Easter salutations

by Cellobella on Thursday, March 20, 2008

It is with some trepidation that I wish you all a Happy Easter.

The last time I politely wished a lovely old lady Happy Easter, she snappishly returned:

“Don’t say that to me! Don’t you know what happened on Good Friday? There’s nothing happy in that!”

I was too taken aback to say another word and today – two years later – think twice before wishing anyone happy Easter before Sunday.

Well, except for people I know… like you… :)

I hope you have a great weekend whatever you get up to. It’s a great chance to catch up with family and friends and relax.

If you’re looking for something to pod over the weekend and you’re a West Wing fan – Gerry Ryan has done an interview with someone who wrote for the series on the similarities between Matt Santos and Barack Obama.

Oooh, it’s a minefield! So, I’m going to say “Happy Chocolate Holiday” just to be safe.

I have always wondered why we call it ‘Good’ Friday. :)

Sounds like the little old lady knew what happened on Good Friday but had no idea of what happened on Easter Sunday. I reckon that’s good enough reason to celebrate. For that reason alone I wish you and your readers a very HAPPY EASTER!!

I agree that Easter greetings can be tricky. As this week calls for healing and spiritual renewal, I say “Blessed and Happy Easter” to you!

I usually say have a good weekend and save the happy easter for family members. My weekend kicked off well, spent the day with three of my children, a son-in-law, and two grandchildren. Tomorrow my niece will drop in to say hi, next day I go to see the fourth child and his family. Good times all round. I hope you and your family have a lovely easter.
