Pre Easter

Humanizing Human Beings, To Be Little Candles for Others

It is mini article which I wrote during Pre-Easter.

What is Easter?

Easter refers to celebration of Pesakh or Passover. Gospels say Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. Some Christians celebrate Jesus's resurrection on Easter Sunday which is also called Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday, two days after Good Friday and three days after Maundy Thursday. The essense of easter is resurrection - resurrection of new life, resurrection which refers to salvation and freedom.

However, there is cultural modification among Pagan, Hebrew and Christian in Easter. Tradition about Easter Bunny and Easter Egg and various easter ideas are related to its cultural modification. You can know it from History of Easter and Origin of Easter.

In this Pre-Easter and to welcome Easter 2011, I present palm sunday story. It is semi hitorical fiction. It is fable short story with historical background. You may interpret it as Christian fiction. Read Lowly Donkey and The King of Peace.
