i guess easter is the spring festival stolen by christists. like christmas is the winter solstice of the druids and may day is the old pagan festival of the summer.
a most unusual celebration. odd, one might say. it celebrates the impossible resurrection of a dead man who is a figment of the imagination. naturally, since he wasn't born, he couldn't die. and since he didn't die, he couldn't be resurrected. so much for 'miracles'.
and resurrection is a major pillar of christist ideology.
i shake my head and agree with one of the early 'saints' of christism, Tertullian, (ca 160 CE), who said: credo quia absurdum est (I believe, because it is absurd). He also said, "And the son of God died, which is immediately credible because it is absurd. And buried he rose again, which is certain because it is impossible."
another early 'saint', origen, was so caught up in his 'impure thoughts' that he castrated himself.
someone once called foxhunting "the unspeakable in pursuit of the inedible".
similarly this whole thing is "the gullible in wild pursuit of the nonexistent".
