Fun Facts About Easter

While the pageantry and presents of the Christmas season overshadow it, Easter is the holiest day for Christians. It is on this particular day that Christians from every corner of the globe and from every denomination celebrate the resurrection of their savior Jesus Christ.

Easter holds a special meaning for people from all walks of life, rich and poor, young and old, male and female. For many people, Easter means fond memories of waking up to an overflowing Easter basket. To others, it means special times with family and friends, and to others, Easter means building on past family traditions to create a special celebration for your own family.

There are some great and exciting facts about the Easter holiday, and it is great fun to delve into the history, facts, and trivia of this particular holiday. Some of the things you may not have known about Easter include:

The Easter egg roll on the White House lawn has been a tradition ever since 1878, and it remains one of the most popular events in Washington, D.C.

The people of the Ukraine are thought to be the original egg decorators, and the process of creating those intricately decorated eggs is known as ìPysankyî. The Ukrainians and others have been creating these intricately decorated eggs for over six thousand years, and some of their creations are worth a fortune.

We owe the ever famous chocolate bunny to the people of Germany. It was the Germans who first created edible Easter bunnies out of a combination of pastry and sugar. These special Easter treats were first baked in the early 1800s, and as Germans emigrated to the United States, they brought their chocolate rabbits with them.

In Europe, it was common practice to hang decorated Easter eggs from tree branches, and this practice of creating Easter trees is becoming popular in the United States as well.

The egg as a symbol of fertility and new birth predates the Christian celebration of Easter. The egg has long been held to be a symbol of rejuvenation and rebirth. Decorated eggs have been found in Egyptian tombs, and the Greeks used to place eggs on the graves of departed loved ones.

The beauty of Easter lies in its versatility. Easter can be either a somber religious celebration, a great chance to eat delicious candy and open presents, or a combination of both. No matter what your Easter celebration may hold, we hope you enjoyed these fun facts about this very special day.

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
