"He is Risen".

La Pascua es una festividad que celebra la Resurrección de Jesucristo. El tercer día después del Viernes Santo (el día de su crucifixión) ahora llamado Domingo de Pascua, volvió de la muerte. Los dolientes fueron a su tumba para recojer su cuerpo. No obstante, no estaba allí y fueron visitados por un ángel que dijo "Ha resucitado"

Eggs Spinning Easter Eggsare a symbol of the new life that returns to nature at Easter Time. The custom of exchanging eggs 
began long before Easter was celebrated. 
It was a custom of the Egyptians and the Persians. 
They exchanged eggs decorated in Spring colors. 
They believed Earth hatched from an egg 
which contributed to this custom. 
Early Christians used red colored eggs 
to symbolize the Resurrection. 
In England they began writing messages 
and dates on their eggs and exchanging them 
with friends and loved ones. 
In the 1800's, candied eggs were made. 
They were open on one end and a scene was put inside. 
They were used as table centerpieces.

Los huevos son un símbolo de la nueva vida que vuelbre a la naturaleza en tiempos de Pascua. La costumbre de intercambiar huevos comenzó mucho antes de que se celebrase la Pascua. Era una costumbre egipcia y persa. Se intercambiaban huevos decorados con colores primaverales. Creían que la Tierra nació de un huevo, lo cual contribuyó a esta costumbre. Los primeros cristianos usaban huevos coloreados para simbolizar la Resurrección. En Inglaterra comenzaron a escribir mensajes y fechas en los huevos y a intencambiarlos con amigos y seres queridos. En 1800, se crearon los huevos de caramelo. Se abrían por uno de los extremos y se introducía una escena. Se usaban como centros de mesa. 

Rabbits Easter Bunny hiding Easter Eggssymbolized new life and rebirth
in ancient Egypt.
They considered it a symbol of the moon
as the moon determines the date of Easter.
The Easter Bunny's visit is based upon a German Legend.
The legend goes that a poor woman decorated eggs
for her children to find during a famine.
At the moment they found them,
they looked up to see a big bunny hopping away.

Los conejos sumbolizaban nueva vida y renacimiento en el antiguo Egipto. Los consideraban una metáfora de la luna, y la luna determina la fecha de la Pascua. La visita del Conejo de Pascua está basada en una leyenda alemana. La leyenda cuenta que una mujer pobre decoraba huevos para que sus hijos los buscaran durante las épocas de hambruna. En el momento en que los encontraron, miraron para ver un gran conejo alejándose a saltos. 

Now, let's have some fun!

Here you have a classic Disney cartoon about Easter!

Saint Patricks Day!

St. Patrick's Day is an Irish holiday celebrated all around the globe to honor the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated each year on March 17th.

It is believed that he died on March 17 in the year 461 AD. It is also a worldwide celebration of Irish culture and history. St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday in Ireland.
In Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day, people traditionally wear a small bunch of shamrocks on their jackets or caps. Children wear orange, white and green badges, and women and girls wear green ribbons in their hair.
Many cities have a St. Patrick’s Day parade. Dublin, the capital of Ireland, has a huge St. Patrick’s Day festival from March 15-19, that features a parade, family carnivals, treasure hunt, dance, theatre and more. In North American, parades are often held on the Sunday before March 17. Some paint the yellow street lines green for the day! In Chicago, the Chicago River is dyed green with a special dye that only lasts a few hours.

El día de San Patricio es una festividad Irlandesa celebrada en todo el mundo en honor al patrón de Irlanda, San Patricio. El día de San Patricio se celebra todos los años el 17 de marzo.
Se cree que murió el 17 de marzo del año 461 después de Cristo.  Es también una celebración mundial de la cultura e historia irlandesas. San Patricio es una fiesta nacional en Irlanda.

El día de San Patricio la gente lleva pequeños ramilletes de tréboles en las chaquetas o sombreros. Los niños llevan insignias blancas, naranjas y verdes, y las chicas llevan lazos verdes en el pelo.

Muchas ciudades tienen desfiles por el día de San Patricio. Dublín, capital de Irlanda, acoge un gran festival que dura del 15 al 19 de marzo, que incluye cabalgatas, carnavales familiares, cazas del tesoro, baile, teatro y más. En Estados Unidos las cabalgatas se suelen celebrar el domingo antes del 17 de marzo. En algunas ciudades pintan las señales de las calles de verde en lugar de amarillo. En Chicago el río se tiñe de verde con un tinte especial que sólo dura unas horas.
