Maundy, maundy

These kids do seem to be enjoying themselves -- Easter madness in our small town.

I've always said there was nothing more fun than carrying a cross that signifies the struggle, beating, and crucifixion of Jesus down Main Street.

Object lessons do have their place, but I tend to draw the line at actually being nailed to a cross like is done in the Philippines every Easter. That punishment has been served, with the point being the debt has been paid by an inocent man.

Perhaps these youngsters followed up with a good ol' Easter egg hunt, and ate themselves sick from Cadbury crème eggs and little marshmallow peeps. Interesting story though.

Kinda reminds me of log drills in the military, except the logs were heavier and we didn't look so happy.
