Happy Easter



Easter is the most important Christian religious holiday and widely regarded as the second most popular festival.Easter  is celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary (Good Friday).

 Easter is the culmination of the Passion of Christ, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance Easter begins with Great Lent, which starts on Clean Monday and lasts for 40 continuous days  The last week of Great Lent (following the fifth Sunday of Great Lent) is called Palm Week, and ends with Lazarus Saturday. The Vespers which begins Lazarus Saturday officially brings Great Lent to a close, although the fast continues through the following week. After Lazarus Saturday comePalm SundayHoly Week, and finally Easter itself, and the fast is broken immediately after the Paschal Divine Liturgy.

Belief 

According to Scripture(Bible), that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter. Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for all who believe in him, eternal life in Christ Jesus.

Tradition of Giving Easter Eggs-

The custom of giving eggs at Easter celebrates new life. Christians remember that Jesus, after dying on the cross, rose from the dead. They believe that, through his resurrection, Jesus defeated death and sin and offers people the promise of eternal life if they follow his teachings.These eggs are painted in bright colors to give them further meaning as a gift.



They are all symbols of rebirth and the Lamb was a traditional religious sacrifice.Easter falls in the spring, the yearly time of renewal, when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word Easter comes to us from the Norsemen’s Eostur, Easter, Ostara, and Ostar, and the pagan goddess Eostre, all of which involve the season of the growing sun and new birth. The Easter Bunny arose originally as a symbol of fertility, due to the rapid reproduction habits of the hare and rabbit. 
That’s the reason one offer Easter Eggs to dear ones.
