Today is Nisan 16, on this day 2000 years ago our Messiah Yeshua gave up his life to free man from bondage and reconcile us to himself. This is our Passover, what has been dubbed "Good Friday". On this day victory was achieved over the ancient enemy.
On this day all across the world christians should take a moment to pause and remember what that day cost him, and cost us. Before dusk today 2000 years ago he was taken into his tomb to await his resurrection. This is the day our King achieved victory for us and for anyone who would believe in the Son of YHWH.
Perhaps one day we will get to see him soon, in his glory...2000 years its been a long time not getting to see your King, i pray he comes soon.

I respect the OP but are we really sure of the origins of Easter?
A google search: Google Ishtar and Easter seems to bring up some interesting questions and beliefs as to the above mentioned origins of Easter.
Anyway it was 2000 years ago and I guess it is not really possible to know the truth unless you were there. Hope everyone has a happy and safe Easter (or Ishtar)!
One should keep in mind that most of the rest of the world considers that Jesus didn't die on the Cross, but survived the trauma. Most of the world doesn't think Jesus is god.
Most of the world? No, you mean Islam says that. Most of the rest of the world says he never existed in the first place.
