    Shamefully I only got nine. I will admit that I mistook the name of golgotha.

    I got 9 correct but missed "Why do we have the Easter bunny?" which is really being a dumb bunny on my part in retrospect. 😞




    There. I'm over it. 😀

    I got nine 🙁, although I dispute it. For the first question, I said 'C. Hebrew.'
    I'm too used to calling it the Paschal Triduum.

    Father, forgive me......

    Also, I guessed about the symbolic significance of 'eggs,' but the answer seemed
    intuitive.

    You're the man, Ivanhoe.

    I got 10/10! Although I wouldn't have had a clue on a couple of questions if it hadn't been so easy to eliminate the other choices.

    Ivanhoe where in the Bible does it say not to eat meat on Fridays?

    And why would Christian bring in pagen rabbits, was it to please men and not God or something?

    That is because there is no where that it says that so why would Catholics add that to the rules of there Church?

    Alas not perfect but the Holy Land beckons.
    I failed on Golgotha.

    But this quiz reminds of something I’ve always found strange: Why is it calle Good Friday. In my native tongue its called ”Long Friday” and seems more fitting.
    Somebody will know this ?

    It is a way of expressing respect for Jesus' Death on the Cross.
