Easter 2021 will be observed on Sunday, April 4th. Easter is always a moveable feast held on a Sunday between March 22nd, and April 25th. This year, it's a little early but we hope for some spring-like weather.
Easter, and the many related church holidays such as Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, and Good Friday, are called moveable feasts. This is because they don't fall on a fixed date on the Gregorian calendar which follows the cycle of the sun and the seasons. Instead, these days follow what is called the lunisolar calendar, which is similar to Jewish holidays.
According to a Fourth Century ruling, the date of Easter is set for the first Sunday following the Paschal Full Moon. This is the first full moon of Spring and it occurs on or shortly after the vernal equinox also known as the spring equinox.
The earliest Easter can occur in any given year is March 22nd. and April 25th is the latest. If that first spring full moon occurs on a Sunday, then Easter is observed on the following Sunday.
While there is an abundance of flowers available at Fleurissant at this time of year, the quintessential Easter flower is of course, the Easter Lily.
At Fleurissant, we have been offering a high quality oriental lily called the Helvetia Lily from the Netherlands. Although they aren't known as the traditional Easter Lily, their elegant shape, beautiful pure white colour, and moderate scent is what we consider to be the ideal addition to your Easter decoration.
In addition to the Helvetia Lily, we carry Dutch daffodils, hyacinth, double parrot tulips, muscari, ranunculus, and anemones. Each flower symbolizes something different. Here are the meanings of the above flowers. If you are looking for more information, there is a terrific website that is known as the ultimate flower resource.
Hyacinth - sincerity and constancy
