The Bunny Rabbit and Eggs?
Like to wish everyone a Happy Easter! This is a symbolic, serious, and at the same time a happy time for Christians in our world. With all that is going on in our world, it is a Holiday that we should all take time out to be thankful for and celebrate.
The Bunny and Eggs
Most of us know that the Easter Egg is the symbol of new life. Early Orthodox churches had a custom of abstaining from eggs during the fast of Lent and the only way to keep the eggs fresh was to boil them. Many Christians in early times boiled their eggs red, the color of blood, in recognition of the blood of Christ.
The Bunny Rabbit, I did not know, how they came about. In fact, it was a question that was being discussed this morning on the news and no one had an answer. So, I was curious.
It was believed in the early churches that a Hare was a hermaphrodite. The idea was that a hare could reproduce without the loss of virginity, that led to the association with the Virgin Mary. Hares often appeared in illuminated manuscripts and paintings of the Virgin Mary and Christ.
Anyway, I though I would pass that on, many of you may already know this, but it is an interesting topic for discussion. I am off for the weekend to celebrate this Holy Weekend and spend time with my other family.
There are a lot of things going on in our world that are not so good, but there is a lot of good going on here at Wealthy Affiliate that is good for everyone in our world. For an un-educated ex-truck driver like me it is great to be associated with this group of smart, compassionate people.
Happy Easter Everyone!
