  • Is there really a easter bunny that enters your house?

    Best answer: No, Jason. The Easter Bunny does not enter your house. But there's somebody else who does -- and he's NOT the Easter bunny. Do you have a guess as to who he might be? Or do you need a hint?

  • Why is the day called "Easter" and not ascension day or resurrection day?

    Best answer: In English and in German the festival happened on the same day as the feast of a Pagan goddess. Her name originally derived from the pagan goddess Ishtar.

    Best answer: In English and in German the festival happened on the same day as the feast of a Pagan goddess. Her name originally derived from the pagan goddess Ishtar. So in English it's "Easter" and in German it's "Ostern".

    However in the majority of European languages it is derived from the Hebrew word for the Passover. Thus we have:
    Latin - Pascha or Festa Paschalia
    Greek - Paskha
    Bulgarian - Paskha
    Danish - Paaske
    Dutch - Pasen
    Finnish - Pääsiäinen
    French - Pâques
    Indonesian - Paskah
    Irish - Cáisc
    Italian - Pasqua
    Lower Rhine German - Paisken
    Norwegian - Påske
    Portuguese - Páscoa
    Romanian - Pasti
    Russian - Paskha
    Scottish Gaelic - Càisg
    Spanish - Pascua
    Swedish - Påsk
    Welsh - Pasg

    The method for calculating this festival was determined at the Council of Nicea in 325 AD, centuries before the English language existed. But when the western church adopted the Gregorian calendar, while the Eastern church stuck to the Julian calendar, their "Easters" started to be celebrated on different days.

    Ascension Day is a separate Christian feast, it's the Thursday forty days after Easter and ten days before Pentecost. So this year Ascension Day (in the western church calendar) will be Thursday 10th of May.

  • As an Australian, how are you celebrating Easter Sunday?

    Best answer: Well I got fooled on April Fools Day earlier today by going to Chatswood Chase shopping centre and it was close. Unbelievable. Now I'm getting drunk watching the Swannies take on Port Adelaide.
