and taking out...remembering and knowing
the reason for Easter

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.
Lovely pictures and great display ideas for Easter.
Those chocolate bunnies are making my mouth water!
Happy Easter !
Now, I have to get up and work at putting together a beautiful Easter vignette. Thanks for the inspiration!
Gorgeous Easter displays - although if this were in my house the chocolate bunnies under the cloche would definitely have little nibbles on them. I missed your post on Pauline's garden - how truly exquisite. I just adore this kind of garden - full of romantic corners, stone, rusty iron, plants allowed to wander, not overly manicured or perfect. I will be visiting this post again and again. Have a wonderful Easter. X Sharon
Dear Colette, I really love the eggs decorated with vintage sheet music...and I can totally relate to all of the events surrounding Easter in the Liturgical calendar, being raised as a Catholic....your decorations are very whimsical and I especially appreciate that they have personal meaning.
I lost my Mother during Holy Week, a beautiful time of year, of resurrection and promise. Thank you for such an insightful post. N.xo
I love your ostrich eggs and will have to try that myself since they would look nice out anytime. You really put out the decorations and have put me to shame, time to get moving! Your vignettes are wonderful!
Thank you Colette for this reminder to prepare some Easter decoration, such a lovely time to bring some fresh colour into the house.
I just read your back post about deconsrtucted chairs, you have some wonderful pieces there!
It is refreshing to read someone who understands and still observes the lenten and Easter liturgical traditions.
I wish you a thoughtful Holy week, and a glorious Easter.
Truly wonderful layout of these decorative items. Also wonderful vintage postcards ... I wish you a Happy Easter...
