Q: Why doesn't the article explain that Easter is 100% pagan because "Easter" is derived from "Ishtar"?
A: Need summary from Ishtar not debunked here, Censorship of Pagan origins, Ishtar Easter, and articles on Alexander Hyslop and The Two Babylons.

Agree. We've had this appearing on Maundy Thursday and Last Supper as well—reverted as unsourced, of course. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 02:49, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

The 17th century Russian icon of the Resurrection is in fact Bulgarian, as can be seen in the details here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:17th-century_unknown_painters_-_The_Resurrection_of_Christ_-_WGA23478.jpg or here http://www.wga.hu/html_m/m/master/zunk_y/13icon.html Peter Vlahov (talk) 12:13, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

there's a markup mistake: after passover, there should be two "'", but there is only one. Quote: derives from the Hebrew ''pesach'', ''passover'.|date= 20 January 1998}}

Julian Easter date for 2025 is incorrect[edit]

In 2025, Gregorian Easter and Julian Easter are on the same date, April 20. http://www.orthodoxchristian.info/pages/Pascha_dates.htm The WCC referenced page incorrectly says that the Julian date for Easter is May 20. This is wrong, both the Julian and the Gregorian Easter must fall on a Sunday. May 20, 2025 is a Tuesday.

This page has the correct date for 2025 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dates_for_Easter Wynnac (talk) 21:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
