Easter is another key date that is celebrated in the Christian calendar. Unlike Christmas Day, when the event is celebrated on the 25th December every year, Easter Day is dependent on the full moon between the 22nd March and 25th April. This isn’t just a one-day celebration; it is a seven-day event, with the key days being Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and of course Easter Sunday.
Palm Sunday has been and gone, but plays a significant part in Holy Week as it is when Jesus arrived on a donkey to Jerusalem and palm branches were being thrown at him. Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter, which is coincidently today and was Jesus’ last super with his Apostles, before his crucifixion. This is when Jesus broke some bread, handed it to his disciples and said “this is my body which is given for you”. Red wine was also shared between the Apostles and was a symbol of Jesus’ blood. Both the bread and the red wine are iconic symbols and represent the Holy Communion we know today.
Good Friday, as we all know, was the day that Jesus was crucified on a cross. Many people around the world will have a day of mourning in Church to remember this significant event. Easter Day isn’t just about eating those delicious chocolate eggs, but celebrating the resurrection of Jesus and life itself. This is probably the most important date in the Christian diary and religion.
After the crucifixion, Jesus’ body was taken down from the cross and buried in a cave. His tomb was guarded and protected with a giant stone so no one could steal the body. However, not even an enormous stone could prevent the following from happening. On the following Sunday, women visited the tomb, but had a shock with what they were about to discover. The body was gone and the stone had been moved. How could this have happened? The impossible was made possible. Jesus’ disciples had realised that his body had been raised from the dead, by God. The Christian religion is separated into smaller religions such as Orthodox, a religion that doesn’t always celebrate Easter on the same day.
The Orthodox religion follows the astronomical full moon (the Julian calendar), whereas the Catholics and Protestants follow the official moon. This means, they celebrate Easter normally a week later. On Easter, the Greek Orthodox community dye the eggs red, to symbolise Jesus’ blood whilst on the cross and the rebirth of life. The Holiest day of the week is Good Friday, where no one works, including cooking meals and the Church bells will ring throughout the day. The Saturday before Easter is known as ‘Good Holy Saturday’ and is the day where the food for Easter Sunday is prepared. It is traditional to eat lamb and drink wine and ouzo!
We hope you all have a great Easter and enjoy those delicious chocolate Easter eggs!
I had a reading with Teya today. I was blown away by her understanding of my current situation. She made some very positive predictions and advice. I look forward to the outcome. Teya has a lovely warm personality and it radiates in her voice. Towards the end of the reading at my request she brought through some family members who passed over. I found her descriptions and messages spot on! I would love to connect with her again. Many thanks.
