easter vs passover (general)

posted by Ray(R), Ontario, Canada, 03.17.2008

My understanding is that Easter is basically a holiday based on mythology. Around 300 AD it was decided to celebrate the resurrection on a pagan holiday to help converts understand Christianity better. Until then there was no Christian Easter celebration, only Passover. Church decrees were issued ordering Christian believers to stop celebrating Passover and celebrate Easter to remove themselves from their Jewish roots. Jesus was crucified and was resurrected during the Passover week celebrations, not Easter. Would it not then make more sense to celebrate Passover and not Easter?
