Happy Easter, Passover, or Just Have a Nice Day.

By: The Dude on the Right
Today is Easter, and thanks to the boys of "South Park" we found out why the Easter Bunny is such an important aspect of the holy day.  It has nothing to do with some bizarre "rabbits are fertile" nor "you couldn't eat eggs during lent" tradition, as Wikipedia wants to explain, rather it is because Peter, yea, the first Pope, was a bunny rabbit.  The proof is in the wacky hat the pope wears.

But other than some reassessment of my faith by the "South Park" boys, Easter is usually just a day of traditions wrapped around the story of the resurrection of Jesus.  My buddy Stu asked about some of the traditions our family had, and other than the Polish tradition of ham and sausage for dinner, like lots of folks in Lorain, OH, there was the dressing up in your Sunday best, heading to church, and then heading to Lakeview Park to get your picture taken in front of the giant "Easter" basket.  And maybe my memory is being selective right now, but the other thing I seem to remember about having to get our picture taken that morning was that the weather was usually crappy, even if it was sunny, because it was at best cold with the wind coming off of the lake, kinda like most of my memories of attending the Chicago Cubs Opening Day (where the weather forecast for tomorrow is maybe breaking the 40 degree mark with flurries).

And with that trip down memory lane, whether you are celebrating Easter, Passover, or just wondering who that Jesus dude was and what's he have to do with an Easter Bunny, Egg Hunts, and chocolate, I hope you had a nice weekend, and I hope you vote for Sanjaya after Tuesday's American Idol.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

Hey, do you have any of those pictures you mention taking at the Lorain Easter basket?

I'm trying to collect people's pictures taken there. I want to do an article for The Plain Dealer and ultimately want to preserve my collection, perhaps in a book or in a display at the historical society.

You can e-mail me any pictures you have. Also, please help me spread the word!
