Easter comes in spring, it’s beautiful time for everyone. The cold dark days of winter are over. Birds return singing. Grass and flowers begin to make a new carpet for the Earth. The date of Easter is not the same from year to year. But it always comes on the first Sunday after the first full moon in spring.
For Christians Easter Sunday is the greatest religious holiday of the year. It is a day of joy. It celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, who rose from death to new life many years ago.
Easter Week is called Maundy Week in the English-speaking world. On Thursday in Great Britain rich people give gifts to the poor: money, food, small gifts. Good Friday, that is also called God's Friday, is the saddest day of the week. In England people bake hot-cross buns. On Easter Saturday they colour eggs. In Great Britain children put the coloured eggs in green, pink, red or yellow baskets.
On Easter morning in the USA children get Easter baskets full of sweets, chocolates and candy eggs. Their parents hide Easter eggs all over the house or in the garden, they say that the Easter Bunny has hidden them, and the children hunt for the eggs.
