Western Festival: Easter


First, let's start with the origins of Easter. Easter is an important Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It is said that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion and proved through his resurrection that he was God's Son and Savior. Easter is usually held in the spring, because spring represents new life and revival, and also symbolizes the resurrection of Jesus.

As for Easter food, in the 18th and 19th centuries, the British had a strange tradition of making snacks called "Easter cookies" during Easter. The cookies are usually made with spices and fruit and then decorated with Easter patterns. However, these cookies are usually so hard that one has to break them open with a hammer to taste the sweetness inside. Fortunately, modern Easter cookies are usually softer and easier to eat.

Eggs are an important symbol of Easter. But what you may not know is that their origins can be traced back to ancient pagan beliefs. In many ancient cultures, eggs are regarded as a symbol of life and new life. In Christianity, the egg symbolizes the miracle of Jesus' resurrection from the dead. Therefore, people usually decorate Easter eggs with various colors and patterns to celebrate the arrival of Easter.

The Easter Bunny is also an important element in Easter tradition. In Christianity, rabbits are seen as a symbol of new life because they usually breed in the spring, symbolizing revival. Therefore, it is common to combine eggs with the Easter bunny to celebrate the coming of spring and the resurrection of Jesus.
