The Easter Story

Easter Story
 The Easter lily was brought to United States from Japan, by the World War I soldier, Louis Houghton. Tradition has it that the beautiful white lilies sprung up where drops of Christ’s sweat, fell to the ground in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress.

 The Legend of the dogwood flower has two long pedals and two short pedals, the cross and at each edge is a dot for that symbolizes the nails and the center the crown of thorns. It was a firm and strong timber to be used for the cross. It was once big as an oak, because the tree felt so sad for what it was used for – God said it would never be strong again, but slender and dainty.

The egg and the rabbit were started as a symbol for new birth on Easter.
