    Best answer: Answer: The origins of Easter are rooted in European traditions. The name Easter comes from a pagan figure called Eastre (or Eostre) who was celebrated as the goddess of spring by the Saxons of Northern Europe. A festival called Eastre was held during the spring equinox by these people to honor her.

    Why are these traditions so ingrained in Easter Sunday? And what do they have to do with the resurrection of Jesus?
    Well, to be frank, nothing.
    Bunnies, eggs, Easter gifts and fluffy, yellow chicks in gardening hats all stem from pagan roots. These tropes were incorporated into the celebration of Easter separately from the Christian tradition of honoring the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead.
    According to the University of Florida's Center for Children's Literature and Culture, the origin of the celebration — and the origin of the Easter Bunny — can be traced back to 13th-century, pre-Christian Germany, when people worshiped several gods and goddesses. The Teutonic deity Eostra was the goddess of spring and fertility, and feasts were held in her honor on the Vernal Equinox. Her symbol was the rabbit because of the animal’s high reproduction rate.

  • Giving stuff to homeless people?

    Hi, I'm a 17 year old girl and I thought it would be nice to go into the city on Saturday or Sunday and hand out Easter baskets to homeless kids. The baskets I have planned are Easter themed and contain candy, chocolates, crayons, coloring books, paper, pencils, and small stuffed animals. But I have a few concerns: Would the parents be offended by this gesture? Especially the non-Christian ones? Would all the food need to be in sealed packages? (The marshmallow peeps for instance are not) Is this safe for me to do alone? Thanks.

  • Do you believe that Jesus Christ is coming to Earth anytime soon?

    Best answer: Jesus Christ made his presence known to Bible scholars in 1914 with world war 1 when he cleansed the heavens of Satan and his angels (the demons).

    Best answer: Jesus Christ made his presence known to Bible scholars in 1914 with world war 1 when he cleansed the heavens of Satan and his angels (the demons). Yes, Revelation 12:7- 10 As the following scriptures say(11-17), Satan and the demons are very angry because they are not allowed back in heaven. We can certainly see his anger as we see how people in general act today. You can read about this at 2Timothy 3:1-7. Although, people are as prophesied, there is something happening earth-wide as prophesied by Jesus Christ himself. Jesus told his followers that there would be wars, false prophets, famine, earthquakes and all other things that cause suffering, and he added: "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:3-14) Yes, as 2Timothy 3:1 prophesied, "in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here." As Jehovah's Witnesses preach the good news about God's Kingdom, many agree that this world is a wicked place in which we live. Will God allow man to continue ruining the earth? Will he allow humans to annihilate himself? I invite you to the international website, jw.org and Bible Teachings > Bible Questions Answered. Please watch videos that answer questions such as: Does God have a Name? (Psalms 83:18) What is God's Kingdom? (Daniel 2:44) Why did God Create the Earth? (Genesis 1:20-30; Psalms 115:16; Matthew 5:5) Why did Jesus Die? (John 3:16+17; Romans 5:12-19) and Why Study the Bible? (Isaiah 48:17+18; 2Timothy 3:16+17) If you believe what you learned, you can request your free personal Bible study online, even at a time and place convenient for you. There is nor reason that Jesus has to come in the flesh a second time. He told his followers to "Go and make disciples of people of all the nations...." and said to them; "And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things." (Matthew 28:18-20) Jesus has his "faithful and discreet slave" here on earth who are dispensing more spiritual food than we could ever keep up with. Matthew 24:45. The preaching of the good news is being accomplished by Jehovah's Witnesses in 240 countries, even as far as the North Pole. Our website is now in 900 languages. I appreciate, so much, being in obedience to Jesus in helping him to get the good news preached in my territory. Thank you so much for this question.

  • Do you believe in God and Jesus as your savior. And why does God need Jesus when he is the almighty himself?

    Best answer: I believe in Gods... and Goddesses.

    A historical Jesus may or may not have existed; I don't believe he was a God/son of God though.

    I don't believe in saviors, or the concept of salvation.
