Easter is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary as described in the New Testament. Easter follows Lent, which is a forty-day period of fasting and praying – most people now do not fast completely but give up eating or drinking something, my mum gives up eating chocolate and crisps. (I don’t know how she does it!!)
The last week of Lent is called the Holy Week which includes Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday and it is this last day that we celebrate. Its has become tradition to give chocolate eggs as a gift to celebrate Easter. This has evolved over the years from the custom of giving real eggs which has been stained red. The original egg was given as it represent the empty tomb, though an egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb, a bird hatches from it with life; similarly, the Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.
