I consider myself a Christian; not the best in the world, but I am making the effort. I've read my Bible several times from front to back, and I've read various versions of it. I would, just for clarification's sake, like for someone to tell me where in the Bible it talks about the Easter Bunny. People, there is no Easter Bunny in the Bible. You won't find the word "Easter" in the Bible, either. There are no egg hunts, no chocolate bunnies, no bonnets to wear in parades, etc. If someone is going to protest a display on the grounds that it's religious, for pity's sake, make sure it's religious! Otherwise, you just look stooopid.

You are so right! I've been bugged up about "Easter" being the way its been for so long, and not that many people even care to check out the truth!

This word “Easter” bothered me for many years, and the way Jesus’ resurrection was celebrated; with eggs, candy, bunny rabbits, etc. I looked into it and found out that the word “Easter” originated from the Anglo-Saxon name of a Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility, to whom was dedicated a month corresponding to April. Her festival was celebrated on the day of the Vernal equinoz; traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts.

Our Lord’s resurrection should not be celebrated this way! It is a tradition of an idol! Check out this article: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/05224d.htm
