I said this to a religious friend and they got so mad!!

I find it hilarious how they can preach to you all day long and tell you that you need Jesus and all that crap yet when you tell them the origins of one of their hijacked holidays they get pissed and won't hear of it.

If only i was not in this seedy hotel room and had my computer i would have posted "Bright eyes" by Garfunkle so that we could all have a good sob and get all nostalgic about your chocolate haemorroids Beez!

Humph... Never mind... Right off to bed for me for dribbly dreams involving chocolate covered faces and indigestion...

Nighty night folks

Kindest respects

The reason given in the OP is correct-ish. But missing much of the real meaning.

Essentially it goes like this: Ostara is celebrated as the spring rebirth festival. Rabbits, chicks, and ducks are springtime animals and popularly represent birth.

Eggs...same thing. They are a symbol of birth, fertility, etc.

To an initiate, the gods and goddesses are merely metaphors for a system of understanding. To the profane, festivals are created to honor them. Tomayto, tomahto.

Easter is basically about the renewal of life. Everything in Easter reflects this theme. It does, however, borrow a variety of expressions which can muddle the message. Thanks for bringing us this educational thread!
