In many nations, celebrations of the state’s founding event (from the signing of the American Declaration of Independence in 1776 to France’s Bastille Day in 1789) are a time almost all citizens rally together. That is because almost everybody sees the event itself as a moment of heroism and takes pride in its ongoing legacy. But Ireland’s Easter Rising, whose centenary will be solemnly celebrated this weekend, doesn’t quite fall into the category because it still inspires conflicting passions. Why?






(オックスフォード)
Easter
[uncountable, countable] (also Easter Day, Easter Sunday) (in the Christian religion) a Sunday in March or April when Christians remember the death of Christ and his return to life
