  Easter, or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the
resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
          (亚斯塔路,或称复活节,是一个庆祝耶稣从死亡中重生的节日)
          耶稣被钉死在十字架上以后 ,基督徒们便祈祷着他能够复活,并将原本的Easter Day定为
          他复活的日子。看得出来,这个复活节在耶稣死之前就存在了。
          The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, a goddess of spring of the
east. Her symbol was the hare (a symbol of fertility).
          (单词Easter来自于萨克森语里的Eastra,是一位来自东方的春日女神。她的象征是野兔,这同时也是繁殖力的象征。小编注:你可以理解为“春天万物生”)
          所以这个节日,原本庆祝的其实是非基督教的春日女神 “Easter(亚斯塔路)”的生日。

          相传,这位女神的同父异母哥哥“巴力”进入灌木丛中寻找到了一枚天鹅蛋,然后就抱在怀里,结果蛋里孵出了一只兔子。兔子长大以后,就重生成了亚斯塔路女神。

          复活节的由来介绍
          Easter is the Christian commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus as a
religious holiday. Over the past year the spring equinox, the first full moon of
the first Sunday after Easter. Church of Christ in the early years of the date
of Easter, there have been controversial, causing momentary confusion, until 325
AD, the priests of the Church of the meeting before deciding on a day to
celebrate the unification of the Easter.
          There are a lot of the traditional Easter celebration, Easter egg is a
symbol of the most typical. In ancient times the eggs are often seen as more
children and grandchildren and a symbol of resurrection, because it breeds new
life. Later, Christians also gives new meaning to the egg that it is a symbol of
the tomb of Jesus, the life of the future is born from it and get rid of. Easter
eggs are often dyed red to represent the crucifixion of Jesus when the blood
flow, but also a symbol of happiness after the resurrection. There is an ancient
custom, the egg is cooked to the street children play. Their eggs from rolling
down the hillside: Who broke the last egg, will win, all property of all of his
eggs. White House to play this game every year, but is rolling eggs on the lawn
only.
          复活节是基督教纪念耶稣复活的一个宗教节日。每年春分过去,第一次月圆后的第一个星期日就是复活节。早年在基督教会中对复活节的日期曾经有过争议,引起一时混乱,直到公元325年,教士会议才决定整个教会统一在一天庆祝复活节。
          复活节有不少传统的庆祝活动,蛋就是复活节最典型的象征。古时人们常把蛋视为多子多孙和复活的象征,因为它孕育着新的生命。后来基督教徒又赋予蛋以新的涵义,认为它是耶稣墓的象征,未来的生命就是从其中挣脱而出世。复活节人们常把蛋染成红色,代表耶稣受难时流的鲜血,同时也象征复活后的快乐。还有一种古老的习俗,是把煮熟的彩蛋送给街头的孩子们做游戏。他们把彩蛋从山坡上滚下:谁的蛋最后破,谁就获得胜利,全部彩蛋都归他所有。美国白宫每年也玩这种游戏,只不过是把蛋放在草坪上滚动而已。
