Easter, which falls on 20 April 2014, celebrates the central event of Christian faith – the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The most important day of the church year, Easter is preceded by a 40-day period of fasting and fasting.
For Christians, the Easter egg is symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The hard shell of the egg represents the sealed Tomb of Christ, and cracking the shell represents Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. Easter egg hunts and egg rolling are two popular egg-related traditions. An egg hunt involves hiding eggs outside for children to run around and find on Easter morning. Eggs are rolled as a symbolic re-enactment of the rolling away of the stone from Christ’s tomb.
Here is a listing of the food and fun activities planned by the hotels in Doha. Have a blessed Easter!
