Easter: World celebrates Christian festival of resurrection of Jesus from the dead
On April 21 this year, Christians are going to celebrate Easter festival. Easter Sunday commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is one of the most important festivals of the Christians. According to Christian scripture, Jesus was resurrected from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion and is observed two days after Good Friday.

Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of fasting, prayer and penance. Easter is a moveable feast.

Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts have become part of the holiday's modern celebrations and are organised by many Christians now. Many Christians observe the religious aspects of Easter by attending Sunday Mass in the morning and a feast in the afternoon.

Here are some quotes on the Easter Sunday.

  • Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless- Charles M Crowe.
  • It is the hour to rend thy chains, the blossom time of souls- Katherine Lee Bates.
  • Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, "Christ is risen," but "I shall rise" -Phillips Brooks.
  • On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer- Douglas Horton.
  • The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances- Robert Flatt.
  • We live and die; Christ died and lived! -John Stott. 

Here is my acrostic on EASTER: E: Execution of Jesus Christ by crucifixion / A: Actuality became Jesus's resurrection he was sighted in several public places after burial / S: 'Son of God' - the way Jesus got accepted after resurrection / T: Transition from death to life ? that's what the event symbolises / E: Easter eggs represent the beginning of life / R: Resurrection happened on Sunday that followed the crucification executed on Friday.

Easter Eggs represent the beginning of life while rabbits and chicks represent the rebirth of the earth. Besides, the Easter Lily is a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
