Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. :twisted: Does anyone else find Easter terribly outdated?
    While I'm happy to have some time off work, I just find the whole "celebration" just so 2nd millennium.
     
  2. Not outdated. A bit like Christmas in that people seems to forget the real reason it is celebrated. Not to enter into any religious topic....
     
  3. It's Easter?

    I suppose my calendar isn't a christian one.
     
  4. You know, the time we all eat rabbit eggs.
     
  5. YOU WHAT????

    Two free days off work. I havent forgot what easter is about.
    :wink:
     
  6. People seem to forget the true meaning of Easter.

    Easter Sunday is a day for quiet reflection followed by some DIY and then off to buy a new sofa as there's a sale on.

    Mind you, when isn't there a sale on?
     
  7. Not in Aus mate - DIY shops are closed on Good Friday - bloody sacrilege if you ask me.
    Glad of the 2 days off though :)
     
  8. Easter, as I recall from early bible classes, is a celebration of when they killed the Baby Jesus by pinning to him to some timber. How barbaric was that? He was only 4 months old after all (3 months and a half some years).

    And how such an infant could roll away such a big stone is a true miracle. I think Mary Queen of Scots helped out, to be honest.
     
  9. And IIRC, in Germany, the music will be switched off at midnight on Saturday night as Easter Sunday is a religious holiday and you're not allowed to bop until you drop on those days.

    That confused a few in that shitehole of a pad's pub (?) on the Hakedahl estate in Detmold.

    1. Battlefield Tours

    No it isn't, the DIY is followed by a visit to A&E.
     
  12. Everything's closed, even the pubs. This mob are far more pious than I expected.
    Even the pubs I say - what else are bank holidays for?
     
  13. Mr_Deputy said:
    You sick b@stard! That's not in the spirit of Easter.
     
  14. Not in my family!

    Mr_Deputy: Are you from Norfolk?



    Jesus walks into a hotel at Easter, puts some planks and nails on the reception desk and says: "Can you put me up for the night?"


    Coat on, walking out the door!
     
  15. .... or the Forest of Dean
