Discover Seven Things About Easter

  • Easter Sunday is always on the first Sunday after the ecclesiastical Full Moon that occurs on or soonest after March 21 (complicated !)
  • Many of the symbols and rituals of Easter relate to the Jewish Passover.
  • The Easter Lily is a symbol of resurrection and is traditionally the flower of Easter.  (It is also, in Ireland, a symbol of the Easter Rising 1916)
  • Easter Eggs to celebrate Easter originated in the early Christian world with eggs stained in red in memory of the passion of Christ.
  • The Easter Bunny is a modern American tradition of a bunny character giving eggs to children.  It is thought to originate from a German legend.   In Australia, where rabbits are pests, the Easter Bilby  is an alternative. 

Whatever traditions you observe at Easter, it is a time of new beginnings, of hope and growth.   In Ireland last year we commemorated the Easter Rising 1916 .   Our Easter Lily collection was designed to honour the event and the women who took part in the Rising.

Wishing all our customers a wonderful Easter of new beginnings.
