Easter, Passover, and the Rest


Dear Jewish reader,
Passover is my favorite Jewish holiday. I love Brisket, I love Matzoh Ball Soup, I love Gefilte Fish (NO SUGAR ADDED) and I especially love Manischewitz wine.

Here in Kentucky, you can usually find the Manischewitz on the same shelf where they keep the Mad Dog 20/20 and the Richards Wild Irish Rose Wine (often referred to as bum wine). It makes me feel very proud to see Manischewitz wine being distinguished with such honor.

Of Course, It's always wonderful to get together with family and good friends each year to see who's gained or lost the most weight. It's also really nice to meet new significant others, weird friends, and most importantly, beautiful babies.

In Short: Happy Passover Jewish Reader.

Dear Christian reader,
Christmas is my favorite Christian holiday, but that doesn't mean that I don't love Ham, Mashed potato's, Hard Boiled Eggs or solid chocolate Easter Bunnies, because I really, really do.

It's a little harder for me to get into Easter probably because a lot of the food associated with Easter is the same as Thanksgiving and Christmas and during Easter I always feel like there's something missing... NFL Football.

During Christmas time there are plenty of games surrounding the 25th of December and when John Madden talks about holidays, he talks about the important things, like food, family and football. I'm sorry but blue bonnets and fucking BASEBALL are not suitable replacements for football, so I always feel a little empty during Easter. Still, it's very nice to get together with family and friends and eat like there's no tomorrow.

In Short: Happy Easter Christian Reader.

Dear Agnostic, Atheist, Scientologist, and everyone else reader,
See you around the campfire, Pal.

Your friend,
Captain Corky

I agree that non-football holidays are less enjoyable. But, have a good Easter anyway.

I decided I don't have any favourite religious holidays. I didn't buy any Christmas gifts nor did I buy any chocolate bunnies. Plus, I have to work on Easter. Bah humbug! ;)

Whether people celebrate Passover or Easter, I like the idea of personal reflection and themes of self-renewal....AND an excuse to each jelly beans.

Cheryl said...

I love Passover food, but that wine? Not so much :)

Molly said...

Yo Corky, How are you? This Methodist might meet you at the campfire.

Happy Belated Easter
