Egg hunts are popular around this holiday.

Communities often gather Easter morning to collect plastic eggs filled with candy.

History.com describes Easter as:

“A Christian holiday that celebrates the belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In the New Testament of the Bible, the event is said to have occurred three days after Jesus was crucified by the Romans and who died in roughly 30 A.D.

The holiday concludes the “Passion of Christ,” a series of events and holidays that begins with Lent—a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and sacrifice—and ends with Holy Week,

The holy week includes:

  • Holy Thursday (the celebration of Jesus’ Last Supper with his 12 Apostles),
  • Good Friday (on which Jesus’ crucifixion is observed),
  • and Easter Sunday.

Although a holiday of high religious significance in the Christian faith, many traditions associated with Easter date back to pre-Christian, pagan times.”

The Secular Celebration of Easter

Also, History.com says:

“In some households, a character known as the Easter Bunny delivers candy and chocolate eggs to children on Easter Sunday morning.

These candies often arrive in an Easter basket.

The exact origins of the Easter Bunny tradition are unknown, although some historians believe it arrived in America with German immigrants in the 1700s.

Rabbits are, in many cultures, known as enthusiastic procreators, so the arrival of baby bunnies in springtime meadows became associated with birth and renewal.

Notably, several Protestant Christian denominations, including Lutherans and Quakers, have opted to formally abandon many Easter traditions, deeming them too pagan.

However, many religious observers of Easter also include them in their celebrations.

An Easter dinner of lamb also has historical roots, since a lamb was often used as a sacrificial animal in Jewish traditions, and lamb is frequently served during Passover.

The phrase “lamb of God” is sometimes used to refer to Jesus and the sacrificial nature of his death.

Today, Easter is a commercial event as well as a religious holiday, marked by high sales for
