Sunday: Hili dialogue

by Grania

Good morning, and happy festival of the fertility goddess to you. Whether you are going to be knee deep in chocolate bunnies and children; or are just having a tranquil Sunday; I hope it is a good one for you.

Over in Poland, Hili is rejecting all the rites of the burgeoning spring and sticking with what she likes.

EASTER
A: Do you want an egg for beakfast?
Hili: No eggs, just ham.

P1030963

In Polish:

WIELKANOC
Ja: Chcesz jajko na śniadanie?
Hili: Żadnych jajek, tylko szynka.

Matthew sent Jerry this tw**t, it’s a rare sight.

From Canada, reader Taskin has sent us in photos of Gus who has been remodeling his favorite box for some time. It must be almost done by now. The intricate handiwork (toothiwork?) is impressive.

    Easter does indeed have pagan origins:

    “Easter was named after Eostre (a.k.a. Eastre). She was the Great Mother Goddess of the Saxon people in Northern Europe. Similarly, the “Teutonic dawn goddess of fertility [was] known variously as Ostare, Ostara, Ostern, Eostra, Eostre, Eostur, Eastra, Eastur, Austron and Ausos.” 1 Her name was derived from the ancient word for spring: “eastre.” Similar Goddesses were known by other names in ancient cultures around the Mediterranean, and were celebrated in the springtime.”

    Knowing that makes me much more appreciative than struggling in my head with the nightmare of the zombie.

    Now THIS is a proper Eostre egg hunt, gorilla-style!:
