Have I ever complained on here about how Christmas is a much bigger holiday than Easter? I don’t understand why we celebrate Jesus’ birth with such gusto, but only commemorate his resurrection with chocolate bunnies and ham. Recent reports have shown that nearly 99.856% of all the people who have ever lived were, at some point in their lives, born.* And as far as I can recall only about three have ever returned from the dead… and that was all because of Jesus.
So anyway, enough of that. I won’t even complain about the lack of good Easter songs to share with you this year. I’ll just give you my favorite hymn.
