it may be a religious holiday but i don't think you understand easter

it's about family and shit, would you go fuck the dog and play on your xbox on easter monday in stead of spending time with the rest of your family... just because you are atheist?

christmas is the same way. except people will get drunk as fuck on christmas and no one cares. i drink at every occasion but waking up with a hangover after good friday is unacceptable lol

The real meaning of the holiday was theResurrection of Christ. The Easter Bunny, eggs and chicks are pagan fertility symbols- something the advertising companies came up with the market the holiday with. I do not know the details of the story behind that.

The better question would be why do people celebrate Good Friday? Jesus is alive and well and He sits at the right hand of God in Heaven. Why would you celebrate a holiday to commemorate Jesus' death? That is ignorant.

What I find amusing is that people claim that Easter and other holidays solely exist so companies can boost sales. While companies use the holidays in order to do that, that is not why they exist (with the exception of "Father's Day", which is). The holidays originally had a much more meaningful purpose, and because they have been celebrated for hundreds of years, they are ingrained into our society. It's only in extremely recent times that they have become an excuse for people to buy things, and it take more than a few years to undo several hundred years of culture.

THAT's why.

I don't believe in Easter nor Christmas ever since I was a child, that is due to the fact my family and I are not even Christian but we still believe in Jesus' teachings.


Emphasis are great!

..I celebrate it because of it's religious aspect.

But considering the other side, you're being kind of... uncaring? Can't really find the word.

Why wouldn't people, especially kids, want to be happy? Or for that matter, have candy?

Fuck you people. How dare you have an excuse to be happy and eat tasty things. FUK.

christians celebrate that holiday because jesus supposedly died for all of humanity's sins. it's not like they celebrate jesus's death just for the hell of it you know. they do so because they believe that if jesus didn't die, they would be eternally doomed to suffer in hell or something

you know for an annoying religious christian, you don't seem to know why the majority of your fellow christians celebrate a very important holiday. it's kinda ironic

but whatever i didn't expect you to make an intelligent response in this thread anyway

"Sigh"

It's a reason for the redneck side of my family, funny I call them that since it contains Mexicans and Blacks, to have a get together. That's about it. I may or may not get some candy, which is a nice bonus. Everything doesn't have to be so negative, it's just a holiday. And I don't think you should have to be any religion to celebrate it, regardless of its origins.

Fucking chocolate and shit, why does anyone care why anyone cares about Easter? It's all a semi-religious retail-oriented circle jerk at the end of the day.

So?

People enjoy holidays and they've become tradition for most people, regardless of whether or not they have religious origins.

You miserable heathen, Easter is the day Christ rose from the dead after dying for our sins! The whole "Easter Bunny" and "Easter Eggs" thing is trash, but that the resurrection of Christ is the reason for the whole holiday.

But who said I believed in that, be tolerant of people's religion man. I said even none religious people celebrated it. Which is my confusion, religious people can celebrate anything they want if it isn't morally wrong or illegal.

Easter is the day that Jesus supposedly rose from the grave and became the savior and all that shit, but naturally most people think of that as a crock of shit, so instead, we decided that the bunny, chocolate and family togetherness was the secular version that most people celebrate today to a certain degree, and I don't have a problem with that.

It's actually quite funny, considering that Easter was originally a Pagan holiday, but when Christianity took over the Roman Empire, they decided to change up some things with the holiday, and the rest is history.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Why do non-Christians celebrate Christmas?

Why do they replace the idea of Jesus with the image of Santa Claus?

Exactly.

It's all fun, and besides, holidays have been perverted beyond the point of recognition nowadays.

(Who celebrates Halloween as a time to worship Satan?)
