There are a couple of memes here, Patti, that include Passover (Pesah/Pascha).  Only in English-speaking countries is "Easter" used.  It comes from the Nordic source of the goddess of spring and rebirth, Eostre.  The proper name for "Easter" in Christianity is "Passover."  It used the Greek translation (Pascha) derived from Hebrew (Pesach) which means Passover.  That's why so many Christian denominations have Paschal candles and such.  Easter, like so many celebrations we have, come from an amalgamation of beliefs and practices, Pagan, Jewish and Christian (like Christmas, from where decorated trees and the world yule come from Paganism). 

It's all seasonal fun.  Regardless of one's beliefs, enjoy and have fun.  As for me, I wait for my favorite - a huge bag of Reese's chocolate peanut butter eggs. 

Happy Easter!  Happy Passover!  Happy Eostran!

BTW, for those wondering why there are still bunny smileys displaying on the post form even though Easter is long over, it's because 2023 is the Chinese Year of the Rabbit. The forum is embracing that because, well, just because it's fun.  [easter_wink] [easter_cheesy]

And BTW, some people have been wondering why the Easter Smileys are still up even though Easter was back on March 31st? Well that's because 1) it's true that's when Easter was in this country, but 2) Easter was so early here this year that Greek Orthodox Easter is still several weeks down the road, not until May 5th. Plus Passover, doesn't run until April 16th through the 30th, so I'll be putting up our Passover Smiley before too long.
