For a lot of families the Easter weekend means a visit to church. Easter marks the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is an important part of the Christian liturgical calender.
Easter eggs, also called Paschal eggs are decorated eggs that are often given to celebrate Easter or springtime. As such, Easter eggs are common during the season of Eastertide (Easter season). The oldest tradition is to use dyed and painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery such as jelly beans. Eggs, in general, were a traditional symbol of fertility, and rebirth. In Christianity, for the celebration of Eastertide, Easter eggs symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus: though an egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb, a bird hatches from it with life; similarly, the Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.
I wish to take this special time to wish you all a very blessed and Happy Easter and for those who will be travelling over the long weekend, please be patient on the roads and I wish you safe travels.
Enjoy your Easter Eggs on Easter Sunday everyone.
LOVE AND LIGHT Cherz. x
