“Whatever you do, work at it with
all your heart…”
–Paul the Apostle
Easter is the No. 2 top-selling candy holiday (behind Halloween) according to the National Confectioners Association. Each day, in preparation for the holiday, candy makers produce 5 million marshmallow chicks and bunnies. Each year, they produce 90 million chocolate bunnies and 16 billion jelly beans.
The reason the date of the celebration changes each year dates back to 325 A.D. It was set under the Roman emperor Constantine as the first Sunday after a full moon following the Spring equinox (that’s right… a full moon and an equinox). That makes it between March 22 and April 25 every year.
Forget the mainstream Hollywood Halloween movies (not that there is anything wrong with mainstream Hollywood films compared to other schools of industry).
Invented in 1999 by a group of Australians, the Movember Foundation fights to raise awareness and funds for a variety of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer. The word “Movember” is a combination of “Moustache” and “November”; growing a moustache during November is essentially the trademark symbol of the group.
GEB reader ‘Damien’ is a participant in the event, and decide to help give it a bit of promotion. Similar to our Halloween tradition of turning Google Earth into a pumpkin, Damien turned the earth in a giant smiley face with a moustache!
