DID YOU KNOW?
WHAT IS EASTER?
A lot of people celebrate Easter yet have no idea what it's really all about. For some people it's all about the Easter Bunny, chocolate Easter eggs and fun Easter egg hunts in the garden. However, Easter is really a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, it's the most important festival celebrated in the Christian calendar.
Jesus was crucified on the Friday (which is known to us now as Good Friday), it is a day of mouring in church for many Christians and Easter Sunday marks Jesus' resurrection.
So why do we give each other eggs at Easter? Thie giving of eggs actually celebrates new life and for Christians the egg is a symbol of the miracle of Jesus' rising from the dead, and when they are cracked open, they symbolis the empty tomb.
