With Easter fast approaching this is a good time to question why you celebrate Easter and even more improtantly HOW you celebrate Easter. Why is the "bunny" associated with Easter? Colored eggs, candy, etc., etc.? Do you know most Easter traditions come from early Paganism?

Here are some links to Paganism and Easter.

So have a fun and safe Easter. Celebrate for what and how you wish. It is a day to celebrate new life. Whether for a man named "Jesus", another God, the coming season, the Earth or life in general.

I always thought it was because of Peter Rabbit, the first pope.
