Still, shame they (whoever 'they' are) aren't sure of any specific date in relation to this. Easter is to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, right? But back then, didn't they only have ten months, instead of twelve? Bet they've got the date wrong. ;)

Don't forgot to thank the Goddess Ishtar, sense this is Her day. Everything about Easter is Pagan in origin.

Happy easter everyone. Nothing wrong with being 18 and having a chocolate egg Granyaski. I myself, am 24, and I have 2 of them! :D

It's called "indulgence". If you don't "indulge" yourself every once in a while, well, then you might aswell be dead inside.

Where did the idea of Easter eggs and Easter bunnies come from anyway? As far as I know, Easter was something to do with Jesus, wasn't it?

Where did the idea of Easter eggs and Easter bunnies come from anyway? As far as I know, Easter was something to do with Jesus, wasn't it?

nope Easter is pagan. Nothing to do with Christ in anyway shape or form!

“EASTER: A HIDDEN DECEPTION” by Pastor Ray Hagins (Lecture given 4/15/01) When was the last time you went to your public library, obtained one of the leading encyclopedias or histories, and studied an article on the subject of Easter? If you’re like the average person, the answer is probably “never.” Millions of sincere, church-going, people who profess being Christians excitedly arise in the pitch-black hours well before dawn on Easter Sunday morning, hustle the kids out of bed, enjoy a quick breakfast, and bundle into the car for a drive to a nearby mountaintop, outdoor bowl, huge cathedral, or small countryside church. They are going to an “Easter sunrise service.” At the precise moment of sunrise, the priest or minister may likely turn toward the east, extending both hands in a supplicatory gesture, heralding the dawn of “Easter Sunday,” and ask all of the audience to pray as they face the rising sun in the east. The real tragedy is that these millions of people genuinely believe that they have gathered together to commemorate the anniversary of the precise moment that a supposed man named “Jesus Christ” rose from the dead! They genuinely and sincerely believe that they are celebrating the resurrection. DO YOU REMEMBER EASTER (AS A CHILD)? Surely you remember the seriousness AND the fun of “Easter time?” The projects you were given in the first elementary years of school, fashioning little decorated baskets of paper and decorating them with paper straw, and jelly beans shaped like “Easter eggs.” As a child, you probably dyed eggs; participated in “Easter egg hunts;” ate little “chocolate bunnies,” and perhaps even participated in passion plays, concerts, parades, etc. Certainly you recall seeing old motion picture news reports or television coverage of the famous “Easter Parade” in New York City. It’s the custom! And who dares to question custom??? WHAT DOES EASTER MEAN? What is Easter”? Is it the opposite of “Wester”? Does it have something to do with one of the points of the compass, or the Far East? (According to The Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th Edition) “Easter: The annual festival observed throughout Christendom in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The name Easter (Ger. Ostern), like the names of the days of the week, is a survival from old Euro-pagan mythology and is derived from Eostre, or Ostara, the Anglo Saxon goddess of spring, to whom the month corresponding to our April was dedicated. In Acts 12:4 of the King James Version of the bible, the term “pascha” is erroneously translated “Easter.” The term means Passover, not “Easter,” and is so rendered by all modern English translations. (Now, notice what an American high school level encyclopedia has to say)… “Easter is a Christian (Euro-pagan) festival that celebrates the resurrection (of a Euro-pagan fabricated deity named) “Jesus Christ.” It is the most important holy day of the year (Euro-pagan religion called “Christianity.”) Its name comes from Eostre, the (Euro-pagan, Anglo Saxon) goddess of spring, or from the (Euro-pagan) festival of spring, Eostar [pronounced “Easter”]. In the World Book Encyclopedia (placed in elementary schools), under the article “Easter,” it says, “Christians celebrate Easter with great rejoicing. In many areas, children collect candy and chocolate bunnies, and hunt colorful Easter eggs. Many people buy new spring clothes to wear to church on Easter.” THE ORIGIN OF EASTER IS MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE? The Old Testament mentions the Euro-pagan goddess from which the festival of Easter is derived. This goddess was the goddess of fertility and sexual lust, known as Ashtaroth (also known as the “goddess of the moon” or the “Queen of heaven”) (Judges 2:11-13). Each spring, Euro-pagans