* Easter – What comes to mind?
* Do you know that… EASTER is a religious holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But the term ‘Easter' is not of Christian origin!!! Let us turn to the dictionnaries to see what they say about the term “Easter”: Easter: \Eas'ter\, E['a]stre, a goddess of light or spring, in honor of whom a festival was celebrated in April
* The word EASTER comes from Eostre, the Anglo-Saxon name of a pagan goddess of Spring and fertility, whose festival was celebrated at the vernal equinox
* Spring or Vernal Equinox Equinox is Latin for “Equal Night” -when daytime equals nighttime
* When is Easter? It is on a different date each year. Always on a Sunday. Always in the Spring. Most people just check a calendar!!!
* How to calculate the date of Easter The festival of Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon which happens on or after March 21, which is also known as the Spring Equinox
* Why is it that English speaking Christians, still use the name of a pagan goddess Eastre to refer to this sacred event??? In many languages, the term used for the events surrounding Jesus' death and resurrection is called “Pesach” or “Passover”.
