The origins of Easter can be traced back to ancient pagan celebrations of the spring equinox. Many cultures, including the ancient Egyptians, Persians, and Romans, celebrated the arrival of spring with festivals and feasts. These celebrations often included symbols of fertility, such as eggs and rabbits, which were seen as a sign of new life and growth.
What is Easter?
For Christians, Easter is a Christian holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. We celebrate Easter because not only did our Lord conquer death, but without the resurrection, we have no foundation for our faith.
