Easter IS Passover.
The passing-over of Jesus Christ from death to resurrected life.

The Jewish passover was a prefigure of Christ's victory over death, and our exodus from sin's enslavement to God's promised land.
Jesus is the paschal lamb.

The Catholic Church celebrates this season beginning Ash Wednesday, through five weeks of Lent, culminating in the Triduum of Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday.

Easter is a substitute for passover. And go about the days differently.

Many I know that keep passover, have lamb and unleavened bread.
Many that do Easter come together to eat Ham and Turkey.

Still a celebration of the resurrection though. The whole old arguments to pagan festival if you do Easter is if one chooses to celebrate Nimrod, so i dont let that bother me when i hear those arguments.

So says the xtians, who stole the holy days from the Jews. But the Jews don't see Passover as You do, nor should they.

No, the RC's do not celebrate the traditional passover, no their own version.

Passover is a Jewish holy day/s.

Xtians can spin it all they want, but they don't now own Passover as well. That they rely on the Jewish remembrance-celebration to fill out some of their story escapes them.

simply eating some traditional foods is not the same as "celebrating" the holy days of other faiths. Its so silly to say that.

I'm not keeping passover because I eat a lot of matzoh during this season! Nor does my eating lamb mean I'm celebrating Easter!

Come on folks, try a little F'n harder to understand these things. A devout Jew cant actually celebrate Easter anymore than a Xtian can Passover. If you believe in Jesus and his prophecy fulfillment, you cant grasp the Jewish POV, and vice versa.

Passover Strong's G3957 - pascha

1) the paschal sacrifice (which was accustomed to be offered for the people's deliverance of old from Egypt)

2) the paschal lamb, i.e. the lamb the Israelites were accustomed to slay and eat on the fourteenth day of the month of Nisan (the first month of their year) in memory of the day on which their fathers, preparing to depart from Egypt, were bidden by God to slay and eat a lamb, and to sprinkle their door posts with its blood, that the destroying angel, seeing the blood, might pass over their dwellings; Christ crucified is likened to the slain paschal lamb

3) the paschal supper

4) the paschal feast, the feast of the Passover, extending from the 14th to the 20th day of the month Nisan

You'll just chew the ears of those silly rabbits.

Unless I get to them first.

My wife gave up chocolate for Lent.
The other day I looked at the groceries, she's really, I mean really, stocking up on chocolate.
Methinks it will be a blow out on Easter Sunday.

The only event Xtians should be "celebrating" is the breaking and sharing of bread in the memory of Jesus. He never said to celebrate his death, nor his birth.

When Jesus said to bread bread and drink wine, he was referring to when they keep the passover.

Easter egg hunts have nothing to do with the resurrection, i wish churches would stop doing that. But America is under great influence of the Catholic church

Well we have some timeline issues (in the Gospels) with the actual time of that meal. But in this case when he said, "do this in memory of me" - he was referring to the bread and wine sharing at that moment. It was direct order in a manner of speaking...


Catholics are not the majority in the US. Its Protys by far greater numbers. Catholics 23%, Protys 51+

Why cant kids have some fun? As long as the irrelevancy of the hunt is explained, why cant kids have some fun?

Im not a literalistic, but its no wonder why kids leave the church. We let them take part of nonsense that a lie and tell them its for Jesus and tell them its just fun and when they learn the truth about the matter, they get pissed and leave the church all together.
