Happy Easter!

Oh how i have always loved Easter time: the spring time weather trying to sneak its way in, the beautiful blue skies, spring break, the easter egg hunts, a new dress or outfit, new shoes, and sometimes we even curled my hair for the holiday! what a fun time! i used to love my parents easter egg hunts because there was always money in the eggs instead of candy! i would get plenty of candy at the church egg hunt...the money was awesome! it was and still is such a special holiday at church. everyone is so excited and happy and sometimes you see people that you might not have seen in years! there is such a stir in the air because: HE IS RISEN! what glorious news!

there is also a funny side of easter found in comics and online in various places. i leave you with a few holiday funnies that i found today:

With Apologies to Blondes comes an Easter joke:

Three blondes died and are at the pearly gates of heaven. St. Peter tells them that they can enter the gates if they can answer one simple question. St. Peter asks the first blonde, "What is Easter?" The blonde replies, "Oh, that's easy! It's the holiday in November when everyone gets together, eats turkey, and are thankful and stuff..." "Wrong!," replies St. Peter, and proceeds to ask the second blonde the same question, "What is Easter?" The second blonde replies, "Easter is the holiday in December when we put up a nice tree, exchange presents, and drink eggnog." St. Peter looks at the second blonde, shakes his head in disgust, tells her she's wrong, and then peers over his glasses at the third blonde and asks, "What is Easter?" The third blonde smiles confidently and looks St. Peter in the eyes, "I know what Easter is." "Oh?" says St. Peter, incredulously. "Easter is the Christian holiday, that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus and his disciples were eating at the last supper. Then the Romans took him to be crucified and he was stabbed in the side, made to wear a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross with nails through his hands. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder." St. Peter smiles broadly with delight. Then the third blonde continues, "Every year the boulder is moved aside so that Jesus can come out...and, if he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter."

Both of these funnies were found here. Happy Easter to you all!!!

i promise knittng content next time!
