Kids Say the Darndest Things - Blessed Pascha!

As kids are concerned, you couldn't find a cuter pair than the "Fuller twins" (I'm not biased - if ya don't believe me, just ask our Mama)!

I have a very distinct memory from my childhood, and luckily its an experience of my youth while in Church.  In line during the Dismissal, we kept seeing and hearing a dialogue between each person with our priest - the same dialogue.  We turned to ask our mom what they were saying.  She expained that the priest was saying, "Christ is Risen" and we should respond back with, "Truly He is Risen."

Obviously, as children we didn't know what those sayings meant, but everyone was doing it and what kid wants to be left out of all the fun?  It was our turn in line, and much to our delight, he was handing out a gift to everyone in line - a red egg (real egg)!

He handed us each an egg, as he proclaimed, "Christ is Risen!"  And our reply, apparently not what everyone else was saying (Truly He is Risen), but something much more to our liking as a child.  My sister and I loudly exclaimed:  "Truly He eats raisins!"

Everyone had a nice laugh.  My sister and I continued to say to one another and others:
"Christ eats raisins!" "Truly He eats raisins!"
