    We used to make an Easter tree (Paas boom), in which you hang colored eggs. But hard boiled eggs would be too heavy for that. We'd punch small holes in both sides of a raw egg, blow the inside out with a straw, and then paint them by hand. It was a lot of work, but the results were beautiful. Our tree wouldn't be as big as the one in the picture though. When they planted that tree, in 1965, they only needed 18 eggs. Now it's 10,000.

    You get an egg, and then you dip it in a coloring.

    Boil the eggs you get from the chicken's in your backyard for 25 min. Allow to cool for about 10 min. Place eggs in cups filled with warm water and aprox 5 drops of decorating colors. Allow to sit in color until desired color is reached then remove to let dry. Have the easter bunny (daddy) hid eggs in backyard then once found, use to make great egg salad sandwiches. LOL

    I boil the eggs, then get out my water color paint set.

    EDIT: Actually, I think it was something to do with Estrin (sp) and fertility rites, and so on.

    Yep! Easter Celibration was practiced for a couple thousand years before the "Cristians" borrowed it for their agenda...

    I think a little more research into pagan cultures themselves would benefit you in a way so you don't go around making remarks based in revisionist history aimed at giving the weak minded an excuse to attack Christians.

    No where in the Christian bible New Testement is the Word EASTER..Nor was it celibrated in the bible...


    I think maybe you are one of those brainwashed christians that refuse to believe the truth.. EASTER IS A PAGAN CELIBRATION.. It is you that needs to do some research and get your nose out of the bible..

    One of the oldest resurrection myths is Egyptian Horus. Born on 25 December, Horus and his damaged eye became symbols of life and rebirth. Mithras was born on what we now call Christmas day, and his followers celebrated the spring equinox. Even as late as the 4th century AD, the sol invictus, associated with Mithras, was the last great pagan cult the church had to overcome. Dionysus was a divine child, resurrected by his grandmother. Dionysus also brought his mum, Semele, back to life.

    In an ironic twist, the Cybele cult flourished on today's Vatican Hill. Cybele's lover Attis, was born of a virgin, died and was reborn annually. This spring festival began as a day of blood on Black Friday, rising to a crescendo after three days, in rejoicing over the resurrection. There was violent conflict on Vatican Hill in the early days of Christianity between the Jesus worshippers and pagans who quarrelled over whose God was the true, and whose the imitation. What is interesting to...

This spring festival began as a day of blood on Black Friday, rising to a crescendo after three days, in rejoicing over the resurrection. There was violent conflict on Vatican Hill in the early days of Christianity between the Jesus worshippers and pagans who quarrelled over whose God was the true, and whose the imitation. What is interesting to note here is that in the ancient world, wherever you had popular resurrected god myths, Christianity found lots of converts. So, eventually Christianity came to an accommodation with the pagan Spring festival. Although we see no celebration of Easter in the New Testament, early church fathers celebrated it, and today many churches are offering "sunrise services" at Easter – an obvious pagan solar celebration. The date of Easter is not fixed, but instead is governed by the phases of the moon – how pagan is that?

    All the fun things about Easter are pagan. Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare. Exchange of eggs is an ancient custom, celebrated by many cultures. Hot cross buns are very ancient too. In the Old Testament we see the Israelites baking sweet buns for an idol, and religious leaders trying to put a stop to it. The early church clergy also tried to put a stop to sacred cakes being baked at Easter. In the end, in the face of defiant cake-baking pagan women, they gave up and blessed the cake instead.

    Easter is essentially a pagan festival which is celebrated with cards, gifts and novelty Easter products, because it's fun and the ancient symbolism still works. It's always struck me that the power of nature and the longer days are often most felt in modern towns and cities, where we set off to work without putting on our car headlights and when our alarm clock goes off in the mornings, the streetlights outside are not still on because of the darkness.

    What better way to celebrate, than to bite the head off the bunny goddess, go to a "sunrise service", get yourself a sticky-footed fluffy chick and stick it on your TV, whilst helping yourself to a hefty slice of pagan simnel cake? Happy Easter everyone!

    More research outside of your little pagan blogosphere then. You know, the kind of research that will take you to things you don't want to hear about pagans. I should have been more clear. My apologies.

    I am not a pagan, and I dont care what they do or have done.. I just take history as it has been proven.. and that is ALL of the Christian stories were told centuries before this christ was made up,,, Same old stories just different names and times......It is not my fault that centuries ago, Religious nuts needed to invent stories to make stupid and gullible people believe them...I stopped believing in hocus pocus , santa , and the easter bunny when I was around 5 years old... Didnt take much intelligence even then to see it was all a scam and a bunch of lies......
