I want to take this time and wish everyone of our followers a Very Happy Easter Holiday. Also wanted to share few tid bits about the Easter Holiday. Some stuff that is not known much about Easter. So lets begin.
The Easter date goes back to circa 30 AD. The holiday is celebrated as Holy Week and really starts with Maundy Thursday when the last supper took place. Then Good Friday the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Then Easter Sunday. The resurrection of Jesus. The holiday is a world wide holiday and in many countries people are off and celebrate Good Friday and/or Easter Monday too. The holiday is tied to many religious events too.
Now for a few unknown tidbits. For example the Astronomical and Gregorian Easter is the same date. The Julian calendar date is actually 08 April this year. All 3 wont be the same date until 2025. The Easter Bunny made its way to the US in the 18th century. Its believed to originated in Europe, where it was actually the Easter Hare. Pysanka is the name of painting eggs. The idea of the Easter Bunny giving candy and eggs originated in Germany. There is plenty more out there but wanted to share of few.
So in closing. Happy Easter from Emerald Inspection Service. We will be open on Monday! 352-322-2700
