Easter Pavilion

Welcome to Easter Pavilion  - Find the Hidden Egg!

 

 

Easter comes at the time of spring festivals, a time to welcome the Spring messengers, The Tulips, the Crocuses and the Daffodils. Its a time to change wardrobes and add some new suits and dresses. For Christians, it is a time to celebrate the life and resurrection of Christ. For children and families, it is a time of tasting chocolate bunnies and painting colored eggs, Of course, pursuing the egg hunts in the parks.

Easter Story

In Christian countries Easter is celebrated as the religious holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the son of God. But the celebrations of Easter have many customs and legends that are pagan in origin and have nothing to do with Christianity.

Easter is thought to come from the Scandinavian "Ostra" and the Teutonic "Ostern" or "Eastre," both Goddesses of mythology signifying spring and fertility whose festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox.

Europeans use another name Pasch for Easter, derived from Pesach or Passover celebrated by the Jewish.

Holy week and the Lenten season end with Easter Sunday, the day of resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Story of Easter Eggs

Easter egg is identified as the symbol of fertility and new life. A hen can lay many eggs and hatch many chicks. The customs and traditions of using eggs have been associated with Easter for centuries. Rabbits known as one of the most fertile creatures are also associated with Easter Egg and Easter. 

Different cultures have developed their own ways of decorating Easter eggs. Crimson eggs, to honor the blood of Christ, are exchanged in Greece. Red eggs are offered as gifts by the Chinese for the occasion of new born reaching one month old.  In parts of Germany and Austria green eggs are used on Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday). Slavic peoples decorate their eggs in special patterns of gold and silver. In egg hunt, a golden egg is always considered as the grand prize. On this page or in this pavilion, there is one large golden egg hidden. Any one finds it can contact MWSEARCH by email to claim a prize. You simply have to state how and where you have found the large golden egg. This large golden egg has been hidden since 2004 and so far no one has yet found it. It seems to be a real challenge to hunt for the 'virtual golden egg'.  Hi, folks, while you are browsing and shopping, look out for the Golden Egg.

Quotes

I think of the garden after the rain;
  And hope to my heart comes singing,
    "At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
      And the Easter bells be ringing!"
      - Edna Dean Proctor, Easter Bells
 

"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
  Sons of men and angels say.
    Raise your joys and triumphs high;
      Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
      - Charles Wesley (1), Christ the Lord is Risen To-Day
