Easter is one of the principal holidays, or feasts, of Christianity, it marks the resurrection of Jesus three days after his death by crucifixion.
For many Christian churches, Easter is the joyful end to the Lenten season of fasting.
“That terrible Friday” of Jesus’ crucifixion has been changed to Good Friday because it led to the resurrection of Jesus and his victory over death and sin and then so to the celebration of Easter.
The use of ‘Good’ in the name Good Friday, is used in the context of the Old English word for holy, so it really means holy Friday.
The Easter bunny and Easter eggs and chicks originated as pagan symbols of spring new life and rebirth, and it’s thought that this is why they became a part of our Easter celebrations.
Daffodils are a traditional Easter flower and are associated with the season of spring and signify new beginnings and rebirth. This makes it the perfect Easter flower as it signifies where the occasion came from, the death and resurrection of Jesus.
A hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun usually made with fruit, marked with a cross on the top, the cross represents the crucifixion of Jesus, and has been traditionally eaten on Good Friday.
