UK: Easter quietly dropped from Easter eggs

It is a vanishing act worthy of the Easter bunny himself and just as mysterious.

Easter – the most important Christian festival of the year, celebrated by well over two billion people around the world – appears to be quietly disappearing: at least when it comes to eggs.

Growing numbers of chocolate eggs are on sale in the UK without any mention of the word “Easter” on the front of the packaging.

  • I can’t wait for the Halloween eggs to come out!

  • I thought it was the Easter Bunny’s Birthday.

    • Well yea, that too.

      Given the significance of Easter eggs, shouldn’t we have the Easter chicken instead of the Easter bunny?

    They don’t want to offend our new masters.

    They already are paying the jizzya as a halal licensing fee for all their chocolate.

    I think what is need is a new chocolate product, chocolate and bacon bits!

    So, what is Islam giving up to fit in with us? Oh, yea, nothing…

  • Ho Hum

    The Cadbury Eggs are also now Halal

    Today’s Toronto Star and Crescent in their continuing pandering to Muslims has very little coverage of Good Friday but makes sure in today’s Life section to have an article on how Muslims spend Good Friday.
    Of course there’s absolutely no mention of Purim – Jews don’t exist Starland.
