[Excerpted from a longer conversation about my general discomfort with Easter and how any of that relates to chocolate Easter eggs. Which is, you know, not at all.]
Well, you know that the Easter Bunny isn’t really part of the Easter story, as celebrated by people who believe in God, right?
Oh. What is the original Easter story?
Well, it’s part of the Christian tradition – it’s a story told by all the Christian religions. It’s a story about a man who they believed was the Son of God and how he died and then rose from the dead.
That’s ok. I know that zombies don’t really exist. [Beat.] I still like zombies, just not the religious ones.
