With the start of Spring we all can feel this new “energy” in air around us. It feels like things are starting over, like there is new beginning, fresh start. Everything is renewed, flowers and trees are blossoming, days are longer and after long and cold winter, the time has come to be “alive” again! With the beginning of Spring, one of the most celebrated holiday is upon us – Easter Holiday 2017.
What is Easter? What does it symbolize?
Easter has long celebrated the rebirth of nature, as Spring splashes her seeds and flower buds around the garden at this time.In earlier centuries, Easter marked the time for folks to wear new clothes, clean the home, sweep out winter’s dust, tend the garden, and strew dirt floors with aromatic herbs for warmth and cushioning.
The ancient Saxons in Northern Europe worshiped the Goddess Oestre at the time of the Spring Equinox. The Goddess Easter represents the sunrise, spring-time and fertility, the renewal of life.Pagan Anglo-Saxons made offerings of colored eggs to her at the Vernal Equinox. They placed them at graves, probably as a charm of rebirth. (Egyptians and Greeks were also known to place eggs at gravesites).
But for majority of population, Easter represents the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion.Remembering the resurrection of Jesus is a way to renew daily hope that we have victory over sin.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Easter? As a Christian, the first image might be the cross or the empty tomb. For the general public, a blitz of media images and merchandise on store shelves makes it more likely that the Easter Bunny comes to mind.There are several reasons for the rabbit, or hare, to be associated with Easter, all of which come through pagan celebrations of fertility and many offspring.
Next to the Easter bunny, the most familiar symbol is the Easter egg.Many Ancient cultures viewed eggs as a symbol of life. Hindus, Egyptians, Persians, and Phoenicians believed the world begun with an enormous egg. The Persians, Greeks, and Chinese gave gifts of eggs during spring festivals in celebration of new life all around them. Other sources say people ate dyed eggs at spring festivals in Egypt, Persia, Greece, and Rome. In ancient Druid lore, the eggs of serpents were sacred and stood for life.
Of all Easter symbols, the lamb is probably the most strongly Christian. Other than the fact that lambs are young animals born in springtime, it has no strong ties to pagan traditions.
The lamb came from the Jewish Passover, where each family killed a lamb as a sacrifice. When Christ became the Passover Lamb for everyone, the lamb became a symbol for His sacrifice.
The Easter lily is new addition to Easter celebrations. Throughout the years, painters and sculptors used the white Madonna lily to symbolize purity and innocence, frequently referring to Mary.Lilies, emerging from the earth in the spring, also symbolize new life and the resurrection of Christ.
