2005-03-27T03:28:21+00:00Easter is the first holiday of spring and for most of us it symbolizes the reawakening of the earth after a long winter. The origins of many of our Easter traditions date back to pagan times and the rituals associated with the coming of spring. Some of the symbols associated with Easter are the Easter bunny, which represents fertility, and Easter eggs, which originally were painted bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring. Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the most important feast in the Christian calendar. The churches are filled with worshipers, the altars are decorated with flowers, and the music proclaims the joy of the season.
