The Easter holiday stems from a lot of tradition…religious tradition in Christianiy it’s the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. In Western Christianity/Catholocism, Easter marks the end of lent, a 40-day period of fasting/repentation. In ancient times, on the other end of the spectrum, some history points to Easter dating back to the time of the Babylonians who celebrated the moon and sun-god dieties and fertility goddess Astarte/Ishtar. The history is pretty interesting, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Did you know where the easter bunny came from? The Easter Bunny is a fantasty character depicted as a rabbit who brings easter eggs. Dating back to early Lutherants in Germany, the Easter Bunny acted as a judge, determining whether or not children were good or bad. The Easter Bunny legend basically held that the Easter Bunny carried colorful eggs in his basket, candy and sometimes toys and brings them to children (sort of like the Santa Clause tale).
The long-standing tradition surrounding Easter now in the US for secular/religious people alike, is that parents/friends/loved ones would decorate and fill colorful baskets full of candies and gifts and gift them to their friends or children on Easter. Easter egg hunts, plastic easter eggs filled with goodies for parents to hide for children is also a popular Easter tradition.
