One day just before Easter Eddie pulled into the supermarket car park. His wife Brenda had picked up a few things and was waiting for him. “Hi, honey,” Eddie cheerfully said as Brenda got into the car. “How was your day? “I can’t believe it,” Brenda said. “It looks like our bank is in trouble.” “What?” Eddie asked. “It’s closing at the end of the week,” Brenda replied. That can’t be right,” Eddie said. “It’s a national bank!” “Well it’s true,” Brenda came back. “I have seen the sign in the window.” “What sign?” Eddie asked. “Drive by the bank and you’ll see,” Brenda replied. Eddie headed in the direction of the bank. “Right there,” Brenda said as they drove by the bank. “See the sign? It says, ‘We Will Be Closed for Good Friday!’ ”

Young Ernie and his family were invited to have Easter Sunday lunch at his grandmother’s house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When Ernie received his plate he started eating straight away. ‘Ernie, wait until we say grace,’ demanded his father. ‘I don’t have to,’ the five year old replied. ‘Of course you do, Ernest,’ his mother insisted rather forcefully. ‘We always say a prayer before eating at our house.’ ‘That’s at our house,’ Ernie explained, ‘but this is Grandma’s house, and she knows how to cook.’
