It’s Easter Weekend: we’re off to celebrate the festivities

Friday, 18th April 2014 19:17 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

It’s a long, Easter Weekend, and because of this, VG247 will be going dark from now through Monday.


The US celebrates a half day today leading into the weekend, and the UK is off until Tuesday.

We’re not as lucky in the US, but I won’t bitch too hard about it because I have Monday’s off anyway.

So, here’s hopping (see what I did there?) everyone enjoys this time off to: drink; go to mass; lash themselves; dress as a rabbit and do unspeakable things to your mate; overdose on chocolate; gorge on ham and deviled eggs; scour the pubs for ladies/gents; or whatever it is you do to celebrate.

Enjoy your long weekend, lovelies, and stay out of jail.

See you Tuesday.

    Something about Jesus being locked in a cave, dying, being resurrected and escaping the cave.

    Something along those lines.

    Over here we just use it as a holiday and give each other chocolate, gifts and money.

    @Game Hunter Kind of what Panthro said, it’s a holiday celebrating Jesus’ rise from death after 3 days. But most people just think its about the start of spring.

    Also, blazing it and praising it on Sunday :D

    Easter is the result of the Catholic Church co-opting a pagan holiday to attract converts.

    The Easter celebration, one that remembers the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, is properly celebrated during the Jewish festival of Passover; Jesus being the Passover lamb and all that.

    But that’s what Easter is today in mainstream Western life; a day to remember the resurrection that now is mostly about barbecues and chocolate bunnies.
