The history of Easter
While many people celebrate Easter and enjoy to be showered with gifts and candy during this festive season, it's important to understand the origins of the religious holiday and what some of the Easter traditions represent. In Early Christian days, Easter was a celebration of the completion of the holy week which symbolised the suffering of Christ. Traditions such as dyeing eggs during this holiday started way back in the thirteenth century, where people all over Europe would mark Easter celebrations with red eggs placed in baskets as a symbol of rebirth.
The Easter bunny, which is now an integral part of the Easter holiday, was actually the goddess of fertility and spring. With time, this ancient god crossed over into our modern day Easter festivities. Easter treats have a long history too, with folks in Medieval Europe enjoying jelly beans and marshmallow peeps during the festival. Today, Easter is celebrated with chocolate eggs, candy and the sharing of gift baskets.
