I don’t celebrate Easter – I celebrate Resurrection Sunday
They have changed the definition that is now found in the new Webster dictionary, I own a Webster dictionary published in 1957, which says “Easter comes from a paschal feast, originally a festival in honor of the goddess of spring, Eastre.” By the way, Eastre is the fictional goddess of fertility. That explains were the rabbit and egg came into the Easter picture.
Haven’t you ever noticed the word “Easter” is not in the Bible, now you know why. I have also noticed when someone speaks of Easter and Easter egg hunts, there is just know real power in it. But when someone speaks of “Resurrection Sunday”, they are speaking of one of the most powerful and exciting things that has ever happened on this earth, The Only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ rose from the grave (No Bunnies and no eggs).
One more “By the way”, The proper greeting of this season for Disciples of Christ (Christians) is not “Happy Easter”, it is “He is risen” and the proper response is “He is risen indeed!”.
