Just upon hearing the word “Easter”, the canvas of our mind paints the picture of cute and colourful Easter eggs, scrumptious meals, music, flowers, candle light and the ringing of church bells. Easter is the most awaited festival for Christians all over the world. Recognised as the greatest feast of the church year, Easter is a festival that commemorates the rising of Jesus Christ. However, the roots of its celebrations can be traced back to pagan times. The name Easter is believed to have been originated from Eostara- the goddess of rebirth hence the celebration was for Earth’s rebirth and resurrection with Easter eggs and Easter bunnies as symbols of fertility. Nonetheless this blend of religious ceremonies and general celebrations entails new spring clothes, decoration and hunting of Easter eggs and Easter baskets full of candy, presents and snacks!
