Ok, we arent talking about Romance languages. A great deal of modern English is Germanic and Anglo-Saxon in origin, including the word for the April holiday known as "Easter." The concept of Easter is different in different places, many of the Romance languages got the word from Latin and they had the more Semitic view of Easter. We, however, use the Anglo-Saxon "Easter" and consequently the Easter that we in the US celebrate is much more pagan in origin and practice.Sorry, it is older than the English language is. Look at languages like French and Spanish and you will see that the name of the holiday derives from the word for PASSOVER... shesh... the linguistically challenged strike again...
