On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches.
Christians believe, according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter. Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for all who believe in him, eternal life in Christ Jesus.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter Sunday. Eastern Orthodox churches observe Lent or Great Lent, during the 6 weeks or 40 days preceding Palm Sunday with fasting continuing during the Holy Week of Easter. Lent for Eastern Orthodox churches begins on Monday and Ash Wednesday is not observed.

Today we had "Easter".
Afternoon, commanded, we hurried to the grass began to search for the so-called "white rabbit hid eggs".
The classmates scattered on the mound, bushes and trees found in large white egg. I come not the empty place of the classmate, pretend to be experienced in underground hard groping in the bushes, really didn't expect unexpectedly touched a. That's great! Continue to work hard! I didn't hope hope game are picked up. I looked at the nearby nothing, except a little yellow things... Is this not the legendary, the only real eggs, if you get it, I'm a lucky dog! This is can eat... When I was flattered to eggs have already did not have a shadow. Good sad! Me is so close to the egg, but I let it!
However, I went to adjust the mood, ready to continue to look for. Through bushes, guessing, feel the grass under the tree... Where there is no. Well there is no doubt that road, scenes and village. I was in the grass between the road and found another egg. That's great! The second! Right away, time is up, pick up two I have is "egg hunt hero!"

Easter is a Danish holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus. It also marks the coming of spring, the grass is green, the leaves germinate, the flowers are in bud. People go on vacation.
This Easter, my parents and I did not go far. I do my homework, I study, and I play a lot of interesting things.
On the first day of the Easter holiday, I found a rubik's cube at home. It was my seventh birthday present. I've never been a rubik's cube, but I'm going to learn it this Easter holiday. I found an article on the Internet to teach people to play the rubik's cube, while reading, and learning to play with the rubik's cube, I was wrong many times in the process of learning, but eventually recovered successfully. Then I began to recite the formula again and again. When I feel that I have memorized the formula, I will upset the rubik's cube and start over again. I made a mistake twice, but it was done. Then I did it faster and faster until I was able to recover the cube without using my head.
Another thing I find interesting is John's birthday party. John is my classmate and my good friend. He is celebrating his birthday next Monday, so he asked the boys in the class to go to dinner and see a movie on Saturday. That day, we met at an Italian restaurant and went to the cinema together after dinner. The movie was special because he switched from black and white to color. The movie was a little scary, but it was a lot of fun.
Think about it, actually my Easter is fun and I learn a lot of things. This is an interesting Easter. I hope everyone has had an interesting Easter!
Today is the April of the summer camp, and there is an important Christian holiday, Easter.
Easter, on the second Sunday of April, is the day of the resurrection of Jesus. This holiday, in the eyes of the Christian, is more important than any holiday. So on Easter, the celebration of the show is going to be quite grand, and we are no exception here.
Tonight, we're going to be out there, hunting eggs in the prescribed places. At this time, the sun had quietly dropped down the hill, but the sun was still clinging to the west. We received orders to begin the operation, and we immediately carried out a blanket search in the prescribed grassland.
I looked left and right to find the most likely place to hide my eggs - some of the stones that lay on the prairie. It is very likely that the eggs are hidden in these crevices. But because of the long grass next to me, it was so hard to scratch me. Look at some nearby students, some are itchy "dance"; Some of them are itching to grin.
After a few minutes, we searched every corner of the room, and I only had four eggs in my hand. We all wondered, what happened? How about the eggs? All of a sudden, I found that the other students in the other class, with their hands full, took all of them. I was suddenly enlightened: it was the other classmates who found most of the eggs, and took most of the eggs without mercy.
With failure and regret, we returned angrily to the classroom. I found that each student's face was filled with sadness and anger. After a while, the teacher brought a pot of eggs. Looking at the eggs, we turned our worries to Ann. Yeah, we messed up the egg hunt, and we can get on the eggs.
I picked up my brush, picked up the paint, and carefully drew a small circle on the little egg. But before long, my hand accidentally shook, frighten me a big jump, a small circle suddenly became a long trace, this egg also naturally I screwed up. I ran quickly to the washroom, washed my eggs in exasperation, and hurried back to the teacher's egg. After a long period of hard work, I finally made a miracle on the egg, and now I'm waiting for the paint to dry.
Behold, in this critical moment, there was a female classmate accidentally splashed paint on my egg, the pigments such as split, the plum flower general scattered disorderly array on my eggs, add a patch on, like a star face immediately without a price.
I frowned, and my heart sank. This is the second time the painting has been smashed, and then there is no time. I saw my classmates hand in the delicate eggs, my heart acid, almost shed tears.
long before easter became the holiday it is today, the spring festival was celebrated by the people around the world. the celebration was originally based on the lunar calendar. the name easter is derived from the saxon eostre (which is synonymous with the name of the phoenician goddess of the moon, astartephoto), a germanic goddess of spring and the deity who measured time.
Hide your dyed Easter eggs all over your lawn, garden, and porch and set the little ones loose with baskets. Another variation is hiding hollow plastic eggs with clues inside about where to find the next egg. The last egg contains directions to the treasure (a Lego toy, stuffed animal, or other fun prize)! To avoid disappointment, make sure you have a treasure for each child.
