photoblog image Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday


He is risen.

This is the statue of Christ on the south back of the River Tagus at Lisbon, Christ looks towards the city. The picture was taken from a moving car.

.....

Easter is the most important festival of the Christian calendar, it marks the day that Jesus rose from the dead.

It's a time of renewal and rebirth, hence Easter Eggs.

Easter is a moveable feast. At the Council of Nicea in AD 325 it was decided that it should be celebrated on the Sunday closest to the first full moon after the vernal (Spring) equinox which is on either 20th or 21st March.

Eastern churches celebrate at Easter a different time.

There have been several attempts to fix the date, the last consultations were in 2001.

No Easter in Thailand, Eleanor...the feast didn't move to Thailand, so I cannot find a chocolate egg anywhere.
Well chosen image again.

A fine shot with the stonework standing out well against the subtle colours in the sky. No doubt after a very cold Easter in the UK, there will be more talk about fixing the date - probably in June when its warmer!
Beautiful and appropriate image Ellie!

I have read in the paper this morning that the last time that Easter Sunday fell this early as on 23rd March, was 95 years ago. This apparently is the earliest it can be.

Great capture and comment. Just love it.
Very good!
what time did take the photo?
For a second I thought it was a picture of Christ the Redeemer in Rio. Nice shot.
impressive monument !
Lovely picture Ellie, especially as it was taken on the move. The composition is excellent.
River Tejo, nice framing.
