I love Easter! I love that it signifies the changing of the season, from the harshness of winter to the lushness of spring. I love the colors of Easter; pastel blue, green, pink and purple. I love the thoughts of fuzzy bunnies and cute little chicks. I especially enjoy all of the wonderfully delicious chocolate candy that lines the center aisle of the grocery store. I love to see families all dressed up in their Easter Sunday best!
Traditionally I have purchased a new outfit for just this occasion. I have many memories of dyeing hard-boiled eggs, filling baskets with fake grass, chocolate bunnies, sweet marshemellowy peeps and trinkets. I have eaten my share of baked ham, potato salad and stuffed eggs for Easter Sunday dinner. And I have hidden and hunted dozens upon dozens of easter eggs.
I enjoy Easter but I celebrate Resurrection Sunday!
The reason Christians celebrate the Easter season is to commemorate Jesus’ death on the cross. Through His death, burial and resurrection, He paid the penalty for our sins, therefore purchasing for all who believe in Him eternal life in Christ Jesus.
Why I choose to celebrate? I believe!!!
On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
