Easter is celebrated for centuries especially among the American families. For Easter decorations, there are a few considerations to consider, which include the mood of celebration, the color of decoration, lighting, and also the use of Easter bunny and eggs.
Easter is a holiday that means different things to different people and/or cultures. For a Christian it represents the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Egg in many cultures represents new life and was adopted to represent the new life of Jesus Christ, a new life sealed within. There were, in times past, Catholics who dyed the eggs red to represent the blood of Christ, the shell the tomb and shedding the shell represents the resurrection.
There are many conflicting legends through the Christian community involving Mary Magdalene as well but I will leave that up to the reader to do their own research and draw their own conclusions. In the pagan religions, eggs and rabbits represent the fertility of the Earth at the Vernal Equinox. Nowadays, it is a symbol of the changing of the seasons and an excuse for a woman to decorate and have fun with their children. It is a way to breathe new life into your home with the beautiful spring colors and officially end the drab feeling that comes with the end of winter. There is something magical associated with the coming of each season that just doesn’t seem to last till the end of it.
Even though Easter has been celebrated for centuries among American families, choosing the right Easter decorations for the home is challenging. Putting wrong accessories in your house may cause people to feel troubled or anxious since this celebration has two meanings for two different parties. In one side, Easter is linked with Christian religion while on the other side, there is a secular society that regard Easter as a way to welcome the spring.
Taking into account that Easter relates with two different parties, it is best to keep a delicate mood of the decoration. This is to avoid any unpleasant experience with any side of the party. Putting large crucifix outdoor or other religious symbols may be taken as offensive for some people that it is better to keep any religious signs small and put them inside of the house.
