Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all that celebrate. Today is the Christian celebration of Jesus Christ rising from the dead. Which provides them with the offering of everlasting hope. The actual word Easter is derived from the Saxon pagan festival that honors the Goddess “Eastre” (also called Oestre). This Goddess is represented by a rabbit. This holiday is celebrated with decorations of the Easter Bunny colored and decorated eggs, jellybeans and tots of chocolate.

A popular and fun activity is the Easter Egg hunt. Also decorating with easter Lilies. This holiday changes every year. It falls on the first Sunday after the full moon following the spring equinox. Or you can always look at a calendar.
