A Twitter account purporting to be Ryan Gosling is responsible for hiding 200 Gosling-themed eggs around New York City. Although it's doubtful that this is actually the actor's doing — he's never been that big on Twitter himself — it still feels like a delightful Easter miracle. Besides, if he's saving people from speeding cars, who's to say he's not helping everyone get in the holiday spirit with a citywide Easter egg hunt?
Kids looking forward to the annual Easter egg hunt in Old Colorado City will be disappointed this year: the popular event has been canceled. Sure, they can still celebrate the Jesus aspects of the holiday, but gone is the thrill of searching for colored eggs to earn prizes and candy. And it's not even the children's fault.
Conservative pundits have been known to give President Obama crap for not going to church. It's part of why, if you're, say, Byron York, the president should only blame himself for the millions of morons who believe he's a Muslim. But when Obama does go to church, as he and his family did on Easter Sunday, he still ends up in a multi-pronged scandal. He didn't "do" Easter correctly.

Sunday is Easter, which means that today's the last day when you can go to the drug store and find a sprawling selection of the seasonal sweets that only Jesus' resurrection brings.

Now is your time to head to CVS and get a bag or box of your candy of choice, because after tomorrow the "Easter Bunny" will have bought up all the goodies. But before you go for that sugar rush, let's take a look at what your selection means. [Photo above via Flickr]
"Jesus must be spinning in his empty grave!" That's how Stephen Colbert introduced his outrage on tonight's Report while discussing the secular war on Easter. For Colbert, the prospect of a non-religious "Spring Egg Hunt" took things too far, so he decided to explain how the Bible itself calls for eggs on the holiday.
Shocked at the behavior of the fellow who brought you all those tasty Cadbury Creme Eggs? Well, at least he's not tarring and feathing law enforcement vehicles like the other folks in this video!
Some very bored soul made a very cool Cadbury Creme Egg smashing machine. His roommates must be such patient people.
I tuned into "The McLaughlin Group" this morning all giddy about the prospect of panelist and Chicago Tribune writer Clarence Page (who is black) getting into a sweet shout-off with MSNBC talker Patrick Buchanan over Buchanan's recent column calling for blacks to show some "gratitude" for the way America has treated them. But moderator John McLaughlin threw me a Christian curveball for Easter, asking his guests, "Would Jesus support the death penalty?"
