Easter Selfie Sunday

Have you ever wondered why Easter is called Easter? We did and asked, and found out it came from the Venerable Bede. Bede was an English Benedictine monk at the monastery of St. Peter and its companion monastery of St. Paul in the Kingdom of Northumbria of the Angles. Bede wrote that the month in which English Christians were celebrating the resurrection of Jesus had been called Eosturmonath in Old English, referring to a goddess named Eostre. And even though Christians had begun affirming the Christian meaning of the celebration, they continued to use the name of the goddess to designate the season.

Bede was so influential for later Christians that the name stuck, and hence Easter remains the name by which the English, Germans and Americans refer to the festival of Jesus’ resurrection.

But we digress, it is SPRINGING here and we are GLAD!

So is Jo Jo!


Here is Ninja in the shed, hes trying out the lawn mower.


And here is ME! I am scratching my back – rolling on the sidewalk!

    Thank you for that refresher on the name of Easter, Marv… I had learned it at school. But that was last century and the old memory cells ain’t what they could be!

    You all look so content and happy with the arrival of spring. Sending Love and Blessings to you all the way from over here. Hugs wags and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Marv that is a very cool story about why Easter is named Easter. Did not know that or if we did, Mom is so old she’s forgotten (tee hee). Anyway, we hope all of you have a wonderful Easter! Looks like Spring has sprung there and we hope all of you are well and happy.

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom

  6. Wow, such fun selfies this week!

    Love seeing Ninja taking charge of the lawn mower.
    Wish we had a ride on here…its about 10miles of walking to get our acre mowed with the self propelled one we have…but thankfully it IS a self propelled!

    Interesting Easter facts:)

    Ya’ll stay well and safe! (So far we are…)

  7. If Ninja showed up on Dad’s lawnmower I don’t think any grass would get mowed, ’cause he’d tell Mom and then she’d want to pet and play with Ninja. So would I. Say Marv, did the Easter Bunny offer to give you a ride on his cycle? Tummy tickles and cheek nuzzles.


  8. Thank you for joining us for Easter Sunday selfies. You all look so happy to be outside. It has been a dismal day here, and is raining very hard now. No Easter goodies for us or the humans (which is a first); though, we did get our usual treats at 11 a.m., and we know we’ll get our 11 p.m. ones as well. We hope the “sads” have started to diminish some for all of you. Happy hippity hoppity Easter, dear friends. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer


  9. I is good to see you getting some nice weather. I know you had a lot of snow and other cold stuff. Enjoy!

    Happy Easter and it is lovely to see you all Marv 🙂


  10. Cool! I thought the name Easter came from Pagans since so many Christian traditions started with the Pagans like Easter eggs and May poles and Christmas trees. You guys sure like being outdoors. Happy belated Easter!


  11. All your Selfies are beautiful and very eggful, sweet furriends. We hope you had a wonderful Easter. It’s a beautiful story about the Goddess Ostara (that’s how we call her in our Country)💗Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Wednesday. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞
