Welcome to Worlds of the Imagination, the home of the Fantasy Folk, a group of authors who read, write, and love scifi/fantasy. Tomorrow, we begin regular posts on our new blog. Those posts will reflect our various interests. As the author of fantasy worlds filled with vampires, Light Warriors, shapeshifters, and mythological figures, I’m interested in world building, mythology, culture, and history, especially the more risqué aspects you won’t find in a history book. Mondays are mine. Please visit often (the FOLLOW icon in the left column) and comment when you’re here. Click on our name icons to visit our webpages or on our book covers to read an excerpt or buy. Until tomorrow, a bit about Easter.
In the Christian religion, Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion. Easter for western Christians occurs on the first Sunday after the full moon following the March equinox. Easter is a major Christian holiday that is celebrated through religious services and traditions that have evolved over the centuries.
One tradition is the exchange of cards with Easter symbols and messages. My ancestors, packrats all, must have saved every card they ever received. I plan to share some of their vintage postcards occasionally. The Easter card above dates to about 1910. The cards were filled with Christian symbols. Eggs have been a symbol of spring since ancient, pre-Christian times. An egg is also a symbol of the rock tomb out of which Christ arose from the dead. A chick, soon to hatch out of the egg, also symbolizes new life or re-birth. The lambs represent Jesus, “the Lamb of God.” The child leading the lamb is also a symbol of new life. For a risqué Easter card, check out my webpage HERE. Ignore the trashy bling on my webpage – I have a book release tomorrow
