Easter Today 4 April 2021 know significance history celebrations of Christian festival easter
Easter Sunday: Today is Easter Sunday …! The Sunday following Good Friday is special for Christians around the world. But this year, like last year, the corona is on Easter Sunday. Three days before Easter, on Good Friday, Jesus was crucified. This is the time when the Lord Jesus died. But on Sunday, just three days after the incident, Jesus was born again. Easter Sunday is celebrated as a celebration of that birth. Easter falls on the first Sunday after the full moon appears for the first time since March 21 without a fixed date each year. This year, the festival is celebrated on Sunday, April 4.
What is the reason behind celebrating this festival?
Easter is the Christian holiday of the resurrection. According to Christian belief, Jesus Christ rose from the dead on this day and was resurrected. According to the New Testament, Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday and was resurrected on Sunday, three days later. This day marks the end of the 40-day Lent period.
The week of Easter is known as Holy Week. The last three days are Maundya Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. The next Sunday is Easter. The date of Easter varies from year to year, as Easter, the first Sunday after the full moon of the Spring, was decided at a meeting of Christian bishops in 325 AD. Some say that Easter is celebrated instead of Passover. This is because the word Easter is used to describe the Passover in many European languages. Among Protestants, those who come are greeted as ‘the Lord has risen,’ while others respond as ‘Yes, indeed, the Lord has risen.’
The practice of decorating Easter eggs
In some countries it is customary to decorate Easter eggs. The egg symbolizes the empty tomb without Jesus. Eggs are very important in Easter. Eggs are understood to symbolize the beginning of a new life. The idea is to decorate the eggs so that the Lord is pleased to rise from the grave. On this day the egg shell is decorated in a colorful attractive manner.
