This year Easter on April 4 is going to be a special long weekend celebration at the Taj hotels where the chefs promise to lay out a true Easter feast for those in the mood to get away from at all with family and friends for at small gatherings. The Taj hotels in Goa and Kerala are all set for traditional Easter revelries to remember the Resurrection of Jesus, a day close to the heart of Christians the world over.
Resurrection day, according to the New Testament occurred on the third day after his burial following crucifixion by Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. For Christians the day is a day to celebrate new life, rebirth, and over the years the popular symbols have been Easter eggs, new born chicks, bunny rabbits…hence, we see the repetition of these symbols in festivities of Easter Sunday feasts on the Christian dining table.
