Cost Efficient Chiropractic Care Flexible Hours for Your Convenience (573) 756-8700 301 N WASHINGTON STE 6 Farmington Easter is thought to have developed from an Old English word Eastrun (sometimes Eastre or Eostre). It may be derived from the name of an Old English goddess. In Latin and Greek, Easter is called Pascha. Some Christian traditions have dropped the observation of Lent and the days of Holy Week as pagan or too close to the Catholic religion, or they interpret the scriptures differently. Eggs are an ancient symbol of life and rebirth and, in Christian traditions, became closely associated with Jesus’ death and resurrection. In 1885, the tsar of Russia commissioned the jeweler Fabrege to design an elaborate enamled egg every Easter. According to CNN, U.S. consumers will spend $18.2 billion on candy, clothing, decora- tions and more this Easter. In Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches, Easter eggs are dyed red to represent the blood of Christ. Cracking open the egg on Easter represents opening Jesus’ empty tomb. Egg tapping, egg jarping, egg dumping or pocking eggs are all names for tapping boiled Easter eggs together. The winner is the holder of the last uncracked egg. In 1873, J.S. Fry & Sons introduced the first chocolate egg in Britain. In Australia, Easter takes place in autumn and is associated with the harvest rather than with the coming of spring. The Easter bunny originated among German Lutherans and, similar to Santa Claus, brings toys and candy to children. It was first mentioned in literature in 1682.
