Before my God fall on my knees

Then bursting forth in glorious day, 
Up from the grave He rose again

Little Known Curious Facts About Easter.

Funny facts about Easter

The Easter tradition requires that On Sunday, the Germans go to church and then look for Easter eggs in the gardens. They have celebrated Easter for centuries. The most important Symbols of Easter are the red egg as a symbol of life and the Easter rabbit.
The Easter Bunny does not exist. Everyone knows that. The essence of the festival is that Jesus Christ died on the cross and then he rose from the dead to bring eternal life and triumph of love for mankind. "
But what is Easter for children? Not every kid clearly understands the essence of the holiday. Until the XVI century it was believed that the hidden Easter eggs are brought from different animals. Certain regions considered these animals to be the fox or the hammer, for other regions the animals bringing Easter eggs were the stork, the cuckoo or the crane. And, of course, rabbits.


Spring flowers and Easter Eggs

The German Protestants  invented the story of the Easter bunny to entertain the kids and for one more reason that is explained by the results from the studies of Alois Doehring, an ethnographer in Bonn.
"Children with parents Catholics know that on Easter they will have the eggs as they are forbidden during the faasting. However, how should Protestant explain this to their children? Why are there so many eggs on Easter? "
The rabbit is a symbol of fertility. Rabbits give birth to very small bunnies in spring, they give life. When people see rabbits with their babies, they know that the end of winter has arrived. All this, however, does not explain the link between the mammal and egg, as the Protestants did not care much about biological authenticity.
Protestants celebrate the Easter Sunday humbly while Catholics rejoice loudly in church. During the Baroque period, the priests have told various anecdotes in the churches to make the Resurrection of Jesus Christ more fun. Sometimes even the pulpit itself became a stage for entertainment.


Presents for Easter


The Red egg is the symbol of Christ's blood
And how come the Easter customs got associated with the eggs?
The egg is a symbol of life, fertility and purification. In the past, Easter eggs were sacrificed to the German goddess of spring Ostara. Today they are a sign of friendship.
The fact that the Germans call their Easter Oster is not accidental. It is believed that eating eggs during Easter not only increases male strength, but is good for our health as well. During the fasting people do not eat eggs. To prevent the eggs from getting rotten in the 40-day fasting period, people started boiling them, thus making them durable. In the boiling water they used to add different plants and natural ingredients to paint them. This way later they could differ the raw eggs from the boiled ones.

Since the 12th century eggs are dyed on Holy Saturday. The next day the rabbit would hide them in the garden and children would seek them. The color of the egg is of great importance, because if you find the first blue egg, according to superstitions you will not be that lucky, whereas the red egg brings happiness.
"From the sermons during the Baroque age one can get an idea of painting, ornaments and Easter eggs typical of the XVII / XVIII century."
Naturally, the Protestants would not mind painting eggs. For eggs, as mentioned above, are a symbol of a new life, that's why eggs also symbolize the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Painting, decoration and distribution of eggs were also typical for the early Christian church, says Alois Doehring.


Different colored easter eggs

The Easter Bunny brings Easter gifts to German children.
Giving away Red eggs was considered as giving a personal blessing to the person.
Initially the ritual in the Orthodox church required that the eggs were painted only in red. This color is a symbol both of the blood of Christ and his endless love for people.
The Christian holiday derives from the Jewish Passover, which is celebrated on the first full moon in spring. This holiday is the commemoration of the liberation of the Jewish people from their slavery in Egypt. It was once a celebration of the shepherds who sacrificed a young lamb. Hence the term "Easter lamb". It is assumed that the rabbit by mistake became a harbinger of Easter. Actually a baker, who tried to roast the Easter lamb from dough failed because it looked like a rabbit instead.
During the centuries there have arisen many customs associated with the eggs and their decoration and painting and hiding eggs in the gardens. Typical usages are also knocking eggs and wearing them in a spoon.
