The Origins of Easter

The origin of Easter is fascinating! 🌸 The English word “Easter” likely comes from the Saxon spring festival Ēostre. Some believe it’s linked to the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre, associated with spring and fertility. However, there’s also a consensus that it derives from the Christian designation of Easter week as “in albis,” which became “eostarum” in Old High German. The Latin and Greek “Pascha” (meaning “Passover”) also contribute to the term. Easter celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after His Crucifixion, and its observance dates back to the 2nd century.
