What is Easter?

Easter eggs symbolize rebirthEaster Sunday is on March 31, 2013, this year, and Good Friday is on March 29th. Next to Christmas, Easter is the biggest Christian celebration of the year. Easter brings love, hope, and renewal.

Easter is a Christian celebration to honor the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus died on Good Friday, and rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, to give Christians eternal life.

The rebirth of Christ at Easter coincides with the renewal of nature in the season of spring. A sense of renewed hope blooms, along with the purple and yellow flowers.

Easter is a time to reflect on God’s love. God gave his only begotten son so believers could have everlasting life. It is a “count your blessings” season, a time of forgiveness, as Jesus forgave those who crucified him on the cross.

The symbols of Easter are: candles to symbolize that Jesus is the light of the world. Eggs are an endearing Easter symbol, as birds hatch from them like the resurrected Christ, who arose from the tomb. For centuries, eggs have been dyed and decorated to celebrate the occasion. In the west, the mythical Easter Bunny gives chocolate Easter eggs to children in baskets filled with Easter grass, resembling a bird’s nest.

Easter is an uplifting season that is celebrated by going to church, or staying at home for a traditional dinner of ham or turkey. Non Christians enjoy the holiday from school or work as well. In Canada, Good Friday is a statuatory holiday, and Easter Monday is a union holiday.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday filled with faith, hope and love, whatever you decide to do.
