It means to me that Jesus Christ died for our sins an rose again on the third day so that we may have everlasting eternal life if we ask for forgivness for our sins and earnstly repent of them!
Easter is a popular Christian festival, and is marked by the arrival of spring. Much like spring, this festival is linked with the concepts of birth, revitalization and fruitfulness.
Easter symbolises the Resurrection of Christ, 3 days after he was crucified. Easter falls between the forty days of Lent and 7 weeks of Eastertide. It is one of the most significant and celebrated holiday as regarded by Christians.
Although there is no mention of a yearly feast to commemorate the Resurrection, the practice had started being observed on a wide scale by the beginning of the 2nd century.
As per the theologian Venerable Bede, Easter has gotten its name from the goddess of spring; Eostre.she was linked with an egg and a hare, both of which have become indispensable symbols for Easter – Easter eggs brought by the Easter bunny.
The resurrection our our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He died on the cross to free us of our sins, then rose again to live forever in us :)
Easter marks the start of Spring and how flowers will soon bloom and blossom, causing high spirits.
Its also about God, and the Bible, with Jesus being reborn after being hung on the cross. It shows that anything is possible, and how we at fault for ourselves.
And for the little kids, its about coloring eggs and finding stuff left by the Easter Bunny. Its about the family time spent together dying eggs into bright, fun colors.
To me Easter is the time to celebrate the event when my Lord- Jesus Christ- died for my sins and then rose from the dead three days later. Thanks to Easter, the entire human race has the opportunity to not only cheat death, but live for an eternity in joy with God.
Easter is when Jesus raised from the dead after being hung on the cross(Good friday) and then three days later (Easter) he rose from the dead, and is living today!
I say that easter is something that is the most important holiday because jesus died on the cross for our sins
It means jesus' resurrection!
Easter means celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Death and Eating Chocolates
It meaans a lot more than just eggs,easter baskets, and candy....
It is the celebration of Jesus rizing up from the dead. (just a quick meaning)
As a child it meant the opportunity for the occasional new clothes and to go some place and last to be able to eat a rare & festive meal. Later, I was taught it spiritual and religious meaning being that of Jesus having risen from the dead. However, and even though I do believe in a High power greater then all men, that knowledge never provided me with any more faith, belief, and/or a spiritual awakening of sorts as I still question its being factual having also learned that the bible and religion is yet again Man's quest for power and control through any means necessary. Now I don't give it any thought since any chance I had of it's believe has been lost in the commercialism, profit and greed. One of God's greatest miracle's was evolution and Man's brain embedded w/ knowledge and the capacity advance. However, we've used that gift to be blindsided toward selfish needs and greed & achieved all that was not meant to be to the point of destroying self. It's called being so smart and more stupid.
It means HOPE. Without the death & resurrection of God's son we would never have a chance to get to heaven because he took the sins of the world on himself at his death. Without accepting Jesus, God's son there is no redemption of sin & eternal damnation, as God cannot accept sin. Jesus death allowed humans to have forgiveness of sin but we have free will to accept or reject his son & seal our fate
An excuse for companies to sell us overpriced chocolate in the shape of an egg.
A holiday that is seasonally irrelevant to the southern hemisphere since we are going into winter we should be celebrating Halloween, not new life which is a spring thing.
And an excuse for people to try and force their beliefs down my neck. I've never seen an atheist out on the street harassing people.
Well. I am a Greek. A Greek Orthodox Greek. Our Easter begins on the Spring Equinox, (snotty, snooty Greeks!), as it is tied to Ancient Pagan Greek Rituals for the fertility of crops and Spartan chicks. Our easter eggs are blood red...no, not the blood of that Christ-dude, but because red represents fertility as in a Spartan chick getting her period, and her Spartan Dude wants to make sure they have babies. Our lent is brutal: No meat, cheese, milk products, liquor ;(, sweets, butter, fish. So, what DO we eat at lent? Nothing. We starve. We drop a few lbs. I guess you would say that Greek Easter is a diet regime. LMGrkAO!
Is just the remember of lord jesus christ
Directly translation to Turkish is left wing. It is sth about politics
Resurrection day....The day when Jesus was risen out of the Grave.
It means the resurection of christ and god is the reason for everything
It means Jesus was resurrected on that day. It also means I get to eat chocolate and the easter bunny comes!!!! Lolz
Easter is the day that Jesus rose from the dead. I usually go to church. But I also go on egg hunts, color eggs, make cookies, and eat candy. Spring is here and lots of baby animals and life are being born.
I'm real_ferret from Twitter, who asked this in a blurt out.
Blurt-it said to come here.
I'm so glad to see how people really believe in Bibles and God as our holy creator. I think Easter is really just a way to show that to people....
It a way to see how people enjoy embracing their religion and to see why we were born...
The Greek ranter has it right. The real historical Jesus was not crucified, but was stoned to death on the eve of Passover, which is at the Vernal Equinox, i.e. On the cross of winter into spring, the pagan symbol for which is the Cross. Jesus died 'on the Cross', but not a physical cross, since the Romans used T or X shaped crosses. The Christian Cross is a modern take on the pagan symbol for the Vernal Equinox festival.
Easter, Of course for the children means Hot Cross Buns, Easter Eggs & The Easter bunny, But the most frequent question is what do they mean? Well lets go into the past, Easter day, The celebration is god risen from the cross, So old christians don't celebrate it because it is like they are celebrating death. The cross on the bun is gods cross & the easter eggs mean a new begining.Bringing Easter eggs seems to have its origins in Alsace and the Upper Rhineland, both then in the Holy Roman Empire, and southwestern Germany, where the practice was first recorded in a German publication in the early 17th century.
THE TIME TO TAKE A STOP AND START ALL OVER AGAIN.
THE TIME TO MAKE GOOD ALL D BADS.
IT MEANS TO FULFIL PROMISES MADE,you know jesus died and he said I will come back to life.he did just that.he resurrected.
It means to die and live again.
Easter: An opportunity to overindulge in the excellence that is... Chocolate.
In One word "A Holy day".
Nothing at all I'm a atheist^_^
It means a day of joy and happiness. When everybody gets together and has fun. A day when little kids have easter egg hunts, and people eat candy.
The celebration of spring and the coming of leaves, flowers and the birth of baby animals.
It means that when jesus body was gone an he came to haven to watch us... An getting the family together an celebrity easter with jesus
Easter is a Pagan Holiday,sexual Goddess,fertility
I celebrate PASSOVER, Jesus became my Passover not my Easter Bunny
So sad people do not realize that,even so called Pastors.
Easter is the most important day of the year, when we celebrate our Saviour rising again so that we can be saved by faith in Him!!!!!! Praise the Lord!!!!
It's just another day of the week. Another day to grab one of my guns and go shootin'.
Easter is a very important celebration in my life because it is to remember Jesus died for us!
