Friday Night Think Tank: Good Friday To You

Friday Night Think Tank: Good Friday To You! | The Return of the Modern PhilosopherHappy Good Friday, Modern Philosophers!  I hope you managed to upgrade and make your Friday great.

Even though Easter is just two days away, we had to contend with an ice storm this morning.  Looks like Peter Cottontail might be slipping and sliding down the Bunny Trail in Maine this year.

The best thing about this Good Friday is that the work week is now over, and I can ease into a quiet, relaxing weekend.  Hopefully, it will end with a giant basket of candy delivered to me by the Easter Bunny.

Why don’t we resurrect this weekend with a trip out to the Think Tank?  I’ve asked the interns to hide Easter Eggs all over the place, so this week’s session might be even more fun than usual.

Meet you out there!

This week’s topic: Do you have any special Easter traditions?

Unfortunately, I’m a little too old for the Easter Bunny to visit The House on the Hill, and there’s no way I’m putting on my Sunday best and going to church.  So I guess it’s time for me to come up with a new Easter tradition.

I almost bought some Easter candy at the grocery store tonight, but I fought the urge.  I’m back to working out and eating better, and I simply cannot allow a giant rabbit with an endless supply of chocolate to knock me off the wagon.

Be good, Easter Bunny! Stop trying to tempt me with your endless supply of candy!Be good, Easter Bunny!

Then the Deep Thoughts started flowing, and I realized that I might not have any Easter traditions.

This saddened me.  As a boy, I wasn’t a big fan of having religion shoved down my throat, but I did enjoy the holidays that made the force feeding a little more tolerable.

Easter is a great holiday when you’re a kid.  Who doesn’t love all that candy and the week off from school?

As I pouted over the fact that the Easter Parade had marched on without me, I suddenly remembered that I did still have an Easter tradition.  It’s a little weird, but it’s perfectly mine.

Every week leading up to Easter for the past three years, I’ve written a series of silly Easter blog posts to amuse you.

This year, I’ve written about the Easter Bunny being hospitalized after laying too many Easter Eggs, Donald Trump being memorialized in Easter Baskets in chocolate form, and Viagra’s colorful Easter pill.

Then today, my special Easter post was published on The Good Men Project (more about that later in a separate post).

So spoofing the Easter Bunny’s big day in blog posts is my new Easter tradition.  I’m hopping up and down in joy over that discovery.

What’s your Easter tradition?

Your new Easter tradition can be to follow me on Pinterest…

    I still appreciate the pretty dresses, hats, purses and gloves accompanying the nice Easter basket decorated with ribbons and candy inside! So, I guess I’m blessed to have fond memories of that stuff. My new Easter tradition is work! 🙂

  2. Happy Easter, Austin. ‘o)

  3. I don’t have a faith so we don’t really celebrate Easter other than the food really. We eat lamb and buy each other Easter eggs… Happy Easter!
