Happy Easter Sunday
I just want to drop by and wish everybody a Happy Easter Sunday.
Hope everybody is taking the time to enjoy family and friends on this day and you taking the kids for a little egg hunt.
Do you know that preceding Easter Sunday is a 40 day season of lent which began on Ash Wednesday and concludes at midnight on Saturday before Easter Sunday?
Do you know the Symbols of Easter and where they come from?
The cross is the symbol of the Crucifixion. The Cross is not only a symbol of Easter but is widely used by the Catholic Church, as a year around symbol as to their faith.
The white lily symbolized the Resurrection and is associated with reproduction.
The Easter Bunny
If you know me then you know I am a German. I remember this tradition and still keeping it until today. Easter bunny stays as an earthy symbol. The Germans brought the symbol of the Easter rabbit to America. The Easter bunny was ignored by other Christians until after the Civil War while Easter was not celebrated in America until after that time.
The Easter Egg
The exchange of Easter eggs was first celebrated by Christians. The egg is a symbol of rebirth in most cultures.
Today children hunt colored eggs, plastic eggs filled with surprises, chocolate and candy. It is always a fun time, and I love the bright eyes of my daughter if she founds the hidden eggs and easter basket. We still celebrate after the old tradition and welcome spring in our home.
The day will be ended with a great Easter Dinner with several courses, and we enjoy each other’s company at our Happy Easter Sunday after a busy easter egg hunt.
I wish everybody Happy Easter Sunday.
