What does Easter mean to you?

 

I have been pondering what it’s all about. Easter that is. At first glance it seems to be a time when religion and confectionery mix, which when you think about is a bizarre mix!

 

Take the Easter bunny… It all stems from a Northwest European folklore about a hare that gave out coloured eggs to children that were good. Now given that the hare (or rabbit) and eggs have been a symbol of fertility and it occurs in spring (in the Northern Hemisphere) – a time of rebirth, renewal and regrowth. Its fairly clear the message is about a new beginning.

 

From the religious side, regardless of your personal faith/beliefs the story of Jesus at Easter is all about rebirth.

 

So for me I think it is the perfect opportunity to see if there is anything you want to change to make your life better, more creative, more fun, more fulfilled…

So have another chocolate egg and enjoy yourself.

Life is short so make sure you enjoy it.

Happy Easter!
