In the Jewish faith, this time of the year is referred to as Passover. The Hebrew Bible commemorates Passover as a festival which celebrates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. This is referenced in the Book of Exodus. During the time of Jesus, Jewish pilgrims flocked to Jerusalem in hope that God would liberate them from the Romans. On one Passover, Jesus traveled to Jerusalem and the resulting disturbance in the Temple ultimately led to his crucifixion. Passover Flowers are an appropriate gift. The best colors for this holiday are usually Blue and White.
Easter, which is April 17th this year, has an unusual nickname. It is occasionally referred to as the “moveable feast” meaning that it is one Religious Holiday that moves from year to year. The reason for this change is that Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox.
This particular Full Moon is referred to as the “Paschal Moon” and is April’s first Full Moon. Easter, as with other holidays, ushers in a changing of the seasons. That season of course being Spring. Rockcastle Florist would be so happy to have you shop with us for Easter and Passover Flowers.
Early history reveals that the Easter festival was more celebrated by Catholics than Protestants. The Puritans of New England considered both Easter and Christmas as festivals for heavy drinking and merrymaking.
However, by the 19th century this belief had changed, and the holidays became a time to spend joyous moments with family. Today customary traditions of Easter Egg Hunting, Parades and the Easter Bunny have become the norm.
