I'd like to take a moment to wish a happy NON-Easter to many of you here

Because, after all, the entire 'Easter' thing is based around one religion's beliefs. This does not make those beliefs true - yet neither does this discussion make them untrue. They are beliefs...which are not facts...even though many seem to think they are one and the same. Some people may believe red is prettier than purple. And while it may be a fact they believe it to be true it does not make it true...nor a fact. So for those of you that do not believe in the whole Resurrection spiel...I hope you have a great Sunday. That is all.

I think many non-religious people get into the Easter thing for the dinner, socializing, the candy and fun with the kids looking for eggs etc.

True, but I don't mean 'non-religious' only, since only one of the many faiths (Christianity) observes Easter.

The rest of my family sort of does religion to some degree. I go along with the eggs and candy for the kids and the bunny kitchen towels for my house.

I definitely don't believe it. It is a nice story and that's all. Have a great Sunday yourself.

I think everyone is entitled to what they chose to believe...but at times, I feel people are trying to force that what they believe trumps what I may believe.

Have a lovely Sunday, JJ. I know that red is the best. Of course there are some people who believe (not true) that yellow is the best colour.

This is the first easter where I've been interested in the celebrations For all of my life easter has just been about getting chocolate eggs etc...and double bubble pay wise if you work This year was different as most of the people I work with are eastern european and easter is a big deal to them. Very busy day today which resulted in restaurant staff doing a couple of hours over time which impacted on their big plans for dinner Spent most of my shift listening to various nationalities discuss how they celebrate easter...I really enjoyed it Obviously religion camee up and I didn't know they were all so religious...and they didn't know about my alien theories Very good day though

Here's a fact from me. Any holiday where I get a chocolate bunny has value.

Actually, the real anniversary of the resurrection was Friday. Easter seems to be a mixture of business and religion, with bunnies and eggs and all. The early Christians did not celebrate Easter.

The Easter tradition is built upon the Passover, which itself was built upon the solstice and fertility celebrations that preceded it by thousands of years. All are about and end to the darkness and a coming or returning of the light. The fact behind them all is, that in the Northern Hemisphere at least, the darkness of long winter nights gives way to the longer days of spring and summer.

Eh, you can not believe in the who resurrection spiel and still Enjoy Easter. The kids hunt for eggs and get excited about it. The grown-ups get to spend time with family. Same with Passover. Were there really locusts and frogs and stuff? Did a big ol' sea really part for the Jews and drown a bunch of mean old Egyptians? Eh, let's recline and eat and talk over each other!

We are a multi-cultural site here, and it seems (to me) hat too many users think any belief other than what they believe is not true. None of us will REALLY know until after we die...so I choose not to say what is right or wrong.

Thank you for the wishes and happy Easter to you. Being a Hindu from India, I came to the Christian culture via the convent school's nun. I know about Christmas, as usual, and good friday. Would like to learn more about the Easter.
