The most popular symbol of the egg we know today would be the Easter egg. Easter eggs came from the absurd legend of queen Semiramis in ancient Egypt. The legend states that she ascended from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River. This was to have happened at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox. Semiramis became known as “Ishtar” which is pronounced “Easter” in the English language, and her moon egg became known as “Ishtar’s” egg.” The truth is, that Easter has nothing whatsoever to do with the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We also know that Easter can be as much as three weeks away from the Passover, because the pagan holiday is always set as the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox. Some have wondered why the word “Easter” is in the the King James Bible. It is because Acts, chapter 12, tells us that it was the evil King Herod, who was planning to celebrate Easter, and not the Christians. The true Passover and pagan Easter sometimes coincide, but in some years, they are a great distance apart.
So much more could be said, and I have much more information for you, if you are a seeker of the truth.
