posted in: EASTER | 0

Easter is a celebration of rebirth; it is a symbol for forgiveness for past wrongdoing, and an opportunity to live a better life. For Christians, Easter celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus from dead, and the Resurrection established Jesus as the Son of God.

Easter and the holidays do not fall on a fixed date, instead, the date for Easter is determined on a lunisolar calendar. However, it always falls on Sunday between 22 March and 25 April.

We all celebrate Easter on our own way. Decorating our homes with flowers is one way of doing it. But, choosing  flowers that have a special meaning brings any flower arrangement to a new level.
