!i Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 6, 2012 Easter Traditions by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Shortly Lent will end, and the Easter season will begin. The Lenten period of reflec- tion on one's inner life in an effort to repent and reform, culminates during Holy Week and the events lead- ing to Christ's Crucifixion on Good Friday. Sadness gives way to Easter Sunday and the hope that it brings for re- demption and eternal life. The Easter Season will con- tinue for 50 days ending on Pentecost Sunday. The joy and happiness as- sociated with the Easter sea- son manifests itself in many ways, most notably the reli- gious services that turn from penitential to joyous. There are also many secu- lar traditions associated with Easter, certain foods that we prepare only for the day, for Italians it would be pizzagaina, decorating our homes with lilies and tulips and of course, a personal fa- vorite, coloring Easter eggs, and hiding them, each with a prize, for children to find on an old fashioned Easter egg hunt. The Easter Parade, which takes place in many cities in the United States, most notably in New York, is a wonderful tradition associ- ated with Easter. The Pa- rade in Manhattan was most popular from the 1880's through the 1950's; at the peak of its popularity it was a widely attended event that witnessed New Yorkers dressed in their "Sunday Best." A special feature of the parade was the fabulous hats worn by the ladies as they strolled down 5 m Av- enue. The Parade is not as popular as it once was, yet for a period of time, it was the most prominent secular expression of Easter in the United States. Easter is a Day of hope, the promise of eternal life, a time of joy that is clearly expressed in the liturgy of the day, for many, and for us, it is the most popular cel- ebration of the year. With fond memories of the many Easters spent with family as we gathered at Nonna's. Happy Easter, Buona Pasqua. IMPORTANT PARISH MEETING!!!
