Read about Easter
Easter is a time of springtime festivals. In Christian countries Easter is celebrated as the religious holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the son of God. But the celebrations of Easter have many customs and legends that are pagan in origin and have nothing to do with Christianity.Traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored Easter eggs originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring.
Easter traditions differ around the world. Children in the United States and Canada say the Easter bunny or rabbit brings eggs. In Italy, Belgium and France, children say Easter eggs are brought by the church bells.
Hot cross buns, traditional Easter bread with icing in the shape of a cross, have been a feature of English culture since the Middle Ages.
