With Easter around thought of sharing some Easter goodies, Easter recipe ideas and some Easter history. As there are lot of people unaware as what to make during Easter. Also people ask me what’s Easter what you do on Easter? I will try answering all your questions on Easter. Also there are questions like what is Easter Egg? why it’s in a basket. What are other Easter Recipes? So let’s see some Easter Recipe Ideas 🙂
To begin with Easter is preceded by lent of 40 days of fasting, prayer and penance. The last week of Lent is called holy week. It consist of Maundy Thursday and The Last Supper, as well as Good Friday. Christians commemorate Good Friday as the the day Jesus Christ died and Easter Sunday as the day he was resurrected. Easter is Jesus rebirth hence celebrated with joy everywhere!
What are Easter Bunnies Or Easter Eggs? This tradition began long ago. The custom of an Easter egg hunt began because children believed that hares laid eggs in the grass. The Romans believed that “All life comes from an egg.” Christians consider eggs to be “the seed of life” and so they are symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Egg Rolling is also a traditional Easter egg game played with eggs at Easter. In the United Kingdom, Germany, and other countries children traditionally rolled eggs down hillsides at Easter. This tradition was taken to the Newworld by European settlers and continues to this day each Easter on the White House lawn.
The oldest tradition is to use dyed or painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery such as jelly beans. These eggs can be hidden for children to find on Easter morning, who may be told they were left by the Easter Bunny. They also may be put in a basket filled with real or artificial straw to resemble a bird’s nest.
