Easter is a 2,000-year-old Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ and marks the arrival of Spring. For many, Easter is all about chocolate bunnies, dyed eggs, and bouquets of daffodils and lilies, but the holiday is one of the most important observances of the year for Christians around the world.

The Fascinating History of Easter

Easter Sunday is coming up faster than Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail, which means it's almost time to get out the egg dyeing kits, start figuring out your Easter dinner menu and assembling your family's Easter baskets. Even though there is so much to do before the Easter Bunny arrives, carving out some extra time to read up on the history of the holiday can make it feel even more special.
