And just like that Easter is here!
THE ORIGINS OF EASTER
Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the son of God so for Christians its kind of a big deal. It’s considered a Holy Week as Christians reflect on Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. It’s not a glamorous story, it’s kind of somber with gory details but it indeed does have a happy ending. Jesus makes heaven a possibility for those who believe.
These days, not everyone who celebrates Easter is Christian…hence the way Easter is celebrated is different. The focus is on the Easter Bunny…a giant rabbit that lays chocolate eggs…kind of unrealistic and interesting…but fun…because who doesnt like chocolate.
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU
Whether you are waiting for a giant bunny to deliver chocolate eggs or attending a somber Good Friday service, weather your hiding chocolates and candies all over the back yard or hosting an Easter brunch after church we hope you enjoy this Easter weekend! May it be full of savory snacks and sweet surprises, weather it comes in the form of a foil wrapped chocolate egg or a risen savior!
