We interrupt this religious holiday for this commercialization.

Now, I’m not one to tell people (to their faces, at least) what to do, but a conversation with Calculus on what she’ll be doing this Easter Weekend has got me thinking. Has Christianity indoctrinated itself successfully into the culture that it is a widely celebrated holiday, or have the heathens colonized it? Obviously, I’m not trying to be philosophically deep (that’s just not me). It’s just that it’s been a slow day and well, the conversation went something like this:

“Any plans for Easter?”

“Well, it would be nice not to have any grading to do, but that doesn’t seem likely."

“My mom and me are going to a spa. We do it every Easter. They do this thing where they paint your finger nails like Easter eggs.”

“Uh, okay.”

“Then we watch Pretty Woman. It’s like my favorite movie of all time.”

During my silent response I’m trying to figure out the connection between Pretty Woman and Easter.

“Then, we have eggnog milkshakes.”

“Eggnog milkshakes?”

“Yeah, since Easter is about Jesus and stuff, it wouldn’t feel right not to have Christmas represented.”

Whew, for a second there I thought she was being sacrilegious.

Anyway, if you’re looking for eggs or searching for a savior, the best of luck to you!
