Easter is the most important Christian festival.
At Easter time Christians remember the last week of Jesus’ life.
How did Easter get its name?
One belief is that Easter got its name from the Goddess of Spring called Eostre who some people worshipped long before Jesus was born.
At that time it was thought that the sun died in winter and was born again in spring when days would lengthen and the sun’s power would return. In Europe, Eostre was honoured as the bringer of spring.
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.
