Easter – An Important Christian Holiday

0

Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of the dead of Jesus Christ as told in the Bible. Christians are found in church on Easter. Some Christians participate in an Easter vigil or nighttime mass, sometimes held by candlelight. Easter is never on a set date. It is observed on a Sunday between the end of March and the end of April. The exact date is calculated based on a different calendar. Many public schools in the U.S. have a week-long vacation around Easter time. Sometimes this break is called Easter or Spring break.

复活节是基督教的节日,庆祝圣经中耶稣基督死者的复活。复活节在教堂里发现基督徒。一些基督徒参加复活节的守夜或夜间弥撒,有时由烛光举行。复活节从来没有设定的日期。它在三月底到四月底之间的星期日进行观察。确切的日期是根据其他日历计算得出的。美国的许多公立学校在复活节时间大约有一个为期一周的假期。有时,这个假期称为复活节或春假。

In the United States, Easter is also celebrated as a secular holiday. It is associated with the beginning of spring and symbolized by bunnies, flowers, and dyed eggs. Many children in the U.S. believe in a fictional character called the Easter Bunny. According to the myth, the Easter Bunny leaves baskets full of candy for children. Sometimes these baskets are hidden and the children have to find them on Easter Sunday morning. Candy that is usually inside an Easter basket can include chocolate in the shape of bunnies or chicks, jellybeans, and marshmallows.

在美国,复活节也是世俗的节日。它与春天的开始有关,以兔子,花朵和染色的鸡蛋为代表。美国的许多孩子都相信一个叫做复活节兔子的虚构人物。根据神话,复活节兔子把装满糖果的篮子留给孩子们。有时这些篮子被藏起来,孩子们不得不在复活节星期天早上找到它们。通常放在复活节篮子里的糖果可以包括兔子或小鸡,豆形软糖和棉花糖形状的巧克力。

Another activity associated with Easter is an Easter egg hunt. According to popular mythology, the Easter Bunny hides painted eggs and children need to find them. While real eggs used to be used, now it is common to use plastic eggs filled with candy. There are usually public Easter egg hunts in parks across the country. The White House even hosts an Easter egg hunt. Another Easter tradition associated with Easter is dying real eggs in different, usually pastel, colors like light pink, blue, and yellow.

与复活节相关的另一项活动是复活节彩蛋狩猎。根据流行的神话,复活节兔子隐藏着彩绘的鸡蛋,孩子们需要找到它们。虽然以前使用的是真正的鸡蛋,但现在通常使用装满糖果的塑料鸡蛋。全国各地的公园通常都有公共复活节彩蛋狩猎活动。白宫甚至举办复活节彩蛋狩猎活动。与复活节相关的另一种复活节传统是使真鸡蛋以淡粉色,蓝色和黄色等不同的颜色(通常是柔和的)垂死。

In New York City, people take to Fifth Avenue to participate in the Easter Parade. The Easter Parade isn’t a parade with marching bands and floats. People walk up and down Fifth Avenue showing off elaborately decorated hats or Easter bonnets.
