Easter Lily

Happy Easter 2014!

Easter is a special spring holiday,
a quiet celebration of rebirth in all its forms.
This time of  year, Easter lilies are a favorite decorative choice.
And I've often wondered about the symbolism of the white lily at Easter.

According to an article in The Edmonton Sun,
white lilies are said to have sprung up on Mount Gethsemane,
where Jesus wept and prayed before his betrayal by Judas.
Therefore, white lilies are said to symbolize hope, peace, and the renewal of life.
