Micheal Medved said one thing about Easter is it cannot be turned into a secular holiday (like Christmas can). Its about the resurrection, pure and simple. He also said Passover is the same way – its about the divine intervention on behalf of God’s people against the pagans – involving the blood of the lamb. So in their own way both Judaism and Christianity are about the blood of the lamb saving presumably guilty, but loved and claimed, people from a horrible fate. There is no secular version of this.
