A pagan holiday that "christians" have tried make a christian holiday. Easter originated in ancient Rome before Christ was born. Here is where it came from: Nimrod (who tried to bild the tower of Babel) was killed and was thought to be a god by some people. His wife was a whore and when she became pregnant, she claimed the conception was immaculate. The group of people who believed her lie claimed that Nimrod himself impregnated her from heaven. The child that was born was named Tamuz (which is where worship of the cross originated). When Tamuz's mother died, the same group of people that believed he was the savior claimed that she became the godess named easter. They believed that she once returned to earth in an egg (easter eggs). A cult took this myth and turned it into a religion. On easter, pagan priests would impregnate young virgins on the alter (that was meant to worship nimrod). A year later, the babies that were born as a result were slaughtered on easter day and eggs were dipped in their blood (where egg painting originated). Easter does not honor Christ in any way and is not one of God's annual festivals.more...
