Origins of Easter: all together, now

I’ve bundled all twelve “little known fun facts” sequentially into a single document and uploaded it to my other website. Please feel free to print out and read at your leisure. (If anyone would prefer to read it in MS Word, I’ll be happy to send it as an e-mail attachment.)

Someone asked if I will be issuing a “Cliff Notes” version. My reply: these are the Cliff Notes!

My only addition consisted of two sentences at the end of the introduction: “Finally, please note that I have made little effort to achieve internal consistency here. How the ‘facts’ enumerated might or might not be built into a systematic argument I leave to the reader’s imagination.” Is that a great cop out, or what?!

Oh, and by the way: Happy Easter!
