The day for the observance of F.aster
tn Kngland was fined by tit. Austin In
Wl A. D.
Omaha remembers Easter as the an
niversary of the big tornado.
Kaster Island waa so called because It
was discovered by ftoggaveen on Ksster
The latest Kaster In thl century will
occur In the year 1043, on April 2t.
The festival of Kaster Is now observed
by the Greek, Jloinan, Anglican and Lu
Only once during the last century, In
IMS, did Kaster fall on March 22, the
earlleat possible date.
It wu long a belief In Ireland and cer
tain part of England that the sun ac
tually danced on Easter day.
The earliest date for Easter Is Msrrh
22, but It will not occur oh this date dur
ing any year of the twentieth century.
The uae of eggs In connection with the
celebration of Easter Is of tlio highest
antiquity, the egg having been consid
ered In mythology as a symbol of resur
rection. Id the northern counties of England the
men parade the treeta on Kter Sunday
and claim the privilege of lifting every
worn art three times from the ground, re-
celving In payment a kla or a llvr
Jt was debated, t the time of the
Introduction of the Gregorian calendar,
whether Easier should continue to be a
movable feat or whether a fixed funday
after the 21t of March should be adopted.
' Owing to the disputes thst arose he
tween the eastern and western churches
It vii decided by the council of Nice
In 826 A. D, that "Everywhere the great
feast of Eaater ahould be obervd on
one and the same day."
In the Tyrol the Easter festlvsl Is one
of great ceremony. Kaster holiday bands
of musician visit every valley, singing
beautiful hymn to the accompaniment
of their instrument a they paa along,
men, women and children Joining In the
choru, bearing lighted torrhe of pine
In Germany the Kter hare Is almost
as Important a figure in nursery lore
a the Chrlatma fit. Nlcholaa. 'hll
dren are taught to believe that If they are
good a while hare will ateal Into the
houae on Easter eve and hide any num
ber of beautifully-colored eggs In odd
corners for the good Utile children.
