Happy Easter to "all" my Facebook family and friends
So these are some of the cupcakes I made for the kids to celebrate this "blessed" holiday.
Now . . . as we all know . . . "Easter" . . . is a day that honors the "Resurrection" of "Jesus" . . . 3 days after His "death by crucifixion".
But . . . many of the traditions we see today . . . have little to do with the "true" history of "Easter"
So what about the "Easter egg"???
How did that tradition start???
And is it a "true" tradition???
Well . . . the use of painted and decorated "Easter" eggs was first recorded in the 13th century
So how did this tradition start???
Well . . . the Church "prohibited" the eating of eggs during "Holy Week" . . . but the chickens continued to lay their eggs during that week . . .
And with this . . . the Church "identified" those eggs as . . . "Holy Week Eggs" . . . and this is how the tradition was born to "decorate" Easter eggs.
You see . . . the "egg" itself . . . then became a "symbol" of the Resurrection".
Just as "Jesus" rose from the tomb . . . the "egg" symbolizes . . . "new" life emerging from the eggshell.
So I hope you enjoy and celebrate the true meaning of this day with family and friends.
See you tomorrow
