finding images of Easter vignettes
using the same Easter "props" every year
just displayed differently...
for we love opening the drawer
and taking out...remembering and knowing
the reason for Easter
Ostrich eggs decorated with vintage sheet music
I collect old bon bon boxes in duck egg colors
this weekend, reflecting on upcoming Easter
Easter is the central feast in the Christian liturgical year. According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion . His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day or Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday).
The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to have occurred between AD 26 and 36.
Easter marks the end of Lent , a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.
The last week of the Lent is called Holy Week, and it contains Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus.
Easter is followed by a fifty-day period called Easter tide or the Easter Season, ending with Pentecost Sunday.
Easter is a movable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendarThe First Council of Nicaea established the date of Easter as the first Sunday after the full moon following the northern hemisphere's vernal equinox.
Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar.
Easter customs vary across the Christian world, but decorating Easter eggs is a common motif. In the Western world, customs such as egg hunting and the Easter Bunny extend from the domain of church, and often have a secular character.
