The Meaning of Easter

The real meaning of Easter is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. To Christians, it is the most special day of the year. The Lenten season leading up to Easter Sunday is a time of fasting, sacrifice and prayer. It is the Christian way of replicating in a small way what Christ sacrificed for us, both in his fasting and his final death on the cross. The word “Easter” comes for the Saxon pagan festival, honoring the goddess “Eastre” (also called Oestre). The goddess Eastre’s symbol is the rabbit. Easter also is celebrated with the Easter Bunny, colored eggs, jelly beans, and lots of chocolate.
