Easter Or Resurrection Day
Easter comes from the word Eostr which is an Angelo Saxon word for to be in heat. Eastre, Eostr, Ostara was the goddess of spring in the ancient religion of the Angelo and Saxons.Christianity when it reached the Teutons,incorporated in its celebration of the great Christian feast day many of the heathen rites and customs which accompanied their observance of the spring[i] It has also been noted that Easter has roots with Ishtar, the Assyrian fertility goddess of spring, or Astarte, the Phoenian version of Ishtar. The truth is that Ester has nothing to do with the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The heathen rites and customs of this spring festival used the hare, and colored eggs as fertility symbols to celebrate the forces of spring.
