Easter 2013 & 2014 sign now

 

Easter is the oldest of the Christian festivals. It is celebrated approximately at the end of the first quarter of the calendar year although its date changes depending on the lunar cycle.

Easter remembers the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and globally encompasses three specific days of celebration. In Australia there is a fourth day taken as a part of the holiday.

The first day of the four days is Good Friday, which is the day on which Christians remember that Jesus Christ was arrested and how he died. The following day is known, in some denominations, as Holy Saturday. Then easter holiday deals Sunday, or simply Easter, is the day of celebration when Jesus Christ was resurrected from death. Monday is considered a day of renewal.

Australia, and much of the western world, follows the Gregorian calendar. The date of easter day dealsSunday is the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or after the March equinox. Many Eastern Christians who live in Australia use the Julian calendar, which can put their dates of Easter up to several weeks after western churches. The official Australian Easter long weekend gets its dates from the western Gregorian calendar.

The period of Easter, and the public holidays surrounding it, has a large impact on all of the country for almost all people regardless of their faith. For many weeks before the weekend, shops sell hot-cross buns – a spicy fruit bun with a cross of dough paste on top – and Easter eggs and rabbits, usually of chocolate. The histories of these items are varied and mixed with folklore, but the cross on the bread can be related to the wooden cross that Jesus was hung on, and the eggs are often related to the new life that his death and resurrection promises.

On the weekend of easter deals, families and community groups set up Easter egg hunts where children search through houses and gardens for chocolates and treats that have been hidden by parents and friends and, on the Friday and Sunday, Christians attend church services.
