Theme: Easter Baskets
Project: 365 Days 2017 AH
Every Easter Nicole’s family prepares beautiful baskets
full of decorations and the food that they will be eating for Easter. Their tradition is to make the baskets and bring them to church to get them blessed.
People put different kinds of food. Each kind of food has it’s own meaning.
One of Nicole’s baskets had the following….
> Ham, it symbolizes great joy and abundance in celebration of Christ’s resurrection.
Eggs they indicate hope, new life and Christ rising from his tomb.
Salt is represented to add zest to life and preserve us from corruption.
Bread reminiscent of the risen Lord.
Horseradish is a reminder of the bitterness and harshness of the Passion of Jesus,
Cheese is a symbol to remind Christians of moderation.
Sausage links are symbolic of the chains of death that were broken when Jesus rose from the dead, as well as of God’s generosity.
