  • It doesnt have anything to do with the bible, it just something fun for the kids just like Santa Claus on Christmas.

  • Well, you know the chocolate is the same color as the cross...(Eddie Izzard reference)

    Easter is a holiday made up of ancient Pagan traditions. The Christians like to claim it, saying it aligns with the day Jesus came back to life...

  • Easter as it is today is a mixture of 3 religions. The Pagans came first with their springtime fertility symbols, rabbits and eggs. The Jews came next with the Passover holiday. The Christians co-empted the Pagan springtime fertility symbols, and moved the date to that of the Jewish Passover, since according to the bible, Jesus was crucified on the day before Passover.
