    I don't get it.....

    Its a christian holiday taken from a pagan holiday

    my parents are very faithful christians and they don't celebrate it....other than fasting and going to church on good friday, but thats about it.

    just do it.


    i dunno. but some guy came into work yesterday and couldnt understand why we weren't crying over the fact Jesus died on Friday...

    It's a family tradition for many people. Especially those who adhere strictly to Christianity. Like any other religious holiday, people celebrate according to their beliefs, and the beliefs of those who are strong influences.
    Its also a nice excuse for a long weekend :D

    After going to a Baptist church throughout my childhood (my folks made me), this is now one of the two time a year that I go. (The other is of course Christmas)

    I went today.....

    Sang some hymns....

    Picked my fingernails....

    Nodded asleep a few times....

    Giggled quietly with my brothers ( just like when we were kids)

    And listen to a pastor scare us into faith (the part I hate)


    I looked at the ceiling and the walls, the speakers, and the stage .......and thought to myself.

    "What a great place to throw a party"

    Now to get the fuck outta this suit.
    (moms was happy though....I guess that's what matters)

    I couldn't care less about the death of Jesus. I have other things to contemplate in life. I do the dinner with my family cause I know it makes my mom happy.

    My mothers Catholic, and she and my Grandmother got all dressed up today. Just to wander around the house, they were dressed nicely. My brother came home for the weekend, and it's basically a time to spend the weekend with the family. We were happy having a nice hearty lunch together. So basically, the point of chirstmas is to just spend time with family. Or that's the way I see it.

    I ignore the commercial factor of easter. First of all, Cadbury Cream Eggs are sick. Too damn rich, make me feel like to puke.

    But as a kid, I did enjoy coloring eggs. That was fun.

    I must add that most churches would be AMAZING venues to throw down a sick party in. The accoustics are amazing, the ceilings nice and high and usually the buildings are huge. Cathedrals hands down would make the best of the best in venues.

    yes yes!! i think a church would be an awesome venue, especially for something like hard trance/industrial a la darkrave, or even a goa party, the juxtaposition of bhuddist and hindu images in a catholic church with cherubs and thousands of burning & dripping candles looks wickid in my mind.

    i can dream. lalalaa.. :)

    Easter's a chance for government workers to have a Sunday off. I've worked every Sunday for 3 years now. I think I deserve some downtime.

    Not to demean but Jesus died so that we can all sit on our asses, listen to jungle and eat Loblaw's chicken. YES!

    When I went to the Cathedral on Queen Street to scope out places for our defunct TBK party, I was AMAZED.

    They had a beautiful setup where there was a balcony over looking the dancefloor and a huge basement lounge area PERFECT for the d&b. And no sound leakage.

    To top it off, they had a side hallway (VERY spacious) for downtime restups and just chilling.

    Now does everyone wanna pitch in cash to have a party there? :D


    yes it would be. and i was wondering why he was rocking the porn section while preaching about jesus. crackhead.

  24. We have rabbits shitting eggs because children eating the heads off of chocolate Jesus (plural = Jesi?) isn't going to go over well with the Vatican.
