Happy Easter!

For those of an Easter-ish persuasion, I wish you a very Happy Easter.

A bit of trivia: one Greek word for "fish" is "ιχθύς" (ichthys/ichthus); the fish was an early Christian symbol, and the word served as an acronym. As Wikipedia notes:

ΙΧΘΥΣ (Ichthus) is a backronym/acrostic for "Ίησοῦς Χριστός, Θεοῦ Υἱός, Σωτήρ," (Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr), which translates into English as "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour."
