Holiday Hilarity

Spring is such a holiday filled time of year, what with Ostara, Easter, Passover, Nowruz, and all the others. I find that when we experience holidays besides all the deep meaning, pageantry, celebration, behind all that there are always an occasion or two for having a whole lot of fun.

Whether the fun involves marshmallows shaped like chicks and bunnies: The Peeps Show is really amazing this year.

Or a new social-networking twist on a very very old tradition: A Facebook Haggadah. No, really.

And then there is always the trying to explain one's holiday to someone from another culture unintended comdedy: "Excuse me, but what's an Easter?" You just can't beat David Sedaris for holiday hilarity.
