The Pagan Roots of Easter

Most of orthodox Christendom will celebrate Easter. When they do, they will have no clue that their “Christian” holiday has pure pagan roots. Most will celebrate with colored eggs, Easter baskets, bunny rabbits and some will even participate in a sunrise service. As Christians, they will be proudly participating in what they think is the holiest of all Christian holidays.

The word Easter is very simply Ishtar, a pagan ritualistic celebration named after the goddess and queen of heaven, Semiramis. The celebration goes back to the days of Noah’s grandson Nimrod. Ishtar (Semiramis) established the mystery religion of Babylon.
