Every single human person is loved by God and created to love by Him, this is a fundamental belief of our faith.
For the customs of the people are vain.
Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: This is a major problem for us, because we are Bible Christians. The great and dreadful God of the Bible demands worship exactly as He has commanded.
He will not tolerate additions or deletions, no matter how innocent, noble, popular, or sincere. If you doubt this, ask Cain about his offering, Nadab and Abihu about contemporary worship, Moses about striking a rock, or David about moving the Ark of the Covenant on a new ox cart.

The name is derived from Eostre, the name of a goddess whose festival was celebrated at the vernal equinox; her name shows that she was originally the dawn-goddess.
In pagan times an annual spring festival was held in her honor. The date gives it away as evil. The date for Easter is always hard to figure out, so you have to turn to a calendar to see which Sunday it falls on for a given year.
There is a simple reason for this confusion. The pagans observed festivals at the vernal equinox, which was and is considered the first day of spring, when the length of the day and the length of the night are equal, as the sun climbs in the sky of the northern hemisphere.
In AD, Emperor Constantine of the Roman Empire, presiding over the large church council at Nicea, set the date as the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.
