The word Easter comes from the name of an ancient pagan goddess, Ishtar. The celebrations in honor of Ishtar included elements such as rabbits and eggs, which were used as fertility symbols. Today Easter is celebrated by many Christians who believe it is when Jesus Christ arose from the dead. But the name of Easter and the bunnies and eggs are all of pagan origin, not Christian.
ummm EVERY RELIGION! what kind of person are you? Answer: The Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs are associated with the Chrisitan celebration called "Easter" but it has no origin in their beliefs. The term "Easter" comes from a pagan belief that worship each of the soltice seasons. They used symbols that represented fertillity and rebirth for the Spring season. The Jewish name of their holiday was "First Fruits". When Jesus was resurrected after his death, he did so on this event of the Jewish religious calendar.
To Christians Christmas is the celebration of the birth of our saviour Jesus. Easter is the day Christians celebrate the risen Christ, after his death on the cross. What very few people are aware of is that both of these 'Christian holidays' are in origin ancient pagan holy days. Christmas is associated with the winter solstice, Easter was the ancient celebration of fertility. This is why Easter is symbolized by eggs (fertility) and bunnies (procreation).
Because it used to be a pagan holiday, much like Christmas. Revolving around the rise of spring, and of rebirth, the egg (and the rabbit) symbolize fertility. Look up the goddess Easter (pronounced Ess-ter)! This is the origin of Easter. As Christianity grew in popularity due to Saul, or Saint Paul, patrons of the religion sought to connect with the masses by having parts of older religions as part of their own. "Hey, we can also have Easter! But now... Easter 2.0! With Christ!"
