Kage Baker always said: Χριστός ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!
To which I always replied: He is risen indeed!
Kage was a Christian. I’m not. But Resurrection is a universal hope, and no one with any senses at all can deny the leaping green return to life of the Spring time Earth. Young squirrels are running along the porch railing, leaping in and and out of the mulberry tree. Mockingbirds are singing hymns and carillions in the wisteria. Every plant in the garden is in bloom and promising fruit.
I even have a chocolate rabbit.
Happy Easter to all of you, and the blessing of the green god of your choice on your hearts.
