Explore Potential Ways to Celebrate your Easter

By: chaman goyal

Easter is a festival of gifts for children and for all other age groups. Children desperately wait for the day and then when the day arrives, they seek their gifts in the morning. In many Christian communities such as America, the tradition of Easter bunny leaving gifts for children is a common motif. Throughout the world Easter is celebrated on different dates and days according to their corresponding calendars. Common Easter gift includes Easter hats, candy, cards and chocolates. Children wear the beautifully decorated Easter hats and go on in processions. These days, the hat has all kinds of themes such as flowers, trees, Jesus, bible, cartoon characters computers, mobile phones and what not. Easter hat is one of the most traditional crafts and so enjoys themes from not just one generation, but from over the period of these 2000 years.

Easter banners for churches and for the purpose of worship are in great demand during the Easter days. To praise the Lord and to spread the light of His love to all the human beings these banners are used. Easter banners can be as small as a palm, and as large as a hallway or a lobby. Easter bunnies and eggs are amongst the favourite themes for the banner. To adorn a church, a gallery or a sanctuary these banners are depicted with several colours and several other themes. Easter is a fest which by default falls on Sundays which is a holiday world over. And Good Friday is a holiday in most parts of the world, with a good toll of Christian communities. Easter vacation basically includes these two days. But to explain the falling of an Easter day each year needs a rigorous calculation. This is because it depends on the belief that Easter falls somewhere during the full moon and an equinox which occurs in spring. But by common belief and calculations it is supposed to occur on the first Sunday after the ecclesiastical full moon. And this period occurs somewhere around March of 21st. Easter 2012 is predicted to be on 8th April 2012.

Easter is in some parts of United States even more related to the faiths of Christians than is Christmas. Therefore most of the people in America like to enjoy a long vacation during Easter season. Easter season stretches from the day of Easter Sunday to Pentecost. Pentecost is Whit Sunday or can be defined as the descent of the trinity and Holy Spirit during the times of Jesus’s resurrection. Easter forms the most traditional period for the people who have strong faith on Christianity. Jesus resurrection and his birth are two important events in the history of Christianity. And these events are described by the gospels written by four of Jesus followers namely Mark, Luke, Mathew and John. All the four gospels depict a great part of similarity in the events; however at few times they also exude contradictions. The flavour of Easter however remains intact and brings in together love and life to all the Christians whether they manifest faith in Jesus or not. And for kids, it is undoubtedly the most enjoyable period.
