I am so tired of misinformed christians calling it Easter. For those of you that don't know. Easter was the name of a greek goddess. She was the pagan goddess of fertility. The pagans worhipped her in the spring in hopes she would bless their crops with fertile fields. Her sign was the bunny becuase it is the most fertile animal. The pagans painted eggs to pay homage to her. That's why Easter, the Easter bunny, and decorative eggs are not in the Bible. They don't have anything to do with the story of Jesus. When you decorate your eggs and tell your kids about a magical Easter bunny your practicing a pagan ritual, and you take the glory away from Christ. Please wake up... Give all the glory and celebration tto Jesus. Dont make him have to share what he did with a false goddess. You either Follow Christ and worship him fully or you be a pagan and follow their rituals. It's not Easter, the story of Christ. It's Easter the story of a fertility goddess. It should be Resurection, the story of Christ.
