Apparently Easter is coming up soon. Next weekend, judging by an email I just received from a friend in New Zealand. Easter usually manages to just slip by unnoticed. I guess it’s a bit too macabre for young, trendy Chinese people to use as an excuse for a party. “Hey everybody, today is the anniversary of Jesus’ death! Let’s have a party!” Doesn’t quite work, does it? “Hey everybody, today is the anniversary of Jesus’ resurrection!” “What’s resurrection? Forget it, got work tomorrow.” Yeah, not much of a party festival. And being determined by some old lunar calendar that is only used to find Easter makes it even harder to remember. Most years I think, ummm, Easter should be coming up soon, shouldn’t it? Oh! It’s already been and gone! Oh well, next year….
