    I am a messianic jew, and as such i believe in passover not easter. jesus did not actually die on easter but on pasover. The word easter is not in the new or old testament. infact  Easter was named after Eostre, which was a saxon fertility god. Which is why on easter you have eggs.

    I'm now in Asia, and there is seldom any association with Easter. Anyhow, my memory is filled with decorated eggs, a symbol of new life. It's quite impressive.

    To further Joshua Lytle's comment on this topic, Easter was originally a fertility holiday called "Eostre" and even before that, "Ostara" for the maiden goddess Ostara.

    It is the day that is also the spring equinox, when the hours are of equal length of day and night for this specific day.  Eggs are affiliated with this holiday because not only are they a sign of fertile beginnings, it was rumored that they could stand up straight when sat on the ground.

    The Hare is also a sign of spring and a symbol of the God of the pagans, as well as they are also abundant during such a time because of their ability to multiply so quickly.

    In the United States,(Las Vegas, Nevada) we love to celebrate any holiday! while many countries may say that we are rated the most "Confident", and not intelligent, we sure know how to party!

    We love eggs, during this time of the year! Easter eggs consists of both chocolate eggs, peanut butter eggs, regular eggs and even artificial eggs, filled with candy or prizes!

    We usually start off our day, with church! Celebrating the day that Jesus rose again!! Some walk around the neighborhood with palm leaves, waving it and singing about Jesus. After that, the easter egg hunt is on its way. The children runs around trying to find hidden eggs that their parents have hidden! The one with the most eggs found, wins! You win both ways because you get to eat or play with your treats and get another!

    The other fun thing for me, growing up here as a little girl, during Easter, was the dressing up. I got a new dress, wore white gloves, a beautiful hat and pretty shoes with lace socks! As an adult, I still dress extra fancy and it makes me feel like a princess and child-like again.

    Maybe that's the whole plan! To feel child-like and happy, while celebrating Jesus's arrival again!!

    I just love Easter!

    Resurrecting Rose of Jericho for Easter Decoration

    The Rose of Jericho is a desert plant famous for its ability to survive for years in a dormant state and revive itself multiple times. It is a perfect natural decoration for Easter table, because of its gorgeous appearance and symbolic coherence to eternal life. After all, the meaning of Easter is resurrection of Christ and promise of eternal life. It is celebration of awakening nature as well. The Rose of Jericho turning green on your Easter table would remind the meaning of Easter miracle and bring a breath of nature to your home.
