LordZorch: Puget Sound - home to many of the world's libtard dumbasses.

The holiday has been around in one form or another since the bronze age, the libtards should get over themselves and their PC idiocy.

You know that the mayor of Edmonds is a Republican, right?

BarkingUnicorn: EngineerAU: Fade2black: Actually he's spot on. Was coming in to say about the same thing.

So you believe Easter, the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus, dates back to the Bronze Age, even though it ended over half a millennium before Jesus came to earth? Don't you think people were wondering all that time who is this Jesus dude whose resurrection they were celebrating when he hadn't been born yet?

Let's return the original observation:  The holiday has been around in one form or another since the bronze age

You assume "holiday" means "Easter."  It doesn't.  It's the holiday of Ishtar, a Bronze Age fertility goddess whose symbols included eggs and rabbits.  Christians co-opted Ishtar's holiday in order to overwrite its meaning with their own.  Obviously, that has not worked entirely.

I bet no Christians have ever heard of this before. Thanks for your wisdom. Have you let everyone else know?

"Easter, that's a weird tradition. Easter, the day Jesus rose from the dead. What should we do?"
"How about eggs?"
"Well, what does that have to do with Jesus?"
"All right, we'll hide 'em."
"I don't follow your logic."
"Don't worry ... There's a bunny."
