Easter is a Springtime festival. At this time Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
Traditionally Easter is associated with Spring and fertility. The Easter rabbit being a symbol of fertility and the Easter egg representing fertility and new life. The word Easter is believed to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon goddess of the dawn and Spring Eostre.
Easter in the West is a moveable feast. Easter Sunday follows the full moon on or after the Spring equinox 21st March. This year Easter is celebrated on the 1st April. In the East, Easter falls according to the Passover and is fixed. This year in the East, Easter will be celebrated on the 8th April.
Traditionally in Celtic lands this was a family day. Eggs which had been saved over Lent were now decorated and egg rolling was practised. This evolved in the 19th century to gifts of chocolate eggs.
