Cultural Lesson: Easter

Average: 2.9 (7 votes)

To Christians, Easter Sunday is the day that Jesus rose from the dead after 3 days of being dead. Like Christmas.  Easter is celebrated by non-Christians; clearly, for many, the religious significance has been lost. Instead of being a religious celebration, these days, it's all about eating chocolate and having a good time.

Easter coincides with spring when we're surrounded with signs of re-birth. Images such as bunnies and Easter eggs are associated with Easter.

On Easter Sunday people  exchange chocolate eggs and children traditionally decorate eggs in bright colours; children also hunt for hidden eggs.  

Easter and the holidays that are related to it are known as moveable feasts, they are not on fixed dates, instead the date changes each year; however, Easter is always on a Sunday.
