i had no idea how to spell mary magdalene... but at least i knew it!!!

One of my favourite (missing!) facts is that the calculation of the date of Easter is called 'computus' (Latin for 'computation'). You may want to add that one in!
Apr 18th, 2011 at 11:22 GMT
Great quiz! Very challenging I am definitely nominating this. I hope (if it gets published) that it will appear on the homepage either on Good Friday, Easter, or (as a last resort) Easter Monday. This will get picked... when it does just depends how difficult Sporcle wants to make it.
Apr 22nd, 2011 at 03:09 GMT
@Raynard- The last part of your comment kinda sounds like a threat. (But maybe it's just cuz you're holding that gun)
Either way--great quiz, Flick

For those wondering about the Polish tradition, google the term "dyngus day." You left out the best part, though, where the boys get to swat at the girls' legs with pussy willows. I understand it's still a big tradition in Buffalo, New York. Wonder if Hejman celebrates it? *wink*
Apr 22nd, 2011 at 07:51 GMT
Could you accept Eostre without the mark above the E?
Apr 22nd, 2011 at 12:17 GMT
@MRL: oops sorry about that, it is now accepted @MrChewypoo: thanx for the pick @BombaySapphire: I await Hejman's response with bated breath! *wink*
Apr 22nd, 2011 at 18:45 GMT
@BombaySapphire and Flick- I no longer live in Western New York and, sadly, the authorities in Central Ohio don't look kindly on strange 30-something men swatting ladies with pussy willows. I'll stick with just calling people a "dyngus" all day and listening to polka music. Well... maybe not so much of the latter. http://www.dyngusdaybuffalo.com/

Great quiz. Is that how inaugurated is spelled in the UK?
Apr 22nd, 2011 at 19:47 GMT
@googlebird: only if your typing is as dodgy as mine. Thanx.
Apr 22nd, 2011 at 20:23 GMT
I bet this quiz will be published this Sunday. Just a guess.
Apr 23rd, 2011 at 00:36 GMT
Pope question and Pysanka question need question marks.
Apr 23rd, 2011 at 00:43 GMT
Since you ask for the President, you should give the President's name primarily, and put the wife's name in parenthesis.

Anyone else try angel cake?
Apr 24th, 2011 at 04:58 GMT
Hahaha thats quite a politically correct way of saying "Happy Easter" on the top.
Apr 24th, 2011 at 05:26 GMT
You should accept "ave" as an abbreviation. I typed "5th ave," but it didn't count, and I didn't think to type the whole word.
Apr 24th, 2011 at 05:31 GMT
There is no evidence that the name Easter is derived from the name of the month of April. As question 2 correctly states, it comes from the name of the goddess Eostre (or Éastre).
Apr 24th, 2011 at 05:49 GMT
@GeoExpert: A couple of the question do overlap, but then again the theme is Easter ! Please note this quiz was written before the release of the one you mentioned @charolastra: In English and German the names: "Easter" and "Ostern" are related to ancient names for the month of April: Eostremonat and Ostaramanoth
Apr 24th, 2011 at 06:55 GMT
In regards to the tradition where boys pour water on girls, it is not unique to Poland. It occurs in many Eastern European countries.
Apr 24th, 2011 at 06:58 GMT
i tried hot cross buns for the traditional easter cakes - can i have a bonus please?
Apr 24th, 2011 at 07:10 GMT
@Cockroach: other relevant countries now added, thanx @beatrixkiddo: now added as a bonus lol.
Apr 24th, 2011 at 07:37 GMT
I answered "fruit cake" but it wasn't accepted. But the object in question is a fruit cake (see Wikipedia under the accepted answer).

I totally guessed that jesus wore purple, that japan exported easter lilies, That Dolly Madison inaugurated the white house easter egg roll ( Though I new Her favorite food was Oyster Ice cream), that the Easter day parade took place on fifth avenue and that Easter is associated with April. The only one I actually knew was that easter island belongs to chile.
Apr 24th, 2011 at 14:58 GMT
never heard of simnel cake, now I need to try and make it!
Apr 24th, 2011 at 15:00 GMT
Midmi its Mark 15: 20: and when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe..
Apr 24th, 2011 at 15:37 GMT
The name Easter does not come from either the name of a month or an Anglo-Saxon goddess, but from old Teutonic "Oester", meaning the East or the rising sun.

In a stunning case of celebrity tunnel vision I realized that I think of Easter Parade as an Ann miller movie.
Apr 24th, 2011 at 15:43 GMT
Great quiz, just wish you'd accept just Mary for Mary Magdalene. And that cake question really got me! I tried Carrot cake and angel cake but nothing I tried was ever right. Good quiz.

The Tuesday before Ash Wednesday is also known as Paczki Day in certain areas. Mmm, paczkis... :)
