Wishing you all the love and happiness that only Easter can bring. Have a joyous celebration with your family!
Why do we celebrate Easter as the most important Holiday for the Christians? Following is a brief explanation of why and how Easter is celebrated in Christian communities:
Easter Sunday is the most important day on the Easter holidays. The celebration begins on Saturday night from Holy Saturday to Easter Sunday with a service. This service commemorates the resurrection of Jesus. Symbolically this is done through the light. At first it is dark in the church, which means the death of Jesus, but light, which means the resurrection of Jesus, is brought into the room and into life through candles. After this service, the bells ring again, which had stopped after the day of mourning Good Friday.
The rest of the day is celebrated together with your close family.
Easter is considered as a celebration that represents new life and lots of yummy Chocolate Easter eggs brought by an "Easter Bunny". May you enjoy this day surrounded by your family, smiles, sunshine, plenty of chocolate, and lots of other sweet treats. Do you know where this "Easter Bunny" tradition comes from?

Hoping your Easter is full of the sweetest things in life!
