    Try Jewish holiday - Easter is basically a reworking of the Passover holiday, is it not?

    No doubt Pagans also celebrated the beginning of spring - who doesn't - but modern Easter has far more in common with Jewish Pesach.

    There is much in a name.

    Ēostre -> Ēastre -> Easter

    Eostre was also known in the ancient world, depending on your exact geographic location, as Astarte, Ashtoreth, and Asherah. It's merging with Christ's teachings goes back to old heresies that taught that YHWH was also El and ruled beside his female counterpart- his Asherah.

    Like most holidays (the word itself a corruption of holy days) coopted by the Universal Roman Church, its roots lie not in the Torah or Bible or any of God's works, but in the false teachings of Lucifer, the god of this world.
