GOOD JEWISH BOY
The Daily Beast – Happy Easter, Which is Not Named After Ishtar, Okay? – “…Ishtar was associated with fertility and sex. However, her symbols were the lion, the gate and the eight-pointed star; I can’t find any evidence of eggs or rabbits symbolically belonging to her. And Easter has nothing to do with her.
Most scholars believe that Easter gets its name from Eostre or Ostara, a Germanic pagan goddess. English and German are two of the very few languages that use some variation of the word Easter (or, in German, Ostern) as a name for this holiday. Most other European languages use one form or another of the Latin name for Easter, Pascha, which is derived from the Hebrew Pesach, meaning Passover.
. . . But at its roots Easter (which is pronounced Ishtar) was all about celebrating fertility and sex.” Sounds like an Adam kind of holiday (the sex part, at least!)
