Happy Easter!

Happy Easter from the Rover staff! Eat, drink and be merry for today the Lord of Hosts has triumphed over Darkness!

With that, I leave you with this Easter thought:

A blonde, a brunette and a redhead die and go to the Pearly Gates. They hadn't had the best of lives, but St. Peter decides to give them one more chance, so he asks them what the meaning of Easter is.

The brunette says, "Oh, is Easter the holiday where a fat man in a red suit gives presents to everyone?

St. Peter says no and sends her away.

Then it was the redhead's turn. She asks, "Is Easter the holiday where everyone dresses up in costumes to scare each other for candy?"

St. Peter says no and sends her away.

Finally it was the blonde's turn. "Is Easter the holiday that roughly coincides with the Jewish holiday of Passover, that is done in remembrance of Jesus being crucified and dying for our sins?"

St. Peter thought, "Finally, we're getting somewhere," and told her to continue.

The blonde finished, "And after he rose again on the third day, the stone was rolled away from his tomb, and if Jesus sees his shadow, that means there are six more weeks of Lent."
