Easter Peacock


Christians have used peacocks as a symbol of immortality. This came from an ancient legend that the flesh of the peacock never corrupts, and so the peacock is also associated with the resurrection of Christ. The peacock is often depicted in Christian art such as in Fra Angelico’s Adoration of the Magi and other Nativity scenes as well as in the catacombs. You can even spot one in the Last Supper by Domenico Ghirlandaio which is used as the header over at Catholic Cuisine









Hape Lacing Peacock from our 2016 Easter Baskets and pulled out again for this Easter season

We've made Peacock Cupcakes, Peacock Candy, Peacock Chocolates and Peacock Pizzas in the past but this year we'll have to try a Peacock Fruit Platter

  2. What a fun and brightly colored toy! I remember with fondness lacing cards from my own childhood. A fun activity for your little ones to share.
