Happy Easter

Happy Easter!

Here’s my Easter post from 2009; it’s only 12:30 AM on the West Coast, so maybe Google will update their splash page later today, but based on past experience, I’m not holding my breath:

Not surprisingly, I can reprint verbatim my Easter post from two years ago. And something tells me I won’t need to add an update later in the day correcting it:

Since this newly-born “holiday” lacks the historic significance of, say, World Water Day, Google, starting from zero, sits this one out with no special logo on its splash page. Again.

(At least Dogpile’s artists spent 15 minutes to dress up its mascot for the day. [And in 2010, so did Bing] And as Mark Steyn notes, sadly, some aspects of the season are becoming a bit too much for traditional churches)

And these days, some presidents as well.

More later today.
