6th April 2023 Every year Easter has a different time… Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon in spring. Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the Christian religion. Throughout the world the most popular Easter symbol is the lamb. The lamb is a symbol of Jesus in the bible. It is also called "Agnus Dei" (Lamb of God) . In Christian iconography, an Agnus Dei is a visual representation of Jesus as a lamb, holding a standard or banner with a cross and stands for Jesus Christ's resurrection. In the Old Testament Jesus often is compared with a sacrificial lamb because he did sacrifice himself for the sin of the world. In past centuries it was considered a lucky omen to meet a lamb, especially at Easter time. It was a popular superstition that the devil, who could take the form of all other animals, was never allowed to appear in the shape of a lamb because of its religious symbolism. In Christian religion the egg is a symbol of rebirth, of new life: An egg, out of which a chick will be hatched. There are several Easter egg traditions. In the United Kingdom some business and attractions hold Easter egg hunts. These are competitions to see who can collect most eggs. The most popular tradition in Switzerland is "egg pushing" ("Eiertitschen"): people push hard boiled eggs against other people's egg. The winner is the person whose egg remains whole and is allowed to eat both eggs after the game. However and wherever you spend the Easter holiday - we wish you: Happy Easter!
