Quoting captain cj
how many of you celebrate easter with easter eggs? probably not everyone (hopefully). Do you even think about how it got into the church? well if you have and want to now how keep on readin. It starts out with pegans worshiping their godess estar(the godess of birth), not easter. well when rome took over their country the roman emperor commandedthem to become christians and if they refused xx.
So obviously they all said call me a christian. but when they came to the church they couldn't worship estar so since an egg represents lifebirth they said"on resurection sunday let's have an event where we look for eggs, and we can call it easter in honor of estar so they did and got everyone involved in it and now it is engraved in our societies. Later I'll tell you why we include a tree in christmas ,and why we celebrate it on december 25.
...sol invictus...winters death we know why december 25th...
this is an old argument friend, best not ge into it...las time we had it we had to argue for days about egyptian sun disks(halos) communion being the old rite of god eating etc.
