Easter, also called Pasch orResurrection Sunday,is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred three days after his crucifixion by Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Christ, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

The week before Easter is called Holy Week, and it contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday(also known as Holy Thursday), commemorating the Last Supper and its preceding foot washing, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. In western Christianity, Eastertide, the Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the fiftieth day, Pentecost Sunday. In Orthodoxy, the season of Pascha begins on Pascha and ends with the coming of the fortieth day, the Feast of the Ascension.

 

Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Blackboard Eggs

Write messages on eggshells: Coat eggs with a layer of chalkboard paint and let your chalk do the talking. If you fall out of love with a pattern or picture, wash the surface and draw again.

 

Tattoo Eggs

It’s hard not to fall in love with these cool, no-dye eggs. Simply apply fake tattoos to eggshells the way you would to your own skin. Instead of bright colors, you’ll get eggs stamped with spiders, superheroes, and more.

 

Ombre Eggs

It’s easy to get this trendy look. Prepare dye according to the packaging and let eggs soak for varying amount of time. Take them out quickly for a hint of color and leave them in for longer to get a rich hue.

Washi Tape Eggs

Put metallic, patterned and pastel Washi tape to good use with this cute no-dye egg-decorating. Cut tape into various shapes and stick to egg surfaces.

 

Bling Bling Eggs

For a sparkly centerpiece, fill a glass bowl with glitter-dotted eggs. Dye egg desired color and let dry completely. Working with one side of the egg at a time, squeeze different size circles of glue on the egg. Holding the egg over a plate, pour glittering glue over the egg and shake off the excess (the egg will still have unwanted glitter, but don’t worry about that yet). Let the egg dry and repeat on the other side of the egg. Let dry several hours at least. When completely dry, carefully brush egg with the dry bristles of an old toothbrush to remove the unwanted glitter. Tip: Use the fine tip on the glue to help you ‘draw’ the circles of glue. Varying the circle size takes the pressure off of squeezing perfect circles.
