Q&A

Is Easter a pagan holiday?

Question:

A publication I read claims Easter has its roots in a pagan holiday and rituals and as such ought not to be observed by Christians. Colored eggs were used in rituals associated with a pagan god. If this is true, shouldn&#039;t we stop calling the day we celebrate Christ&#039;s Resurrection Easter and stop hunting eggs on that day?
