Lamb or Ham?

Food shopping for Easter dinner turned into a bit of a hunt. There were hams galore, but no lamb to be found. Finally I checked in the imported and exotic meat section and found a nice leg of lamb...from Australia. There were only a few there, but I found what I needed. Maybe I just haven't noticed the dearth of lamb before, or maybe it's a Long Island thing, but we have always had lamb for Easter. When did ham come onto the scene? I mean, doesn't lamb tie in with the Easter theme?

Hey, our Polish friends will bring their kielbasa and perogies (sp?) to church to be blessed soon. No lamb there, either.
