Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

This next Sunday is Easter, when the Great Rabbit was resurrected from a cave in the Middle East and gave all his followers eggs filled with pocket change, candy and sometimes balled-up dollar bills. At least that's what heathen pop culture has taught us as opposed to the true story, that whole dead Jesus thing.

Easter is a time for frilly pastel clothing, half-melted chocolate, children looking for hidden eggs next to rusty machinery in the backyard, and scrambling to find a church with free coffee in the lobby to take the family to.

We found a few vintage Easter cards in our grandparents' house just this past weekend and we thought we would scan them into the computer to show you. Who knew that baby chickens and rabbits had such foul mouths?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
