Take a look here, for some interesting information on the Easter Cross.

Easter cross has a lot of significance for the Christian community. A cross symbolizes the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, reminding us of the blood that Jesus had shed in lieu of the sins committed by mankind. It is a sacred symbol that signifies faith. An empty Easter symbol cross, on the other hand, is indicative of the resurrection of Lord Jesus that represents the triumph of goodness over evil spirit and life over death. Thus this symbol of Easter, cross is indicative of both crucifixion and resurrection. If on one hand, it signifies sacrifice, and then on the other hand, it is a symbol of new life.

Different kinds of crosses are famous among various Christian groups. For example among Catholics and Protestants, Latin cross is in usage and Eastern Orthodox churches have adopted the Greek cross.

Crosses of different lengths can be spotted but six to seven feet long looks real impressive. It is used for prayer purpose during the Lent season. But on Good Friday, the cross usually a wooden one, is covered with black, a color for mourning for the death of Jesus. Black cross is meant to remember the sacrifices of Jesus but before the Easter Sunday, the draping in black is removed and the cross is rather decorated with flowers to honor the Jesus' return to life. Thus, Easter cross has a lot of significance for Christians.

    Dave!! I must commend you on having an excellent Easter site!!

    And since you popped up on my blog to post about it, I'm gonna ask you a favor:

    A lot of people buy pet rabbits for Easter, not realizing how ornery those rabbits can get when they grow up. Then, sadly, many of them are left at animal shelters and often euthanized because there are no homes for them, or because people who are used to having cats and dogs as pets have no idea how to deal with rabbits.

    www.rabbit.org is the website for the House Rabbit Society and has loads of useful information for people who want to have a pet rabbit hopping around their house. I highly recommend the experience. It can change your life.

    If you would say a few things in your blog discouraging people from impulsively buying live Easter bunnies as gifts, and link to www.rabbit.org for people who might find themselves with a live bunny on their hands who would like to know how to feed it and keep it from gnawing the legs off their chairs, that would be awesome, and would probably generate a whole lot of goodwill for you among the rabbit-loving web community!

    Thanks! And a very happy Easter to you!
