Easter - ćwiczenia leksykalne, praca z tekstem

EASTER
In Christian countries Easter is celebrated as a religious holiday which commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the son of God. But the celebrations of Easter have many customs and legends that are pagan in origin and, in fact, have nothing to do with Christianity. It is believed, for example, that the name of the holiday itself – EASTER - comes from the Scandinavian "Ostra" and the Teutonic "Ostern" or "Eastre," . Both names of mythological Goddesses signify spring and fertility whose festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox (21st March). Easter can also refer to the season of the church year, lasting for fifty days, which follows this holiday and ends at Pentecost.
