The Origins of Easter

Besides the Jesus Part, Of Course

Some sources claim the word Easter is derived from Ēostre, a Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility. Other accounts trace Easter to the Latin term hebdomada alba, or white week, an ancient reference to Easter week and the white clothing donned by people who were baptized during that time. Through a translation error, the term later appeared as esostarum in Old High German, which eventually became Easter in English.”

Easter Greetings! ¡Felices Pascuas!

Looking through Easter greetings from celebrities on Twitter.

The Easter bunny freaking out kids seems to be popular. Ellen posted such a photo, as did Kelly Clarkson. Kelly’s daughter clearly did not like being there.

One of the things I like best about President Obama is his family. He appears to be a solid family man, which is increasingly rare these days. They’ve got a great-looking, very tall family. I wonder what the daughters will do after life in the White House.

The best Easter pic out there, in my opinion, is Ozzy dressed as a demented bunny. It’s perfect.

I wonder what Guillermo del Toro is up to. He posted a pic while at home, which is dubbed Bleak House. Hes a fascinating fellow.

One of the strangest is a Kardashian posting a shot from a devotional, complete with Godtalk and Bible verses. It doesn’t really fit her image.
