Religion: The History of Easter

For many of us Easter comes and goes and we celebrate the holiday for simply that, a holiday. As mothers, godmothers, aunts, big sisters and mentors, we all will be asked questions such as, "Why is there an Easter Bunny?' or 'What does Jesus have to do with an Easter Egg?' at some point if not already.

I am not ashamed to admit that I vaguely know the answers to questions about the history of Easter. This is unacceptable for someone who has been around for forty years. 

I know that I am not the only one!

It is for this reason, I thought I would share some links with you. The links are from a blog, that means, they are short and easy to read.

Take a moment to take in some knowledge!

To answer the question 'What is Easter?'
