The hues of Easter
published: Sunday | April 9, 2006

EASTER COLOURS wheel is a real comprehensive one and encompasses innumerable colours. Most of the people are unaware about the Easter colour philosophy. In fact, all the colours of Easter have their own unique significance.

Use fresh flowers, new curtains or new chair seat covers to bring an abundance of spring-like energy into the home.

RED: this colour is associated with the blood that Jesus Christ had shed for mankind. Thus the colour red is a symbol of love and sacrifice for the goodness of humanity.

WHITE: this Easter colour signifies purity and grace.

GREEN: the colour green brings ray of hope. Green is the colour of grass.

PURPLE: Easter colour purple is indicative of royalty. It is said that the colour purple brings wealth.
