First off, happy Easter everyone. I hope you all have a great day.
We all know what Easter is about. So I won't bore you readers with a bit of history.
What I will do is share with you something, well, odd.
It's coming round midnight here, so this little bunny has been busy! Getting the baskets, the candies, the gifts all ready.
And one of the things we do in my house is leave an offering.
of·fer·ing (ôfr-ng, fr-)
1. The act of making an offer.
2. Something, such as stock, that is offered.
3. A presentation made to a deity as an act of religious worship or sacrifice; an oblation.
4. A contribution or gift, especially one made at a religious service.
What got me is definition #3.
A presentation made to a deity as an act of religious worship or sacrifice; an oblation.
Now at Christmas, we leave oats for the reindeer. We add glitter and sugar to make it "shiny". We also leave cookies and milk for the Jolly Old
At Easter, we leave a plate of carrots and (tonight) spinach.
Now we all know what Easter is about, but are we (or people like me) a bunch of closet-pagans?
Just a silly thought for a late night.
