Why Is the Lily Associated with Easter?
In Christian religions, lily flowers are a common motif that typically represent purity, whether that be within art or Biblical verses. It’s said that lilies grew where Jesus’ sweat and tears fell to the ground during his crucifixion—hence their association with his rebirth on Easter. Apart from its religious roots, Easter lilies also gained their name from the season when they bloom. When the blossom was brought to the United States, florists in Philadelphia would only have them available to sell around the time of Easter celebrations. With the combined power of Biblical references and increased production in the United States, lilies quickly became one of the most popular Easter flowers
on the market!
