    Can somebody explain what easter is about, And easter eggs ? chocolate ones, I mean they wasnt about 2000 years ago, I remember it has something to do with Jesus coming back from the dead, not too easy that one, Plus can it really really happen ?, If so how come it hasnt happened since ?

    It's a pagan ritual Reg. The egg symbol is all about rebirth and it coincides with spring. Christianity nicked it and replaced it with their Passion/Crucifixion/Resurrection doodah. Most major Christian festivals were slapped on top of older pagan festivals...made it easier for the plebs (us) to accept Christianity.

    Trust you to make a yoke of it.

    You ask a serious question and all you get is egg on your face.
