The date of Easter varies from year to year, because it is calculated on a lunar cycle, but it is always the Sunday after Good Friday. It is as important to Christians as Christmas, if not more, because it celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, having really died on Good Friday and having been buried in a tomb. On Easter morning his followers came to the tomb and found that is body was not there. Angelic messengers told them that he had been raised from the dead, and in the last chapters of the four gospels we can read a number of accounts of the disciples meeting their risen Lord. This is a festival of life and hope. Easter eggs represent new life, as do the chicks that often decorate Easter cards or cakes! The traditional hollow Easter egg represents that empty tomb. In churches everywhere we light a special Easter candle and flowers again are seen, for the first time for some weeks. And we say “Christ is risen!” “He is risen indeed, Alleluia!”.
