Holy Saturday

The Christian holiday always following Good Friday, Holy Saturday is the celebrated day when Jesus of Nazareth who was put on trial and executed through means of crucifixion alongside two thieves the day before, is seen to lie in his tomb the day following. It is written that a man by the name of Joseph of Arimathea was the person responsible for requesting the body of Christ and taking it to the respective tomb to be laid to rest.

After Pontius Pilate, the roman who served under the rule of the cruel and callous Emperor Tiberius, responsible for the final obliteration of the Jesus of Nazareth, granted the release of Jesus Christs body to Joseph of Arimathea, he was wrapped in linen cloth and laid to rest in a stone tomb. The body of Christ was buried or laid to rest out of a matter of urgency as it is Jewish custom that the bodies may not be exposed to an overnight waiting and must all be buried or laid in their respective tombs and places of rest. It is written that roman authorities has secured the tomb, placed a seal on the stone covering the entrance and placed a guard at the entrance.

On a much lighter note, which involves the children and is usually widely known is the practice of painting or collecting and hiding easter eggs for the eater egg hunt that follows on the Easter Sunday. This practice however has been adopted from the pagan festival of Ostara.
