Summer vacation is the busiest time for tourist agencies and travel agents. A lot of people try to plan their year to spend summer vacations in some resorts to enjoy the sun and sea. This season is especially popular for the families with children of school age, as it is simultaneous with summer holidays. For travel business it means a lot of job, but also lots of profit.
Easter is one of the main events of the year for the Orthodox Christians and the most important Orthodox holiday. The word “Easter” comes from Greek and means “deliverance”. On this Holy Day we celebrate the deliverance of all mankind from the devil’s bondage through the sacrifice of Christ the Savior and the gift of eternal life and bliss. That is the fundamental sense of the Orthodox religion – God Himself became a man, died for us, and His resurrection redeemed people from the power of death and sin.
The Orthodox Church celebrates Easter for more than two thousand years. The apostles of Christ revealed its sense to others and passed the tradition of celebrating to their disciples. So, from generation to generation, the tradition of the Easter celebrations has reached us and spread throughout the world.
