Mr. Wednesday: "You've got your White, Jesuit-style Jesus, your Black African Jesus, your Mexican Jesus, and your swarthy Greek Jesus."
Shadow: "That's a lot of Jesus."
Mr. Wednesday: "Well there's a lot of need for Jesus, so there is a lot of Jesus."

Head Full of Snow

Jesus was resurrected on Ostara’s feast day.


Jesus has always been generous in sharing the Easter holiday with the ancient goddess. But the overly empathetic Son of God would be crushed to know that Ostara harbors some deeply buried resentment over the issue.[1]

Significance in narrativeEdit

Chapter Eight Edit

Jacquel calls Jesus a "lucky son of a virgin", but mentions that a friend of his saw him hitchhiking in Afghanistan, so it all depends on where you are. Jacquel also reveals to Shadow that Christmas isn't actually his birthday, but the birthday of Mithras.

Chapter Eleven Edit

In San Francisco, Wednesday and Shadow meet up with Easter where she is having an extravagant picnic in a park. She leaves behind her picnic free to feed anyone in the park and they head to a coffee house as Wednesday tries to sway her to his side in the upcoming war. Wednesday reminds Easter that she is only doing well because of bunnies and eggs and Jesus.

Physical appearance Edit
