THE SUNDAY POST - EASTER CHOCOLATE EDITION


Hope all of your are having a wonderful extended weekend, Easter for me is an excuse to buy very expensive chocolate, no regrets right? Not much news this weekend in regards to World of Tanks, though that is pretty normal as most the development and community teams are off having their own fun.

Light tanks have been receiving some negative feedback the past week, and for good reason. Lets hope Wargaming see sense and make some positive changes and calm the community worries. The release date for 9.18 fast approaches, so there really is not much time should they decide to implement changes - although they could postpone the patch.

Anyway - back to Easter, did you know that it was originally a Pagan festival? well today you learned. Before we end, if any of you have a local Hotel Chocolat, I highly recommend them; by far one of the best chocolatiers in Europe, though the luxury comes at a premium. Still, give them a visit, even if it's just to stare. I'll leave you with a short paragraph explaining the origins of easter:

All the fun things about Easter are pagan. Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare. Exchange of eggs is an ancient custom, celebrated by many cultures. Hot cross buns are very ancient too. In the Old Testament we see the Israelites baking sweet buns for an idol, and religious leaders trying to put a stop to it. The early church clergy also tried to put a stop to sacred cakes being baked at Easter. In the end, in the face of defiant cake-baking pagan women, they gave up and blessed the cake instead - source, Guardian.co.uk.
