Easter falls on April 12. This religious holiday is celebrated by Christians around the world. In Christian belief, this is the celebration of the day of resurrection of Jesus. The date of Easter changes from year to year. The reason for this change is that Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. Easter will be celebrated on April 4th in 2021.
As is common with the majority of holidays, Easter also comes with a changing of the seasons. Spring is symbolic to the coming back to life by the plants and trees that have been dormant for the winter. Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere look forward to warmer weather and an increase in more daylight. This symbolism of the coming back to life is a correlation to the resurrection of Jesus.
History indicates that the name “Easter” was derived from the name of a goddess in England by the name of Eostre. This reference can be found in the writings of the Venerable Bede. He was a seventh and early eighth century British monk.
“Bede wrote that the month in which English Christians were celebrating the resurrection of Jesus had been called Eosturmonath in Old English, referring to a goddess named Eostre. And even though Christians had begun affirming the Christian meaning of the celebration, they continued to use the name of the goddess to designate the season.”
His writings were so influential that later Christians adopted and kept the name Easter. It is recognized by that name by the English, Germans and Americans who celebrate this resurrection.
Those of the Jewish faith refer to this time as Passover. The Hebrew Bible commemorates Passover as a festival which celebrates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. This is referenced in the Book of Exodus. During the time of Jesus, Jewish pilgrims flocked to Jerusalem in hope that God would liberate them from the Romans. On one Passover, Jesus traveled to Jerusalem and the resulting disturbance in the Temple ultimately led to his crucifixion.
In early America, the Easter festival was more celebrated by Catholics than Protestants. The Puritans of New England considered both Easter and Christmas as festivals for heavy drinking and merrymaking. However, by the 19th century this belief had changed and the holidays became a time to spend joyous moments with family. Today customary traditions of Easter Egg Hunting, Parades and the Easter Bunny have become the norm.
