FACTS ABOUT EASTER CELEBRATIONS

Glory to God in the Highest, Christ Jesus is alive! 

Christ is Risen!!

HE LIVES!!! 

Easter is the religious celebration commemorating the resurrection of Christ, observed in the Christian churches today. By the first Christian, it was considered to continue the feast of the Passover, at which the paschal lamb, a symbol of Christ, was sacrificed. Hence, its name in Greek, French, and other Roman languages is taken from Hebrew “Pesach” = Passover. The English name comes from the Anglo-Saxon “Eastre” – a goddess of light or spring, whose festival was celebrated in April.

  There was a long dispute in the Christian church as to the proper time for holding Easter, the Christian of the East celebrating it on the same day as that in which the Jewish Passover fell, that is, the 14th of Nissan, while the majority of the churches celebrated it on Sunday next after this day. The controversay was decided by the Council of Nice in 325 A.D., which fixed Easter on the first Sunday after the full moon, which happens on a Sunday. Easter is the Sunday after, properly speaking, “full moon” – meaning the 14th day after the moon.

EASTER never occurs before March 22nd, or after April 25th.

  3. I’m glad someone else know when Easter is: The Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Solstice! The full moon was so beautiful last night! This is a great post.

    I believe you have ESP. You always come by at just the right time to share you uplifting caring words with me! Thank you for your continued support and knee-mail.

    I have something for you at my place: http://mercedesrules.wordpress.com/2008/03/18/yummy-blog-award/

  4. BTW~In 1982, 1993, & 2004 I celebrated my birthday on Easter.

  5. Oh~another question: Do you have a blog somewhere else? I am thinking I should know this, but if you do I would like to visit you more often.

    Love Ya!

  6. That’s pretty cool, your birthday fell on those Easter Sundays. Two fantastic events celebrated!

    I don’t have another blog. Gee willickers girlfriend, I can hardly find time to post on this one. LOL! I’m just not much of a blogger as you can see, but I do enjoy communicating with others in this manner. I love the heart of people through words. For me, I just am not one to commit to a computer all that much. I have so much life I’m trying to live before I go upstairs. I did live on the computer at one time, but I freed myself from that habit. Anywho, I enjoy our visits. So glad I “met” you and Patch!

  7. I forgot to say thank you to all of you very fine ladies for your lovely and meaningful posts. Thanks for visiting! Hope your Easter was all you wanted it to be. Mine was wonderful.
