Easter Sunday is a special time of the year and if you wish to send flowers to your church, then getting church flower arrangements is simply a matter of contacting Brant florist. Easter Sunday is a special time and is the first Sunday after the first full moon following the northern spring equinox. Easter Sunday can occur between March 21st and April 25th. And Easter is one of the oldest festivals in the Christian church. Taking flowers to church on an Easter Sunday is a wonderful way to show your appreciation and respect for this special time of the year. What many people don’t know about Church flower arrangements for Easter Sunday is where the tradition began. According to historians, the tradition dates back more than 2,000 years to Roman times – before the birth of jesus Christ – and reflects the people’s wish to ensure a bountiful spring. During the equinox – March 21st – they would adorn the altars of their gods and goddesses with flowers. Today, the tradition of White Easter Lilies has its roots in the stories of both Jesus and the Virgin Mary. Legend tells that beautiful trumpet shaped aromatic pure white lilies sprang up at the feet of Jesus as his tears touched the ground. Another tale tells that we adorn our Church with floral arrangements of White Easter Lilies because this was the flower found in the tomb of the Virgin Mary after it was visited three days later. Whatever story or legend you choose to believe, one thing is for sure, Easter Sunday and the arrangements of flowers you will see at Church are both beautiful and inspiring reminding us of purity, renewal and new life.
