Easter is such a fun time of the year filled with family get together’s and lots of chocolate being consumed. It also has an important religious meaning as it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The holiday is a series of events that begin with Lent, a 40 day period of fasting ending with Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The bible states that Christ died on Good Friday and came back to life on Easter Sunday.
Easter falls on a different date each year depending when there is a full moon in spring. This year it falls on Sunday April 21st where it is tradition on this date to celebrate with family and friends and be gifted edibles such as Easter eggs and children have the fun of going on Easter egg hunts to get as many decorated or edible eggs as they can in their baskets.
For children the most exciting part of Easter is eating the mountains of chocolate they receive which has now become a tradition, however in the early years eating eggs was not allowed by church wardens during the lead up to Easter and any eggs laid that week were saved and decorated to be given to the children as gifts during Easter Sunday. The Victorian era altered this tradition and replaced the traditional egg with satin- covered cardboard eggs filled with Easter gifts. This tradition has grown and grown each year and now boasts an array of chocolate and other Easter gifts to share amongst family and friends.
Easter is also famous for the Easter bunny. It is thought that this story came to life in the 19th Century and rabbits, which always breed large litters, became a symbol of new life fitting perfectly into the traditional Easter story.
