Lent, Ashes, Easter, Rabbits and Eggs - What's it all about?
Garner Ted Armstrong & Eugene M Walter

Just what is "Easter"? What does the name mean? Have you ever wondered why you believe and practice certain customs at Easter time. You'll be surprised to find the plain truth about Easter!

The name didn't bother us especially. It seemed to rhyme with "yeast" or perhaps have something to do with a direction like "east." But everyone seemed to figure it was mighty important to pay it some special attention, and, being normal people who were inclined to get starry-eyed over brightly lit candy counters, it probably seemed like a good idea at the time.
