is a Christian themed page, focusing on symbols of Easter. In
Christianity, Easter, (the Sunday of the Resurrection, Pascha, or
Resurrection Day), is the most important religious feast of the
Christian liturgical year, observed at some point between late March
and late April each year (early April to early May in Eastern
Christianity), following the cycle of the moon. It celebrates the
resurrection of Jesus, which Christians believe occurred on the third
day of his death by crucifixion some time in the period AD 27 to 33.

depends on Passover not only for much of its symbolic meaning but also
for its position in the calendar: the Last Supper shared by Jesus and
his disciples before his crucifixion is generally thought of as a
Passover meal, based on the chronology in the Gospels.
before Easter is very special in the Western Christian tradition: the
Sunday before is Palm Sunday, and the last three days before Easter are
Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday
(sometimes referred to as Silent Saturday). Palm Sunday, Maundy
Thursday and Good Friday respectively commemorate Jesus' entry in
Jerusalem, the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Holy Thursday,
Good Friday, and Holy Saturday are sometimes referred to as the Easter
Triduum (Latin for "Three Days"). In some countries, Easter lasts
two days, with the second called "Easter Monday." The week
beginning with Easter Sunday is called Easter Week or the Octave of
Easter, and each day is prefaced with "Easter," e.g. Easter Monday,
Easter Tuesday, etc. Easter Saturday is therefore the Saturday
after Easter Sunday. The day before Easter is properly called
Holy Saturday. Many churches start celebrating Easter late in the
evening of Holy Saturday at a service called the Easter Vigil.
believe that Jesus accepted crucifixion on a cross for the benefit of
all people. This belief is at the heart of all Christian
teachings and consequently the cross symbol is used by the majority of
Christians all over the world. The cross also reminds Christians
of Jesus' victory over death, since it is believed that through
His death and resurrection He conquered death itself.
called the "white-robed apostles of hope," lilies were found growing in
the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ's agony. Tradition has it
that the beautiful white lilies sprung up where drops of Christ's sweat
fell to the ground in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress.
Churches continue this tradition at Easter time by banking their
alters and surrounding their crosses with masses of Easter Lilies, to
commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and hope of life
