Ever wonder just what fluffy bunnies, candy peeps or pastel colored eggs have to do with Jesus? The answer just might surprise you.

Since most of the customs used in connection with Easter have pagan origins, I prefer to celebrate the death of Jesus Christ rather than his resurrection. The Bible says that Jesus himself commanded his followers to commemorate his death, not his resurrection.
Luke 22: 19, 20: “Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “This means my body which is to be given in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” Verse 20: “Also, the cup in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf.”
This commemoration takes place annually on Nisan 14 of the ancient Hebrew calendar.
What do you think? Does it really matter what the Bible says?
