The lily is to the Easter season what the poinsettia is to Christmas.
What a beautiful symbol it is!
According to ancient Semitic folklore, the lily sprang from the tears of Eve when she was banished form the Garden of Eden. Later Christian lore says the lily was yellow until the day the Virgin Mary stooped to pick it.
Christian symbolism has the lily representing purity, chastity and innocence. Above all, it is the symbol of Christ’s Resurrection after the tragic day of His crucifixion and His death.
