Easter Sunday is round the corner & all of us are preparing to celebrate the occasion. Easter will be celebrated this year on 20th April 2014. It is celebrated every year, all round the world, to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ on third day after he was crucified on Good Friday. It is one of the most important festivals celebrated by Christians.
Easter derives its name from Eostre, a Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility. The celebrations usually start from one week leading to the Easter starting with the Palm Sunday. This day marks the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem where people in hoards greeted him. The famous Last Supper happened a day before the Good Friday. People celebrate this day by sharing bread & wine with each other, with a promise to spread love & compassion.
Since very early days of the church, eggs have had a major significance in Easter. They are used as a symbol to represent the empty tomb. It is a reminder that Jesus will rise from his tomb and bring new life. It is also a symbol of ‘fertility’, ‘rebirth’ and ‘the beginning’; a phoenix burns its nest to be reborn later from the egg that is left. The outside of the egg looks dead but inside there is new life, which is going to break out. People dye boiled eggs red to represent the blood of Christ shed for the sins of the world.
People celebrate Easter is numerous rejoicing ways. Churches see the most attendance for a prayer on the Easter Sunday. Churches distribute crosses made up of palm leaves on this day. They sing joyful hymns remembering the Lord. People visit & greet each other, exchanging gifts & sweetened eggs. Hunting for Easter eggs is the most common activity performed & enjoyed by people. Many buy & wear new clothes for the occasion, since it signifies new life. Parades are also organized in many parts of the world, which display events that happened with Jesus from Palm Sunday to Easter.
