Easter Sunday is on April 21 this year. I'm having fun preparing personalized Easter baskets for my loved ones! 🧺
Easter is a Christian festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, 3 days after He was crucified by the Romans. Easter concludes "The Passion of Christ"'s commemoration which begins with a 40-day fast before Easter and culminates in the Holy Week. Holy Thursday (Jesus' Last Supper) and Good Friday (Jesus' Crucifixion) are the highlights of the Holy Week, crescendoing into Easter Sunday.
What's the connection between Jesus' Resurrection and the Easter bunny and eggs, though? It's the outcome of people's merging two celebrations into one over the centuries. In ancient cultures before Christ, Easter was known as the spring equinox, when the dark days of winter gave way to the sunny days of spring. They prayed to the goddess of spring and fertility, Eostre (sounds like Easter!) for a bountiful harvest. 🌸
Eostre was depicted as holding a basket in her arms. The rabbit and egg have traditionally been symbols of fertility and new life. Candies symbolize the sweetness of life and joy. Combining them all together, we now have the Easter basket tradition celebrating Jesus' Resurrection, spring, and new life. 🌼
