I just read this article that says that in the U.S., shopping malls are trying to refrain from using the word “Easter” because they think it’s politically incorrect.
I think this is extremely ironic because Easter is actually a pagan holiday. It came from the word “Eostre”, which is the goddess of the dawn. And the traditions of the Easter Bunny and egg hunts come from a pagan holiday to worhip the fertility god “Ashereh” on the spring equinox, March 21st. (Read more about the history of Easter here.) So it seems that paganism is now politically correct, but Christianity is politically incorrect, even though the U.S. has a history of 400 years of Christian culture.
Anyway, here is the article that says that the word “Easter” is now politically incorrect (copied from this website):
[quote]It seems not even the Easter Bunny is innocuous enough to be safe from the politically correct campaign to eradicate all meaning from our culture. Since there is nothing particularly Christian about the Easter Bunny himself, he isn’t banned
