Easter Sunday | Why is it called Easter?

Easter Sunday | Why is it called Easter?

The name Easter is derived from 'Ostara' or 'Eostre', a pagan goddess of fertility, whose feast was celebrated on the Vernal Equinox. The word East is also derived from her names, as is Oestrogen, the female hormone. In Saxon culture, the Hare was sacred to Ostara and the modern tradition of the Easter Bunny is a distant echo of that.

However, In most languages other than English and German, the holiday's name is derived from Pesach, the Hebrew name of Passover, a Jewish holiday to which the Christian Easter is intimately linked.

Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.❤

😇May you feel Christ’s love this Sunday as we celebrate the rise of Jesus.

“Let your light shine before others.”🙏

Happy Easter! ❤ 👉 Best Gift for Easter
