Easter is coming! You can tell it’s close – tulips are blooming and colorful, candy-filled Easter baskets now line the walls of our favorite super markets. It’s time to start thinking about Easter dresses and bonnets for the kids, preparing for communitywide egg hunts, and inviting loved ones to Easter dinner. With all these tasks in mind, it’s easy to focus on our ever-growing to-do list rather than what Easter is primarily about. So, before we start stressing out about having the perfect Easter celebration, let’s dive in to what it means to observe this beautiful, life-giving holiday.
People celebrate this holiday according to their religious beliefs. Christians honor Good Friday April 14th – as the day that Jesus Christ died and Easter Sunday April 17th – as the day that he was resurrected. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter and the day Jesus arrived in Jerusalem.
