"How about just celebrating the sunrise? or are people worried they would run out of energy to celebrate every day?"
I agree. Most Christians are not aware that the rising of the christ is symbolic of the rising sun during the winter solstice.
All they have to do is look to the East(er).
In man, it represent the rise from mans lower nature to his higher nature, what people call enlightenment.
Most christians, or people in general who celeberate easter, dont even realeyes that Easter comes from a pagan/heathen tradition. It had nothing to do with Jesus. It was later attributed to Jesus' resurrection by the church.
I did not see it as something Rastafari would get involved in because Rastafari people dont sight death. So therefore, if you dont sight death, you dont sight a resurrection. But like Rasi said, people do many things under the banner of Rastafari.
Bless up Idren
I linked the Anthony B track for you too bro.
Btw, I remember you mentioning Jeru the Damaja on one post. I was looking through old tapes and found his "Wrath of Math" album. I met the brotha, along with Primo and Guru during the time of that album. They were doing a show in my town. Me and my bredren sold them an oz of corn. Jeru rolled a massive spliff and we all got irie. Awww..the good ole days of hip hop. The brothas were very cool. We all got VIP passes to their show.
Give thanks for the blast from the past.
