Christmas and Easter are the two major holidays for Christians. We spend weeks preparing and spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our families showing each other love and giving gifts. For Easter we don’t spend anywhere near as much time and money to prepare. We might get a new outfit, decorate some eggs and even buy some special candy, but that’s about it.
We tend to forget what the holidays we celebrate are about. Christmas is celebrating Christ’s birth and Easter is celebrating His resurrection from the dead. If we were to really think about it, the undeniable miracle of Jesus’ resurrection should probably be a more celebrated event than His birth. An even more amazing day that we as Christians don’t spend very much time at all to celebrate is Good Friday.
The two most holy days on the Christian calendar are Good Friday and Easter Sunday. These two days celebrate the two events that make up the basis of Christianity. Christ’s birth (Christmas) should be celebrated, but I don’t think it should be held as a higher holiday than Good Friday and Easter.
Last year I celebrated Easter on my website by talking about my wife’s fantastic lasagna. This year I don’t think there is anything greater that I could do than try to convey to you the holiness of Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
