Easter is the Christian holiday in which we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus
On Palm Sunday the people praise Jesus in the streets of Jerusalem. He went by donkey. Thursday is the day of the Last Supper. Good Friday is the day that Jesus was Crucified. Easter Sunday is the day that Jesus rose again from the dead.
In my country at Easter we eat Easter eggs Traditionally these eggs were real eggshells painted with different colours and patterns The egg represents the empty tomb where Jesus was buried
Now, most people buy chocolate Easter eggs We have a special type of egg called a creme egg. It is chocolate on the outside and inside there is a white and orange sugary liquid.
The Easter Bunny is a tradition for children He brings the Easter eggs to the children on Easter Sunday The Easter Bunny carries the Easter eggs in a basket Rabbits are born in Spring, therefore they represent new life
The Easter chick is another Easter symbol The chick is born from the Easter egg The little chick represents new life, the beginning of Spring and a time to give thanks
