Sunday, as it was the day of Jesus Christ’s resurrection, However, the roots of the Easter holiday’s traditions and activities can be traced back to pagan celebrations. The name Easter is believed to come from Eostara, the goddess of rebirth. In early times the Feast of Eostara celebrated earth’s resurrection and rebirth.
We continue to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus by Blessing the water and lighting the lamp. The new fire is so sacred and I was honored to be a part of the celebration, prayer, and receiving a blessing. We danced, sang hymns, shared sweets, cooked a delicious meal,s and decorated the buildings. It was a sparking day with all my friends and this added delightfulness to the celebration.
