I know this is the off-topics forum and all, but I have to wonder if "about my pet" doesn't fall under the "let me tell you about what color socks I am wearing today" rule...

Oh, they're so cute! I once had the chance to pet newborns like those and you just made me remember how cute they were. ^^

What's the connection between goats and Easter?

Well, in the Greek Orthodox tradition -- lamb is served at Easter, breaking the Paschal fast.

The traditional Sunday roast of lamb is not an unusual way to celebrate Easter Sunday here among Western Christians either. In India mutton refers to goat meat and not (older) sheep meat as it does here and, I believe, in the USA but they are not big on Easter.

So the connection between goats and Easter remains unclear.

So the connection between goats and Easter still remains unclear.

Does that help?

No connection, I was just trying to give heads up that this Easter I'm coming over and planning to eat Felix and M&M. It's going to be so good friday that it hurts :wink:

Dude, you just *said* "lots of people eat lamb for Easter." --

THAT is the connection.