would set up phallic poles called Asherim (plural of Asherah) under trees on high hills and celebrate their fertility festival with unbridled sexual perversion. In Exodus 34:13-16, the Israelites were commanded to destroy the groves (Asherah poles). The worship of the upright penis, or phallic symbols, was closely associated with the worship of other forms of the procreation of life (i.e., the tekhenu). The whole festival at springtime had to do with the warming rays of the sun and hastening spring, when new life would once again spring forth. The Euro-pagans used the symbols of eggs, which they worshiped as a miraculous source (sperm) of life; and rabbits, as the most rapidly procreating domestic animal; and made sacrifice to the goddess of the moon “queen of heaven” (Ashtaroth), who was viewed as the goddess of sex and fertility. The sacred texts calls this activity idolatry, and called these ceremonies of these Euro-pagans “great abominations!” This worship was attended with lascivious (unbridled lust, outrageousness, excessive and shameless sexual activity) sex rites. In consequence the egg came to be used as the most fitting symbol of this nature worship. The Euro-pagans also believed that Eostre was hatched from a large egg which fell down from heaven. European women would colorfully paint their naked bodies and run into the forest and hide. The men would hunt for them and upon finding them would engage in these lascivious sexual acts. Hence we have what is called today the “Easter egg hunt.” Read Ezekiel 8! The sun is in the east at its rising! This is a sunrise service, a Euro-pagan, idolatrous worshiping of the rising sun. “But, so what?” some will ask. “What’s the big deal?” some may complain. Are we to take away such innocent-appearing things as cute little chicks, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and dyed eggs; the excited, happy looks on the faces of our children as they search about for hidden Easter eggs? Some say, “We’re not doing it with all of these pagan things in mind. We’re doing it as a ‘Christian’ ceremony and it is only something to get the children to look forward to Easter!” The observance and celebration of Easter is Christianized Paganism. (See verses 17, 18). In Afrika, for many thousands of years, when the sun returned in the spring of the year, bringing new life and causing vegetation to revive, a great feast of rejoicing was held. They would give praise and honor to The Almighty, Self-Sustaining One for his SUN, the giver of life. Afrikans would dress themselves with beautiful flowers and plants and engage in parade, celebration and gorgeous display. Europeans who came into Afrika and witnessed this ancient Afrikan custom tried to copy it without understanding the significance behind it and created a Euro-paganized version of worshipping of the Sun. THE DECREE OF EASTER FROM THE COUNCIL OF NICÆA (A.D. 325). (The Catholic Encyclopedia) The emperor Constantine, writing to the churches after the council of Nicæa, exhorts them to adopt its conclusions and says among other things: “At this meeting the question concerning the most holy day of Easter was discussed, and it was resolved by the judgment of all present that this feast ought to be kept by all and in every place on one and the same day. First of all, it appeared an unworthy thing that in the celebration of this most holy feast we should follow the practice of the Jews, who have impiously defiled their hands with enormous sin, for we have received from our Savior a different way and I myself have undertaken that this decision should meet with your approval in the hope that your wisdoms will gladly admit that practice which is observed at once in the city of Rome and in Africa, throughout Italy and Egypt with entire unity of judgment.” Remember, these lengthy quotations are from “The Catholic Encyclopedia!” Now, under the article “Councils” in The Catholic Encyclopedia, notice one of the most important purposes for the Council of Nicæa: “The First Ecumenical, or Council of Nicæa (325) lasted two months and twelve days. Three hundred and eighteen bishops were present. Hosius, Bishop of Cordova, assisted as legate of Pope Sylvester. The Emperor Constantine was also present. The Creed of Nicæa came from this council meeting, defining against Arius the true divinity of the ‘Son of God’...and the fixing of the date for keeping Easter.” The scriptures clearly and soundly condemns the entire observance and celebration of Easter! If we are to experience the liberation of our Afrikan minds, then we must turn from these and other sick Euro-pagan practices.

however if you like me and aren't celebrating this as Religious holiday then the above you can ignore.

Then go dig into some nice chocolates and gorge yourself!
