The mistaken painter

East­er is the time for tra­di­tion. Two days of fam­ily­ship, going to the church, lis­ten­ing to that Jesus come­back tour, stand­ing round the East­er fire and search­ing for the East­er bun­ny.
But where­as Christ­mas attracts peo­ple with the giv­ing and get­ting gifts game, East­er is rather restrained. The thought East­er stands for is much more ide­al­is­tic. It might be even hard­er to wor­ship that thought, which could be the Pope’s rea­son to ask for peace every year.
So why not break up with tra­di­tions if new rit­u­als turn out to rep­re­sent your wor­ship much bet­ter? East­er seems to stand for some­thing good, so not replac­ing it with any­thing wouldn’t be very ratio­nal.
This must have been Schlen­za­lot’s inten­tion before stat­ing:
[Just coloured eggs (tes­ti­cles?). Colour’s itch­ing a bit.]
