Easter is a moveable feast, it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established the date of Easter as the first Sunday after the full moon, the Paschal Full Moon, following the March equinox.

Ecclesiastically, the equinox is reckoned to be on March 21st, although the astronomical equinox occurs on March 20th in most years, and the "Full Moon" is not necessarily on the astronomically correct date. The date of Easter therefore varies between 22 March and 25 April inclusive.

Johnny Gruelle From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Johnny Gruelle (December 24, 1880 - January 8, 1938) was an artist, political cartoonist, and writer of children's books. He is best known as the creator of Raggedy Ann. He also provided colour illustrations for a 1914 edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales.

He was born John Barton Gruelle in Arcola, Illinois. His first well known cartooning work was Mr. Twee Deedle which Gruelle created after he beat out 1,500 other entrants in a cartooning contest sponsored in 1911 by The New York Herald. Mr. Twee Deedle was in print from 1911 to 1914.

One day, Johnny gave his daughter Marcella a dusty, faceless rag doll found in the attic. Johnny drew a face on the doll and named her Raggedy Ann. Marcella played with the doll so much, Raggedy Ann became like a sister to her. Gruelle wanted other little girls to have such dolls. Gruelle's Raggedy Ann doll Patent # 47789 was dated September 7, 1915. In 1918, the PF Volland Company published Raggedy Ann Stories. Gruelle then created a following series of popular Raggedy Ann books and dolls.

Gruelle lived in the Silvermine section of Norwalk, Connecticut, where the dolls were first mass produced, and later moved his home and company to neighboring Wilton, Connecticut. Gruelle spent a year in Ashland, Oregon from 1923-1924

Easter Lily (Lilium longiflorum)

Easter Lily (Lilium longiflorum)Lilium longiflorum From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lilium longiflorum,(Japanese: Teppouyuri) often called the Easter lily or November lily, is a plant native to Japan and the Ryukyu Islands. It is a stem rooting lily, growing up to 1 m high. It bears a number of trumpet shaped, white, fragrant, and outward facing flowers.
A variety of it, L. longiflorum var. eximium, native to the Ryukyu Islands, is taller and more vigorous. It is extensively cultivated as a cut flower. It has irregular blooming periods in nature, and this is exploited in cultivation, allowing it to be forced for flowering at particular periods, such as Easter. However, it can be induced to flower over a much wider period. This variety is sometimes called the Bermuda lily because it has been much cultivated in Bermuda.

Before World War II, most of the Easter lily bulbs arriving in the United States were imported from Japan. However, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the supply of bulbs was suddenly cut off, and the Easter lilies became extremely valuable in the United States.

Lilium longiflorum, amongst some other types of lilies, are extremely poisonous to cats

Easter egg From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Easter eggs are specially decorated eggs given to celebrate the Easter holiday or springtime. The oldest tradition is to use dyed and painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery such as jellybeans. These eggs are often hidden, supposedly by the Easter Bunny, for children to find on Easter morning.

Claims are made that Easter eggs were originally pagan symbols, however as with most European pagan religion, the evidence for this is sketchy. One source of information on Eostre, a pagan goddess who may have given her name to the festival, does not mention eggs at all. It is, however, the more accepted historical line that Eostre was associated with eggs and Hares. There are also good grounds for the association between Hares (later termed Easter bunnies) and eggs, through folklore confusion between Hares forms (where they raise their young) and Plovers nests. In the 18th Century Jakob Grimm theorised a pagan connection to Easter eggs, with a putative goddess of his own who he named Ostara, a suggested German version of Eostre.

Overall, despite the speculation regarding a goddess, there is little doubt that the Western name for the festival, Easter derives from the germanic word Eostre which is also a name mentioned by Bede as a past Saxon goddess.

At the Passover Seder, a hard-boiled egg dipped in salt water symbolizes both new life and the Passover sacrifice offered at the Temple in Jerusalem. The ancient Persians painted eggs for Nowrooz, their New Year celebration, which falls on the Spring equinox. This tradition has continued every year on Nowrooz since ancient times.

Easter Bunny, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Easter Bunny is a traditional holiday character in the form of a giving rabbit which is said to leave gifts, usually Easter baskets for children at Easter (or at springtime). It originates in Western European cultures, where it is a hare rather than a rabbit. The Easter Bunny is an example of folklore mythology and is sometimes taught to children to believe in. Some people don't approve of teaching of an existence of the Easter Bunny. Not everyone believes in the Easter Bunny, and many, if not most, eventually "grow out of" their belief. Other prominent examples of this are Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

Holidays, Easter, Resurrection of Jesus 2

Resurrection of Jesus by Matthias Grünewald, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Image in higher resolution (712 × 1185 pixel, file size: 133 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)

Matthias Grünewald (c.1470 – August 31, 1528), is a highly regarded figure from the German Renaissance. He painted primarily religious works, especially somber and awe-filled crucifixion scenes.

His real name was Mathis Gothart Neithart. A 17th-century writer, Joachim von Sandrart, mistakenly identified him by the name Grünewald; his real name was not discovered till the 1920s. He was born in Würzburg in the 1470s.
He served as court painter and hydraulic engineer to two successive archbishops of Mainz, Uriel von Gemmingen and Albrecht von Brandenburg, in the German Rhineland from about 1510 to 1525. He left this post apparently because of Lutheran sympathies. Grünewald died in Halle in 1528.

Death and resurrection of Jesus, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The death and resurrection of Jesus are two events in the New Testament in which Jesus is crucified on one day (the "Day of Preparation", i.e. the day before the Sabbath, the last day of the week), then resurrected on the third.[1] These two events are remembered by Christians, one on Good Friday and the other on every Sunday, but especially Easter Sunday. They are part of the core doctrines of the Christian faith.

While during Lent and the Easter season the death and resurrection of Jesus are celebrated most solemnly, Christians have from the earliest times celebrated the resurrection every Sunday, as Justin Martyr described in the mid-second century. Much later, in the fourth century, Roman Emperor Constantine I made Sunday a public holiday.

Easter, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Easter, also known as Pascha (Greek Πάσχα: Passover), the Feast of the Resurrection, the Sunday of the Resurrection, or Resurrection Day, is the most important religious feast of the Christian liturgical year, observed between late March and late April (early April to early May in Eastern Christianity). It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, which his followers believe occurred on the third day after his death by crucifixion some time in the period AD 27 to 33 (see Good Friday). In the Roman Catholic Church, Easter is actually an eight-day feast called the Octave of Easter.

Easter also refers to the season of the church year, lasting for fifty days, from Easter Sunday through Pentecost.
