Mother’s Day in America: A History

Thanks to History.com for this fascinating history of Mother’s Day in America and around the world. Mother’s Day: Historical Precursors Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” Once a major tradition in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe, this celebration fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent and was originally seen as a time when the faithful would return to their “mother […]

A “Mom” poem…of sorts.

How we feel about Mom through the years.   At 6Yrs, “Mommy, I love you.” At 10 Yrs, “Mom, whatever.” At 16, “My Mom is soooo annoying.” At 18, “I wanna leave this house.” At 25, “Mom, you were so right.” At 30, “I wanna go to Mom’s house.” At 50, “I don’t wanna lose you, Mom.” At 70, “I’d give up everything for one more day with my Mom.”   Hat/Tip Matt.    

Artists tell Easter story in shipping containers

South Shields, a coastal town in the northeastern part of Britain on the River Tyne, is celebrating Easter a bit differently this year. Artists and folks from the local community are turning heads with their use of shipping containers to commemorate the Passion of the Christ on Good Friday.   So Happy Easter to all our loyal CH 2.0 readers, sit back and enjoy this video.  

The Easter Bunny Hates You: The Prequel 2014

Yesterday, I ran a shocking and alarming story regarding the violent nature of the Easter Bunny. Following that post, I was troubled by the thought, “why?”  Why is the Easter Bunny so incredibly violent? Why has he lashed out at humanity?  And, come to think of it, where did he learn his advanced fighting skills? Well, the crack investigative team at the CH 2.0 took the challenge, and set out to answer these questions.  We have found a video that explains it.  Here it is… I strongly recommend that you avoid contact with the Easter Bunny at all costs.   If […]

Easter 2014: He is Risen!

Matthew 28:1-7 (New American Standard) Jesus Is Risen! 1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. 5 The angel said to the women, “Do […]

The Horrible Truth Caught on Video: The Easter Bunny Hates You 2014

We all think of the Easter Bunny as the kind woodland critter that hides candy for kiddos every Easter.  However, a shocking video has surfaced that will cause many to change their perception of the notorious Easter character. It’s awful to see a national icon go bad. I can only imagine what drove the normally docile Easter Bunny to such extremes.

Friday Frivolity: The Lament of the Chocolate Bunnies

Easter approaches, and as we get ready to celebrate, untold millions of chocolate bunnies are about to meet their end.   Here is a pic that I have titled, The Lament of the Chocolate Bunnies. Please, just remember the chocolate bunnies, won’t you?

New Years Eve in Times Square Live Feed!

We have something that I have never tried before; the live feed of the Times Square New Years Eve celebration… I’ll be posting some thoughts on the year that was later, so stay tuned for more! Enjoy!

NORAD Tracks Santa: 2013

For over five decades, NORAD has tracked Santa for children all over the US, and now, the world. For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight. The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.” The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south […]

Happy Thanksgiving? A Message From the Turkey Liberation Army

OK, I know it’s a couple days off, but what the heck? Here is some good stuff from Manhattan Infidel!- Matt Free the Turkeys! As Thanksgiving approaches and millions of Americans prepare to travel to visit their loved ones it is time to ask the all-important question:  Thanksgiving, why? In keeping with Manhattan Infidel’s official policy of what happens in the crawl space stays in the crawl space providing a forum for diverse viewpoints I now present  the Turkey Liberation Army’s take on this holiday. To get this scoop I was blindfolded and driven to a turkey “farm” outside the […]

The Story of the First Thanksgiving 2013

This is the annual CH 2.0 re-telling of the true story of the first Thanksgiving. I heard  this story years ago, so I thought I’d post it. The official story has the pilgrims boarding the Mayflower, coming to America and establishing the Plymouth colony in the winter of 1620-21. This first winter is hard, and half the colonists die. But the survivors are hard working and tenacious, and they learn new farming techniques from the Indians. The harvest of 1621 is bountiful. The Pilgrims hold a celebration, and give thanks to God. They are grateful for the wonderful new abundant land He […]

Veterans Day: 2013

Veterans should hold a place in our society that is special. I know that they hold a place in my heart. My father served in WWII with the Marines in the first invasion of Okinawa. He was 150 miles from the Japanese mainland when for the first time in his life he saw a mushroom cloud. Dad told me that his unit had already received orders to go the China coast in an effort to surround Japan. Thank God he did not have to go. My younger brother served in the Navy during the first Gulf War. He was on […]

Happy Flag Day, America!

usa as flag

Here, in it’s entirety is Ronald Reagan’s June 14, 1986 weekly radio address. My fellow Americans: “Today we celebrate Flag Day, the birthday of our Stars and Stripes. As we think back over the history of our nation’s flag, we remember that the story of its early years was often one of hardship and trials, sometimes a fight for simple survival. Such is the story behind our Star-Spangled Banner. It was 2 years into the War of 1812, and America seemed to be teetering on the edge of defeat. The British had already taken our Capital and burned the White […]

Valentine’s Day Special Post: Sweet Tart Evolution Explained

Everyone loves Sweet Tarts; those heart shaped candies with the special printed message.  However, the printed messages have changed over the years.  The Atlantic has a listing of defunct Sweet Tart messages… The Sweetheart is 147 years old. But not all of its cute little sayings have enjoyed quite the same sesquicentennial longevity. The folks from NECCO, the confectionery company that sells 4 million pounds of their traditional heart-shaped candies in the 6 weeks before Valentine’s Day, sent me the full list of their most notable retired sayings.

Happy Year 2013! We’re in Trouble!

I’d like to take the moment to wish everyone a Happy New Year.  However, I might want to add that my wish is by no means a guarantee.  I fear that 2013 is going to be a terrible year, and it will result in hardships of all sorts.  Here are some of my reasons… 1.  Fiscal Cliff jumping:  It appears that we are going to go off  the “fiscal cliff.”  What does that mean?  It means that Obama’s negotiating position was “give me exactly what I want, and nothing less.”  The members of the stupid party, however, made many concessions, […]
