Spring is when the whole earth is chanting of new life and bursting into color! The most exciting thing is that all of nature seems to erupt in the colors of Spring to surround us with feelings of joy and hopeful anticipation. We celebrate Spring with spring festivals such as St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.
Bring out your green on St. Patrick’s Day. The folklore says wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns, which like to pinch anyone they can see. Some people also think sporting the color will bring good luck. The shamrock is a symbol that we associate with St. Patrick’s Day, which represents the start of spring. We wear a shamrock on St. Patrick’s Day because, legend says, St. Patrick in his teachings used its three leaves to explain the Holy Trinity, with one leaf representing the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, respectively. More recently, the four-leaf clover has also come to represent the Holy Trinity, with the fourth leaf symbolizing God’s Grace. Traditionally, four leaves were considered lucky because they reflected the shape of a cross and were thought to be magical and sacred. The four-leaf clover was regarded by ancient Celts as a charm against evil spirits, these days a four-leaf clover is considered a symbol of good luck. @Besste has a nice selection of Celtic jewelry. From intricate knots to iconic shamrocks, Celtic jewelry is rich in symbolism and history. These timeless pieces are a perfect way to show off your pride on this special holiday. On St. Patrick's Day people also gather to watch parades as they march through city streets. Dinner traditionally is corned beef and cabbage with ice cold Guinness. However you celebrate, here’s hoping it’s a Lucky Day!
Easter time we decorate homes with colored Easter eggs, put out baskets for the Easter bunny to fill, exchange chocolate eggs and bunnies. It’s a day for some fun family activities too, like decorating hard-boiled eggs, Easter egg hunts - searching for the hidden treats around the house and yard. Spring and Easter are associated with pastel colors. Pastel colors help people to breathe the fresh air and capture the feeling of winter ending with its black and white colors and start the traditional celebration of spring and life. Easter Pastel colors may include white, purple, pink, red, gold, silver, gray, yellow and green. At @Besste there are a large number of Easter Pastel color variations and possibilities that you can choose from that will look fresh, stylish and trendy. These Easter Pastel colors also are a way to embrace the refreshing atmosphere of springtime reflects our access to modern art and naturally the desire for original beauty that surround us in the natural world.
From all of us here at Besste, we wish you a Happy Easter and a Joyous Spring Season!
