Interesting facts about Easter

-So … I got to thinking about what do bunnies and eggs really have to do with the Resurrection of Jesus and here is what I found .

The Encyclopedia Britannica says: “The English name Easter is of uncertain origin ; the Anglo-Saxon  priest Vernerable Bede in the 8th century derived it from the Anglo Saxon spring goddess Eostre .” Others link it to Astarte, the Phoenician fertility goddess who had the Babylonian counterpart Ishtar .

#2 … Hares , rabbits : These are symbols of fertility “handed down from the ancient ceremonial and symbolism of European and Middle Eastern pagan spring festivals .” – EB

#3 … Eggs According to Funk and Wagnalls Standard Dictionary of Folklore, Mythology and Legend , the hunt for Easter eggs , supposedly brought by the Easter bunny , “is not amere child’s play , but the vestige of a fertility rite.” Some cultures believed that the decorated Easter egg “could magically bring happiness, prosperity, health, and protection. ”  Traditional Festivals

#4…New Easter Outfit : “It was  considered discourteous and therefore bad luck to greet the Scandinavian  goddess of Spring , or Eastre, in anything but fresh garb .” – The Giant Book of Superstitions.

#5… Sunrise services: These have been linked to rites of ancient sun worshippers “performed at the vernal equinox welcoming the sun and its great power to bring new life to all growing things .” the Complete Book of American Holidays .

The American Book of days well describes the origin of Easter: There is no doubt that the Church in its early days adopted the old pagan customs and gave a Christian meaning to them .”

This really got me thinking “that the celebration of Easter is not based on the Bible . If you look into its history , though , you will see the true meaning of Easter it is a tradition based on ancient fertility rites .

I want tapologize for getting too religious however , isn’t this holiday supposed to be about Jesus Christ ? I know that not everyone has the same beliefs , so please forgive me if I come off offensive , that is never my intent . I just thought this information would be interesting to my “Christian” readers because Easter is a big part of  a lot of my local Church’s customs .

“Innocence Taker” is a rap/poem I wrote for all the little boys and girls who were abused by a parent. No one understands how it feels to look at yourself in the mirror everyday and see your abuser looking back at you (unless you have been through it) to serve as a constant reminder of your past . You see him/her because they created you. You look just like them. But you will never be them.

I am not a poet or a rapper. But I made a YouTube video where I “rap” this song . My face Is covered in the video because it’s not about me . I want you , not to look at my face and judge me on what I look like . I want you to actually listen to my words.  Although my delivery is far from being as smooth as a rapper’s.

I would like all of those hurting children (hurting adults)  to picture their face , and use my words to speak the hurt . At least until they find their own .

I must say … it felt SO good to get it out.

Letting it out  … is a healing
