On the occasion of the Easter feast, Romfilatelia introduces into circulation a postage stamps issue dedicated to this event: Holy Easter 2013.
A fundamental Christian feast, the Easter was celebrated first by the Jews that were under the Egyptian reign in the time of Moses. The Hebrew calendar drawn up according to the moon phases, records the date of the Easter feast on the first full moon night after the spring equinox. For this reason, the holiday does not have a fixed date.
The image of the postage stamp reproduces the scene of Christ's Resurrection existing on a celebrating icon from the Patriarchal Cathedral heritage, where are kept in high honour the relics of Saint Dimitrios the New, the spiritual protector of the Cathedral and Bucharest city.
