Son of God, Jesus Christ, He was raised from the grave on Sunday, on the third day after his death. Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ every year. That is why some people call “Easter Sunday” the day Jesus Christ resurrected. Some Christians call it “Resurrection Sunday.” So Why the difference?
The name “Easter” is derived from the name of an ancient myth and the names of goddesses. These events go back in time to the construction of the Tower of Babel in the book of Genesis.
The word “Easter” is derived from the ancient word “Eastre or Eostre”. These “Eastre or Eostre” are the names of goddesses. Goddess called the “Eastre” was worshiped by the Saxons of northern Europe. “Eastre” originally means “Spring”. The goddess “Eastre” also said, “I am the god of fertility”; in other words, she is a “goddess of fertility” There are other similar names that have traditionally been considered goddesses. “Ostare, Ostara, Ostern, Eostra, Eostre, Eostur, Eastra, Eastur, Austron and Ausos” were also worshiped as goddesses. The festivals of these goddesses are also celebrated in the early summer. There are many other goddess festivals held in the spring.

The story of the “Easter Egg” falling from the sky is similar to that of Jesus Christ, who descended from heaven, so some Christians make the Easter Egg. Nowadays, there is nothing in the Easter Egg, then it is called the Tomb of Christ and is being used by children as a toy.
