Celebrating Palm Sunday and Easter

easterp2Two special religious observances in March are Palm Sunday (March 24th) and Easter Sunday (March 31st). Our blog post this week covers the religious meaning, traditional celebrations, and Easter gift and décor ideas for this spring season.

Religious Connections

Both observances involve remember the sacrifices of Jesus Christ, including his ministry and appearing on a donkey that walked across a road filled with palm fronds, as well as Holy Week, which included his death on the cross.

Easter Sunday completes the cycle of remembrance with a celebration of his resurrection, which serves as a reminder of how he has redeemed humans from their sins and saved believers.

Spring Celebrations

Typically, those that celebrate these two holidays do so in church and in mass. They also spend time reflecting on the importance of these celebrations with friends and family as well as enjoying an Easter feast.

This is a great time to get the children dressed up in their Sunday finest, including Easter dresses and bonnets for the girls and suits and ties for the boys.easterp1

The Easter holiday is also a fun time for kids of all ages to take part in many activities, including dying Easter eggs, going on Easter egg hunts, and devouring Easter baskets filled to the brim with chocolates and sweets.

Easter Flowers and Gifts

This is also the time to enjoy the best of spring flowers by incorporating them in the Easter celebrations, including Easter flower arrangements, Easter flower baskets, Easter centerpieces, and Easter lilies.
