Easter is a glorious celebration of spring. This holiday is both whimsical, with its bunnies and chicks, and sacred, with its connections to Christianity. As you consider decorating and gift giving for Easter, don’t forget to remember the flowers.
The Connection Between Easter and Flowers
Because Easter is traditionally celebrated in early spring, when flowers are just starting to make a comeback after winter weather, the holiday is closely associated with flowers. Flowers that are associated with spring, like the daffodil and tulip, are commonly displayed in theses arrangements.
Yet some Easter flowers hold a deeper meaning, due to the religious significance of the holiday. For instance, the lily is commonly built into Easter arrangements. The white of the Easter lily signifies the purity and goodness of Jesus, as well as the new life He offers.
The passion flower is another common symbol of the holiday. Its three stamens represent the trinity and the three nail wounds Jesus suffered. The circle design of the petals symbolizes the crown of thorns. The spear-shaped leaves signify the spear that was thrust through the side of Jesus. When given as a living plant, the passion flower will bloom for three days, symbolizing the three days Jesus spent in the tomb.
