Easter Trivia

The History of Easter

  • Why is Easter celebrated? Easter is celebrated as the return of Jesus Christ to life after his crucification. This holiday is said to be the most sacred of all the Christian holidays or celebrations.
  • Why is it called Easter? The name Easter owes its origin from Easter, the Anglo-Saxon goddess who symbolizes hare and egg. The English name “Easter” is much newer. However, some believe that the word Easter came from an early German word “eostarun”, meaning dawn and white.
  • What date is Easter celebrated on? Easter is usually celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon following the first day of Spring. It could take place on any Sunday between March 22 and April 25. Easter does not fall on a fixed day each year, though Christians prefer to celebrate it on the Sunday of the resurrection.

I’m curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be working with? I’m having some minor security issues with my latest website and I would like to find something more secure. Do you have any recommendations?

I was just seeking this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative websites in top of the list. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.

I appreciate all the work you all have put into your site! I’m going to Tweet this out to my followers… Definitely worth passing on!
