Christmas and Easter Recipes for your holiday table and to cheer you up all through the festive season!!

About Christmas..


Millions of people around the world celebrate Christmas. It celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. The word Christmas meaning ‘Christ’s mass’ which commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ and we observe it on 25th of December with great pomp and show.. Christians and Non-Christians celebrate Christmas alike. Christmas comes always in winter. It spells out love, hope and joy. It waves a magic wand. The traditions related to Christmas vary from country to country. Santa Clause is a tradition.

The whole family gather together in one place wherever they are. People forget their personal problems and spend time to relax, shopping, cooking etc.. They exchange beautiful Christmas cards. The whole family go to church together for attending mid night mass.. All over the world schools and colleges were closed for almost ten days on this occasion..


Another very important part of this season is planting of a Christmas Tree in any corner of the house, especially in the entrance room. Earlier, people use to cut huge trees and decorate both trees and houses with festive decorations like Christmas bells, lights, balls, toys, stars etc. People prepare a lot of delicious food on these days including the delicious Christmas Cake, Black Forest Cake, Turkey etc.,

But, it’s so ironic that we could see all around people literally celebrating Christmas without Christ now days!! Guys, don’t forget that Jesus is the reason for this season!! I have one Christmas Card with me still, which was given to me by one of my students of yester years.. The words goes like this.. The magic of Christmas is not in the presents, but in His presence!!



What’s there with this Santa Claus, the white bearded man, the lights, the trees, the gifts etc., etc.? Christmas is about spreading the love of Jesus Christ to whomever we meet in our life.. to your family, friends and even to the unknown people..  Without Jesus, we could all die in our sins. His birth brought great joy to the world. Prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years before!! The star paved the way for those who were looking for the special child by stopping over Bethlehem!! It’s so important for us Christians to keep the true meaning of Jesus Christ’s birth in focus and reinforce to all.

This season makes you to cook lot of special and tasty dishes. We have compiled the Christmas Reicpes from seenasfoodbasket.com for you to make it easy. For the detailed recipe either click on the link or on the picture. Hope you all will enjoy this..

About Easter..

Easter, also called Pascha (Greek/Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

Most Christians refer to the week before Easter as "Holy Week"—it contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Maundy and Last Supper, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. In Western Christianity, Eastertide, or the Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the fiftieth day, Pentecost Sunday. In Eastern Christianity, the season of Pascha begins on Pascha and ends with the coming of the fortieth day, the Feast of the Ascension.

Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts which do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which follow only the cycle of the sun; rather, its date is determined on a unipolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established two rules, independence of the Jewish calendar and worldwide uniformity, which were the only rules for Easter explicitly laid down by the council. No details for the computation were specified; these were worked out in practice, a process that took centuries and generated a number of controversies. It has come to be the first Sunday after the ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or soonest after 21 March, but calculations vary.

Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many languages, the words for "Easter" and "Passover" are identical or very similar. Easter customs vary across the Christian world, and include sunrise services, exclaiming the Paschal greeting, clipping the church, and decorating Easter eggs (symbols of the empty tomb). The Easter lily, a symbol of the resurrection, traditionally decorates the chancel area of churches on this day and for the rest of Eastertide. Additional customs that have become associated with Easter and are observed by both Christians and some non-Christians include Egg Hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter Parades. There are also various traditional Easter Foods that vary regionally.
