Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. It is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon on the Spring Equinox between March 22nd and April 25th. Every Easter, the Easter Bunny hides eggs for children to find. In the morning, kids do an Easter Egg Hunt, where they try to find all the hidden eggs. Sometimes the eggs are real, and can be eaten. Sometimes the eggs are plastic and filled with prizes like coins or candy. In the 1700s, children would make nests out of sticks and leaves so the Easter Bunny could leave them eggs. Today, children collect eggs in colorful baskets. Many families in America do Easter Egg Hunts. Additionally, every year there is a big Easter Egg Hunt at the White House in Washington D.C. to celebrate Easter.
This year Easter will be on April 1!
