  1. 1. How did Easter get its name?

    Easter got its name by the Goddess of Spring, whose name was ‘Eostre’! Many years before Jesus was born, people thought that the sun died in winter and was ressurected back in spring. Also, they assumed that the Goddess brought spring, therefore making the Sun stronger. So, people think that ‘Easter’ got its name from the Goddess of Spring-Eostre.πŸ€πŸ€πŸŒ»πŸŒΊπŸŒΌπŸ€πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸŒΊπŸŒΌπŸ€πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸŒΊπŸŒΌπŸ€πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸŒΊπŸŒΌπŸ€πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸŒΊπŸŒΌπŸ€πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸŒΊπŸŒΌ

  2. One belief is that Easter got its name from the Goddess of Spring called
    Eostre who some people worshiped long before Jesus was born. At that time
    it was thought that the sun died in winter and was born again in spring when
    days would lengthen and the sun’s power would return. In Europe, Eostre was
    honored as the bringer of spring.

    Good Friday is a day of mourning in church. During special Good Friday services Christians remember Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross, and what this means for their faith.

    Easter Monday is the day after Easter Sunday and is celebrated as a holiday in some largely Christian cultures, especially Catholic and Eastern Christian cultures.
