Go Smell the Easter Celebrations

Are you planning anything Special Over this Easter long Weekend?
Well we are planning to eat loads of Chocolate, and sit around all weekend doing not much… that’s Easter…..
Oh and its my Birthday on Good Friday…. that wont happen again for 200 years.. hope I around to that …lol…
For all those looking for something interesting to do this weekend to celebrate here are few ideas….

You could just for fun have yourself Crucified,
Strip down to your waste men only and whip yourself,
or you could have a lovely sit down meal with the family….

However just out in the Headline news for day came this report…

Philippines warns ‘crucifixion bad for health’

3573211485.jpg

MANILA (AFP) – Philippine health officials Wednesday warned people taking part in Easter crucifixions and self-flagellation rituals to get a tetanus shot first and sterilise the nails to avoid infections.Every Good Friday in this predominately Roman Catholic Southeast Asian nation dozens of men re-enact the crucifixion of Jesus Christ by having themselves nailed to wooden crosses.At the same time hundreds of others, mostly men, strip to the waist and whip themselves until their backs are cut and bloody as a way of atoning for their sins over the past year. The Catholic church frowns upon the crucifixions and self flagellations which have become a tourist attraction in a number of towns around the country.

Well Derrrr! of cause its bad for your health …. didn’t help Jesus any did it….

So what are planning for this Easter Weekend?

A good old fashioned Crucifiction a light whipping anyone or sitting down with the family for a friendly chocolate driven lunch?

do tell

    Wow AC! Any videos or these crucifixions / self-flagellations?

    Seems to be the easy way out – sin all year around and then whip yourself for atonement.

    As for me, I hope to have a very “sinful” Easter weekend in Coventry – and anyone who knows anything about Coventry will no doubt sympathise with me. Perhaps self-flagellation might be less painful :-)

    Only just realised it is Easter this weekend. Here in China they don’t do Easter.
    I might by a thousand year old egg though. Despite their nme thay are normally only about 4 months old, sort of like a hard boiled egg but the yolk turns a geenish/black and the ‘white’ is clear but slightly dark. They stink to high heaven but aren’t bad to eat.

    I’m not sure what we’re doing for Easter. It’s sort of snuck up on us this year. Perhaps we’ll buy a carton of eggs, boil them and dye them pretty colors. Then after admiring them for a suitable amount of time, eat them.
