Symbols of Easter.

Many of the symbols and traditions of Easter are connected with renewal, birth, good luck and fertility.

The Cross.

Of course as it is a Christian festival one of the main symbols is a cross, often on a hill. When Jesus was crucified, the cross became a symbol of suffering. Then with the resurrection, Christians saw it as a symbol of victory over death.

Palms. In Russia Willow.

The week of Easter begins on Palm Sunday. Why Palm Sunday? Well, in Roman times it was customary to welcome royalty by waving palm branches. So, when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem people welcomed him with palm branches in their hands.

In Russia this day is called Willow Sunday and people try to decorate their houses with willow branches.

Easter Eggs. The "egg" and "spring chicks" was a fertility symbol used by many peoples dating back many thousands of years. The egg as a fertility symbol, was also important too, and as people started to keep domestic fowl, such as chickens, the observation of hen's eggs hatching bringing forth yellow coloured chicks was interpreted into their celebrations as the "sun" being re-born.

Easter eggs are a very old tradition going to a time before Christianity. Eggs after all are a symbol of spring and new life.

Exchanging and eating Easter eggs is a popular custom in many countries. In the UK before they were replaced by chocolate Easter eggs real eggs were used, in most cases, chicken eggs. The eggs were hard-boiled and dyed in various colors and patterns.

The Easter Bunny.

Rabbits, due to their fecund nature, have always been a symbol of fertility.The Easter bunny (rabbit) however may actually be an Easter hare. In the UK children believe that if they are good the "Easter Bunny " will leave chocolate eggs for them.

An Easter Bonnet .

An Easter Bonnet represents the tail-end of a tradition of wearing new clothes at Easter, in harmony with the renewal of the year and the promise of spiritual renewal and redemption. The "Easter bonnet" was fixed in popular culture by Irving Berlin, whose frame of reference was the Easter parade in New York City, a festive walkabout that made its way down Fifth Avenue from St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Listen to the text one more time and say, what each of them symbolizes. Look at the BB, these phrases will help you.

The cross symbolizes…

The palms symbolize…

The eggs symbolize…

The Bunny brings…

The bonnet symbolize…

Who would like to sum it all up?

All right, here you are some sentences in the cards. Read them and say if they are right or wrong. Tell me, what phrases do we use when we agree/disagree? Look at the screen.

  • Britain is full of customs and traditions.

  • Eggs do not play an important part in Easter celebration.

  • Easter is an ordinary holiday.

  • Easter Day is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon.

  • Easter celebrates the rebirth of Christ.

  • Easter does not have any origins in pre-Christian times.

  • Easter the time of new life and new beginnings.

Let’s work with words. Custom, part, way of life, important, ordinary, dawn, high point, ancestor, arrival, Hemisphere, feast. Make up word-combinations with these words. And now let’s turn to the reading.

Now we’ll read the text about Easter and see if you were right.

From Scotland to the Channel, Britain is full of customs and traditions. A lot of them have very long histories. Some are funny, some are strange. But they're all interesting and are all part of the British way of life. Easter is the time for holidays, festivals and time for giving chocolate Easter eggs, the day of parties, and above all a celebration that Jesus raised from the dead and lives forever. Eggs play an important part in Easter celebration; they are given to children. The eggs are either hollow or have a filling, and are usually covered with brightly colored silver paper. Easter is much more than ordinary holiday. It is the oldest and the most important Christian Festival, the celebration of the death and coming Jesus Christ to life again. For Christians, the dawn of Easter Sunday with its message of new life is the high point of the year. Easter is a feast that is not always held on the same date each year. Easter Day is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon. Like most Christian festivals, Easter has its origins in pre-Christian times. Our ancestors believed that the sun died in winter and was born anew in spring. The arrival of spring was celebrated all over the world long before the religious meaning became associated with Easter. Today, Easter celebrates the rebirth of Christ. Even though Easter is associated with spring here in England, it is not so in countries in the Southern Hemisphere. In these countries Easter falls near the end of autumn. However, through out the world Easter is felt to be a time of new life and new beginnings.

Let’s turn to our cards. Do you agree or disagree?

  • Britain is full of customs and traditions.

  • Eggs do not play an important part in Easter celebration.

  • Easter is an ordinary holiday.

  • Easter Day is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon.

  • Easter celebrates the rebirth of Christ.

  • Easter does not have any origins in pre-Christian times.

  • Easter is felt to be a time of new life and new beginnings.

Now I’ll read you the beginning of the sentences, you are to find it and read the whole one.

  • Today, Easter celebrates…

  • Eggs play an important part…

  • Easter Day is celebrated…

  • Some are funny…

  • In these countries…

  • Our ancestors believed…

  • It is the oldest…

That’s fine. Who wants to sum up this text?

As you know, last Sunday we celebrated Easter. What can we ask each other about this holiday? I want you to make up dialogues and tell each other about your celebrations. Use the Past Simple. And try to use the words which we guessed.
