Feeling stuck planning activities for your little ones for the coming Easter?
Before we head into Easter activities, do you know what is Easter really about and why is it related to eggs?
Let’s dive into the facts!
Easter, also called Resurrection Sunday, is the celebration of Jesus Christ’s rising from the dead after His crucifixion which took place on what we now term Good Friday.
Why is it also called Resurrection?
According to the article on Easter For Kids and Teachers: Christ’s return (or rising) from death is called the Resurrection. Christ’s tomb was empty three days after His death, which is commemorated on Good Friday. His followers saw Him and talked to Him after this. Christians, therefore, believe that they have the hope of a new life (an everlasting life in Heaven) after their earthly death.
Why is there Easter bunny and eggs?
How the bunny appears is unclear. However, rabbits stem from pagan tradition and are known to be prolific procreators. They are known for their energetic breeding and symbolized fertility. The eggs, which have been associated with pagan festivals celebrating spring, symbolize new life.
Do you know that not every country associate Easter with bunnies? Some countries associate with other types of animals like foxes and cuckoo birds.
