    Merchants love this time of year cause they know black people (eg. the biggest spenders globally) will go out and empty their pockets in pursuit of looking good on Son-day.

    The need to build, the need to educate our youth on the Elementary, Junior, and High School level is lost is transition...

    The real story of Easter predates religion by thousands of years.

    I don't see how paganism is "dark," but okay. I personally knew that Christianity stole the Easter holiday from pagan rites of fertility, and corrupted a natural celebration in order to get the pagans to conform to their religion.

    • Easter - Christian festival that celebrates the so-Called resurrection of Jesus, The Christ.
    • Eostre - Pagan origins of Eastre). She was the Great Mother Goddess. Celebrations were centered around the birth of spring and fertility (eg. matriarchal origin)
    • Pagan - Egyptian rustic civilian coined by the Romans
    • Christianity - Religious belief system/practice that follows the so-Called teaching of Jesus, The Christ

    ...all are completely different words with completely different meanings. You are correct. Christianity is the copy cat rather than the cat in this instance. You will notice that the title of the quoted post is "Easter's Dark Side". I thought it was catchy, I liked it so much that I decided this phraseology would head up this thread. Yes, the Romans brillliantly cooked up the idea to adapt pagan rites, pagan rituals and pagan signs (eg. Egyptian symbols) to further embellish their developing power base and the strategy worked. Today, you will notice that Ethiopia is a Christian nation. Why? Because there are practices, rituals and symbols inside Christianity that reflect Ancient Ethiopian practices, rites, rituals and symbols.

    When you speak of pagan(ism) you speak to the rustic egyptian civilians in KmT (Egypt) who celebrated Eostre. The word Easter is a more recent festival that Christians around the world celebrate.

    Thank you for the information. The only thing I didn't know was Eostre's origin. I did know that the ancient religions were matriarchal in nature, celebrating the "divine mother" as it were. When I started practicing Witchcraft at eleven, it was the celebration of nature and the mother goddess that drew me spiritually.
