec 23. Every year is Excess-mas. They have friends over for glutenous eating and drinks into the wee hours of the night.

We have Darwin day not officially government sanctioned, and I would love to see a Christopher Hitchens day a well, but that aint going to happen anytime soon.

Seems kind of superfluous really. You don't need a particular day of the year to realize that god concepts and organized religion are bollocks.

Can we stop celebrating Columbus Day instead? Cause that guy was one of the biggest douche-bags ever... Dodgy

Meh, you want to get technical no matter the label every day has 24 hours, yea you can do everything and the same thing on any given day, true.

But we all mark milestones both personally, religiously and nationally. Is there a reason for it? Not when you consider that all this is for nothing and the planet will die and none of us will be remembered.

But I see nothing wrong with celebrating because considering how much death there is in reality, celebrating is a emphatic "PHEW!" made it another day.

Rabbits don't even lay eggs. I know it's OT but this has been bothering me my whole life...

Eggs and Rabbits are used not because rabbits lay eggs. They are both symbols of fertility. Eggs are pretty obvious, and if you've never been around a rabbit you've probably heard the phrase "Fuck like rabbits". Those motherfuckers reproduce like it's going out of style.

Easter comes from the Old English "Ēostre", which was a Anglo-Saxon goddess associated with fertility.

From a quick internet search, the 'informational pic' is wrong. The pronunciation isn't exactly the same for one, the symbols of Ishtar are not eggs, nor bunnies, but rather a lion and an 8-pointed star. Additionally, tradition suggests it much more likely comes from Ēostre.

That's from a brief search, but you're welcome to present your arguments.
