More About Easter Below

Reason We Celebrate Easter:
Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Modern Observance of Easter:

  • People go to Easter Sunday church services.
  • The Easter bunny comes to children's home early in the morning while they are sleeping and leaves Easter baskets filled with goodies. The rabbit symbolizes new life and rebirth.
  • Eggs are colored and hidden and children hunt for the Easter eggs. Eggs are a symbol of the new life that returns to nature at Easter.
  • Often extended family gets together for a special meal.
