    Easter Sunday, but I don't think I matters if you have to do it on a different day

    yep Easter Sunday - isn't it something to do with traditionally putting the rocks on the tomb and Jesus coming back to live on the Sunday? I have some vague memory of this from Sunday school???

    ETA - whoops don't listen to me! Apparently the rock on tombs things is a Jewish custom. History.com tells me its probably because eggs were forbidden during lent, so they were decorated and put on display at a sign of celebration to mark the end of lent/reserection of Christ which is definately on Sunday.

    Traditionally it's Sunday, as Friday was the crucifiction, and Sunday was the day Jesus 'rose from the grave' so it's about celebrating the fact of the rising of Christ.

    Having said that, Easter comes from the ancient pagan celebration of Eostar, which is all about spring fertility thus the motifs of rabbits, spring flowers, eggs etc. So really it depends what it means to you I suppose.

    I personally celebrate the Fertility part of easter, not anything to do with JC, but that in itself is problematic, as we are simply mimicing the dates from the Northern Hemisphere, and it's not spring here at all, it's Autumn!!




    The correct celebration for this time of year (in general terms) in the Southern Hemisphere on the pagan calendar is Mabon - Autumn Equinox.


    So many problems arise when different faiths overlay others

    Sunday, it's the day you celebrate that Jesus is risen.
