Easter celebration (the Passover festival) dates from about 4,000 years ago when Jewish people remember that God saved them from slavery in Egypt. Jesus was a Jew and so celebrated the Passover. Passover takes place in the first month of the Jewish New Year (14-15 of the month of Nisan). The Jewish calendar follows the cycle of the moon, so the date changes a bit every year. The first Jewish Christians added Easter celebrations to the Passover festival and because Jesus rose from the dead on a Sunday, so Easter Day became the first Sunday after Passover.
Over the years, the Christian festival moved in date slightly from the Jewish Passover, so they don’t now have the same date, but sometimes they are very close! The Christian date for Easter also follows the moon, so it also changes every year. Whichever date Easter falls on, we can always count on a special celebration from the Rhodes Team in Flower Mound. Every year the Rhodes teams ushers in Easter celebrations with a makeshift petting zoo filled with rabbits for the kids, and parents to enjoy. There are games, face painting, food, and plenty of pictures, provided on site by Just Say Cheese Photos.
