Frequently asked questions about Easter:
What is Easter and what does Easter celebrate?
Easter marks the point in the life of Jesus where he takes on the sins of man and allows himself to be executed on the day we call Good Friday demonstrating Gods love of man. Jesus could have used the powers of the spirit to avoid being executed but that would not have been such a power demonstration. On Easter Monday Jesus returns from the dead (the resurection) and demonstrates there is life beyond death and the power of the holy spirit.
What colours represents Easter?
The main colours of Easter are Purple which is a royal colour and then White which represents the purity of Jesus. Red can also be used to represent the blood of Jesus during his execution on the cross. Green is a traditional colour of hope and ever lasting life.
What is Easter Monday Called?
The week before Easter is known as Holy Week, it is the most significant week in the Christian faith, more so than Christmas. The Sunday before Easter is Palm Sunday, with the Wednesday before Easter being known as Spy Wednesday. The last three days before Easter are Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday (sometimes referred to as Silent Saturday) all leading up to Easter Sunday or Easter Day. In Western Christianity, Eastertide, or the Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the fiftieth day, Pentecost Sunday.
