Here are five small facts about easter that you probably did not know:
Where did the easter bunny come from? The unofficial mascot of every easter vacation was probably borrowed from a pagan traditional holiday that occurred during the same time period as easter each year. Good children would get a nest of colored eggs as a present from this Christian converted image.
Every country celebrates their easter holiday in their own individual way. For example, Sweden has an Easter Wizard instead of an Easter Bunny. Popular Easter Symbols include crosses, baskets, nests, lambs, and eggs!
76% of people eat the ears of the chocolate bunnies first. In the US, 90 million chocolate bunnies, 91.4 billion eggs and 700 million peeps are produced each year. Easter is the largest candy consuming holiday in America after Halloween.
Egg rolling is a traditional game played at the White House every year since 1878, but the game is said to have been born in 1814. Children roll a decorated egg down grassy hills; did you know that many countries have their own version of this tradition, including Germany and Denmark?
Easter is the oldest Christian holiday and the most important day of the church year. The date when easter falls is different every time: it is based on the lunar calendar and the position of the moon. Easter is celebrated on the Sunday after the full moon following March 21st.
