This may seem a little weird for a pagan to be wishing you a Happy Easter, but it can be said that the Christians arguably stole the holiday from us traditionalists centuries ago.
Easter eggs originated in pagan tradition, celebrated with the coming of spring by the festival of Ishtar or Oester, the goddess of fertility and represented by eggs and rabbits. Easter egg hunts were traditional during the festival of Ostara.
Christianity was an evangelical religion originating in the Middle East. As Christians brought their religion to the West, they needed to find methods to convince the pagans to convert to Christianity, so they changed the festivals to celebrate Christ but kept up the traditions of the pagans.
Since the Christians took over the calendar of festivals, it is just a coincidence this year that Easter follows the Spring Equinox so closely. This seems to be proof to me that the church wants to obscure observance of the natural (solar) calendar.
I hope you will forgive me for rubbing your nose in it, but we got here first!
