Easter To all of you and may you and your
family enjoy this special and holy season. This blessed time
is for the faithful to celebrate the life, death and resurrection
of the Savior. It is also a magical time for children
as they enjoy chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and jelly
bean-filled Easter Eggs.
joyful Easter holiday season fills us with hope, joy, warmth and
new birth. It is a time for a second chance and to make
things right...to repent. A time to cleanse
our heart, our mind, our spirit and our soul and begin new again
with new hope, new meaning and new dreams!
Easter is a time of springtime festivals.
However, traditions associated with the festival survive in the
Easter Rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored Easter eggs,
originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of
spring and used in Easter Egg hunts and rolling contests or
actually, given as gifts.
Today, Easter is not only a Christian
holiday, but a holiday for many with deep liturgical and
Indeed, Christians celebrate
Easter as the religious holiday commemorating
the resurrection of Jesus Christ - the son of God. However,
the celebrations of Easter have many customs and legends that are
pagan in origin and have nothing to do with Christianity. Scholars,
accepting the derivation proposed by the 8th-century English
scholar St. Bede, believe the name Easter is thought to come from
the Scandinavian "Ostra" and the Teutonic
"Ostern" or "Eastre," both Goddesses of
mythology signifying spring and fertility whose festival was
celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox.
story of Easter is one of persecution and rebirth, making it the
central experience of the Christian belief system. On the Friday
before Easter, Christians believe that Jesus was executed by
crucifixion. His body is believed to have been removed from the
cross and buried in a guarded cave, with a large boulder blocking
Tradition continues that the Sunday after
Jesus was crucified his gravesite was visited by faithful women (Jesus'
mother the Virgin Mary may have been among them) who discovered
that the cave was empty. Later that day and for several days
after, Jesus' followers sighted him and came to believe that Jesus
had been risen from the dead by God.
Jesus' resurrection him being
"raised" holds central importance in Christian liturgy,
as the pinnacle expression of sin and redemption.
Additionally, Jesus' resurrection is understood as evidence that
he, through his righteousness, can redeem not only himself in
death, but also the entire Christian community in life."
Ever since I can remember
Easter has been extra special for me because my younger brother
who I respect and adore came into this world. I will never
forget my father explaining to me why he was cleaning our home so thoroughly
"the baby has come and you now have a baby brother...I
have to clean up and leave shortly to bring your baby brother and
your mom home." I so fondly recall the joy and
excitement I felt that I was skipping all around the house and
getting in my father's way while he tried to do the
As I grew up and learned
everything about Easter, my understanding for the season was
significantly momentous. Actually this holiday always seemed
to be a time to start fresh and new.
The holy celebrations were
intriguing beginning with Palm Sunday and the actual meaning of
it. Our entire family would take our small palm branches
home after attending church and hang them over our door and around
Friday the smell of the "hot cross buns" were awesome (sweet,
soft buns that have a cross on the top symbolizing the crucifixion
of Jesus Christ), and mom would cook up a storm with ground
provisions (foods such as potato, dasheen, plantain, cassava
and green banana) and some type of fish either salted cod,
fried or stewed fish, and top it off by cooking a special dish in
my country (Trinidad) called Coo-Coo.
I also marveled when my mom would break an egg and place the white
of it into a glass of water which she would set in the sun.
She always explained it would form into what will take place in
the future...for the balance of the year. Even though I did
not participate in the beating of the babaloo,
I help stuffed the old clothes in the form of the babaloo,
so at noon my brothers and male cousins would beat it (which
symbolized the beating of the disciple that betrayed
On Easter Sunday it was all
about attending church, my brothers and mom all dressed in our new
Easter outfits attended and enjoyed the somber and meaningful
service. (Daddy was not a church goer). Followed by a
scrumptious lunch Mom would prepare.
I must say as I grew up in
Trinidad Easter was not commercialize there at all. The
religiousness of the entire Easter season was always prominent.
It was not until I moved to America did I realize how
commercialized Easter was; with the chocolate bunnies, jelly
beans, marshmallow chicks and chocolate Easter Eggs. It is
funny when my husband Todd and I share all we remember about
Easter during our childhood, how different our memories are.
He remembers all the great candy and painting Easter Eggs, and
attending Easter Rolls and hunts. For me it was always about
attending Church. Now, for both of us watching the movie
"The Ten Commandments" is a major highlight of Easter.
how commercialize Easter may be, it is certainly a very special
time of the year, and one with lots of meaning.
As Sunday approaches please
share in the blessings of Easter and may you and your family have
a joyous Easter Holiday!
benefits [of the resurrection] and innumerable. To list a
few: Our illnesses don't seem nearly so final; Our fears fade
and lose their grip; Our grief over those who have gone on is
diminished; Our desires to press on in spite of the obstacles is
rejuvenated...Our identity as Christians is strengthened as we
stand in the lengthening shadows of saints down through the
centuries, who have always answered back in antiphonal
voice" He is risen, indeed".
