Easter Sunday intro and nail art

Because of globalisation now we celebrate a lot of festivals that were previously foreign to us. For instance, just few days ago the blogging world went green shamrocking and celebrating St.Patrick’s day. Many of us do not know the reason behind each festival so I’ve decided to share a little about each one of them every time a festival I know comes around the corner. April 9 is EASTER SUNDAY (it’s the day that follows “good Friday” – the day when Jesus Christ was crucified. On Easter Sunday we Christians commemorate resurrection of Christ). And once again the blogging world will be bombarded will nail and face arts of Easter bunnies, colourful eggs and white flowers to celebrate it .  People celebrate Easter according to their beliefs and their religious denominations.

The Easter Bunny is a rabbit-spirit. Long ago, he was called the "Easter Hare", hares and rabbits have frequent multiple births so they became a symbol of fertility. The custom of an Easter egg hunt began because children believed that hares laid eggs in the grass. The Romans believed that "All life comes from an egg." Christians consider eggs to be "the seed of life" and so they are symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
With this short introduction I’m showing you the Easter nail art I made yesterday J
