Easter

This Sunday is "Easter" when we celebrate Bunnies, eggs, and the vicarious atonement (limited or unlimited depending on what flavor you subscribe to) of our particular "Savior"

But were it not for an interesting turn in history we could have been celebrating other Saviors, all who predated the christian one...lets look at a few shall we?.......
