Easter is all about celebrating the death and the subsequent resurrection of Christ as portrayed in the Bible. Easter takes place on the earliest Sunday after the twenty-first of March which is vaguely described as the foremost full moon during the spring season. As a result, Easter takes place between the twenty-second of March and the twenty-fifth of April.
The Easter Holiday Culture
Though it’s based on Christian traditions, several practices did not originate from Christianity like the symbolism of Easter eggs that comes with games involving real eggs that are rolled and egg-based decorations. Eggs are also stand-ins for birth fertility.
In some parts of the world, the Easter bunny shows up with lots of eggs made using chocolate and candy, delivered on the morning of Easter Sunday. The origin of this particular tradition is not known but it’s believed to be of German or American origin. Furthermore, it may have something to do with the procreation that takes place among rabbits in spring, also connecting it to new life or birth.
