Each year, Christians around the world celebrate Easter. It is a celebration many hold on equal standing with Christmas in importance and significance. Easter is also a celebration of the beauty associated with the coming of Spring. Flowers are used as centerpieces, or to decorate homes and churches for Easter. Here are some of the flower varieties associated with Easter and why they’re significant.
Everyone knows the Easter Lily. The Easter Lily was thought to have grown at the site of the crucifixion. They are often taken as a sign of resurrection and white lilies are used to symbolize love and hope. It is said that presenting Easter lilies signifies your pleasure to be acquainted with the recipient.
Daffodils are also popular around Easter. These bell-shaped flowers are said to have first bloomed in the garden of Gethsemane at the time of Christ’s resurrection. They are also known as Easter bells and are taken as a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings. Your respect for a particular individual is indicated by presenting that person with daffodils.
While Tulips don’t hold any particular significance for Easter, they are still very popular because of their simplicity and vibrant colors. Tulips are associated as being the flower of eternal life. Tulips are also known to symbolize newness and purity. A bouquet of tulips can mean anything from enthusiasm to passion and desire.
Some consider the Daisy to be a weed, but it is still a desirable decoration in the Springtime. The flower gets its name because it opens during the day and curls its petals inward at night. Daisies are often used to symbolize purity and tranquility. When you present daisies it can symbolize loyal love, patience and simplicity.
With the coming of Spring comes the reemergence of the dormant beauty these flowers bring to the world. Bring them into your home and enjoy them and what they represent.
