Quote of the Day – Happy Pascha (or Easter to Western Christians)

I think we need to do some deep soul searching about what’s important in our lives and renew our spirit and our spiritual thinking, whether it’s through faith-based religion or just through loving nature or helping your fellow man.
Louie Schwartzberg
Do you people know how hard it is to find a good quote for Easter that is not a quote about either Christ or the Easter Bunny?

    If you are Christian, Easter is about Christ. If you are pagan or an “atheist”, Easter is about the Easter Bunny. If you are a practitioner of Islam or Judaism or Hinduism or Taoism, Easter is irrelevant. And that’s the truth!

    Actually “Easter” is about spring. The word comes from öster – the name of the German goddess of spring. We Christians used to call it Pascha (some still call Christ the Pascal Lamb). In the late 1700’s the term Easter began to catch on for the Pascal season as well as the spring season, and gradually the Christian term lost usage in the West. It still remains in use in the Eastern part of Christianity. (Taking off my historian hat now)
