Did you know that the Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs promoted a goddess. Both of these gave honor to Ēostre or Ostara, this came about in the 8th Century. She is a German-made up false god, since we know that our Heavenly Father in Heaven is the only God.
Truth about the Easter Bunny & Easter Eggs
Ēostre or Ostara used the bunny and eggs since those were symbols of fertility. Bunnies were known to have huge numbers of litters of baby rabbits in early spring. So she used the rabbit as a symbol of fertility.
Easter Eggs also called Paschal Eggs, or known as decorated eggs. Paschal being related to Easter or the Jewish Passover. Even the Catholics, use Easter Eggs as symbolic of the tomb of Christ. Not to mention, Historians believe King Edward I of England, who ruled from 1272 to 1307, dyed boiled eggs and gave them to members of his royal household on Easter. Did you know a hidden feature in games and electronic devices is called an “Easter Egg”.

The Easter Bunny, also known as the Easter Hare, came about from German custom. This custom of the Easter Bunny came to American in the 1800’s. As you can see the goddess Ēostre and the Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs were all German derived with pagan roots. They deal with lower case god. We all know there is only one God! Sadly to say, the Easter Bunny today is the most commonly recognized for Easter. I guess that’s why I like the blog post Silly Rabbit, Easter is for Jesus.
Easter is for Jesus!
Let’s not take Easter off the Resurrection of Jesus. Jesus is the reason for Easter, we celebrate a Risen Savior! Jesus is first and the center of everything, not pushed aside or put second or last! He is our Savior who died for our sins so we may have eternal life. Easter is all about our Lord and Savior not some bunny, eggs or a false god. It is all about Him! I like the song I serve a risen Savior He’s in the world today. I know that He is living no matter what men may say … He Lives! He Lives!
Did you know Easter Sunday is also called Resurrection Sunday.
