    According to the Venerable Bede, Easter derives its name from Eostre, an Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring. A month corresponding to April had been named "Eostremonat," or Eostre's month, leading to "Easter" becoming applied to the Christian holiday that usually took place within it. Prior to that, the holiday had been called Pasch (Passover), which remains its name in most non-English languages.

    (Based on the similarity of their names, some connect Eostre with Ishtar, the Babylonian and Assyrian goddess of love and fertility, but there is no solid evidence for this.)

    It seems probable that around the second century A.D., Christian missionaries seeking to convert the tribes of northern Europe noticed that the Christian holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus roughly coincided with the Teutonic springtime celebrations, which emphasized the triumph of life over death. Christian Easter gradually absorbed the traditional symbols.

    In Medieval Europe, eggs were forbidden during Lent. Eggs laid during that time were often boiled or otherwise preserved. Eggs were thus a mainstay of Easter meals, and a prized Easter gift for children and servants.

    In addition, eggs have been viewed as symbols of new life and fertility through the ages. It is believed that for this reason many ancient cultures, including the Ancient Egyptians, Persians, and Romans, used eggs during their spring festivals.

    Many traditions and practices have formed around Easter eggs. The coloring of eggs is a established art, and eggs are often dyed, painted, and otherwise decorated. Eggs were also used in various holiday games: parents would hide eggs for children to find, and children would roll eggs down hills. These practices live on in Easter egg hunts and egg rolls. The most famous egg roll takes place on the White House lawn every year.

    Nothing, nor does the dating of Easter with the moon's phases, they are all linked to the real Easter celebration, the Honouring of the north European fertility goddess, Eostre.

    A bunny helped roll the rock away from the front of Jesus' tomb.

    ...and when He awoke, His disciples offered Him some eggs, and He said "Dude, I hate eggs. I don't wanna see any frickin' eggs. Hide those damn things."

    ...so the Bunny was given the task of hiding the eggs.

    Nothing.It is a pagan holiday and is not worship nor honored by TRUE Christians.A rabbit do not lay hen eggs. Christianity and fantasy don't mix. The same goes for Santa Claus, Halloween and any false-hood  view points of world self-agenda.

      The egg does symbolize Christ rising from the tomb.
      And Santa Clause derived from Saint Nicholas who gave to the poor.

      The eggs belongs to a chicken,and not to a rabbit.Nothing that represent a lie is ok with God. Santa Claus is a made-up lie to make money.He don't fly,and he don't live at the north pole.

    Nothing as far as I am aware - Unless it's in the CCV (Cadburys Chocolate Version)
    Don't question the facts - just believe - He is Risen.

    The outside of the egg represents the tomb.
    The yolk which is yellow represents Christ rising from the dead
    Bunny Rabbit: they multiply and stand for re- birth.
