Why is Easter celebrated?
Not only is Easter an important religious festival, it also has strong ties with Spring, new life, and fertility. Easter is an important holiday on the Christian calendar that celebrates the resurrection of Christ. However, the symbols of Easter such as eggs and bunnies have roots that go even further back to pagan times and are linked to fertility goddesses, celebrating renewal and rebirth.
Why is Chocolate associated with Easter?
As a holiday custom, hard boiled eggs would be decorated and saved until Easter. Over time replica eggs would be made that could hide a small gift inside. By the 19th century this evolved into the chocolate version of the Easter egg that we know today with famous chocolatiers like Joseph Cadbury leading the charge.
What are the best Easter gifts for people who don't like chocolate?
If you need an Easter gift for someone who doesn't eat chocolate, there are plenty of alternatives to choose from. As Easter has close ties with spring, flowers, plants, or gifts for the garden can be a good option. Presents for the home or books are also a popular choice.
What are nice ways to celebrate Easter with family?
Many families like to get together at Easter to spend time together and celebrate the holiday by preparing a meal, exchanging gifts, or playing games. For those who enjoy being outdoors, sharing a quiet afternoon tea or spending time in the garden can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Those who are regular church-goers may attend an Easter service with their close relatives or friends. Most churches will put on special Easter events and readings to celebrate the annual holiday event and bring together the local community.
