Christian websites back up the historical truths about holidays..
I was reading another post about where easter came from. And one of the first posters said the origin was Ostara and was Pagan. Then the next dozen or so posts were all about how Easter is about Jesus and this woman was a nut bag... Then there was a post full of links - each one came from a different CHRISTIAN website and not a Pagan or religiously neutral one... And they all backed up the idea that Easter is Pagan - not christian. And what I liked best was that they were all mostly from the more main stream Christian faiths too, not the stuff people classify as cults (mormons or Jws... - and yes, I know they aren't cults, they are just seen that way by many)...
Anyways, do you ever feel a little vindicated when this happens? Like "That's what I said - and I'm right" kind of feeling? I love it!

First of all you are showing your immaturity. Arguing about how Easter is Pagan and not Christian is very trivial argument. When Rome conquered Jerusalem quite naturally they were going to be introduced to the pagan religion. There were sects in the Jewish community that either followed for political reasons or were radically against their religion. The whole point of Easter (the pagan holiday) was that Jesus rose from the grave and conquered death that day which has now made it HOLY! Thank You Jesus!!!!!
