On Easter weekend (usually at the end of March), children can attend egg hunts. It was Little Chicken’s first year in picking up her own eggs without any help. Inside each decorated plastic eggs are candies.
I did not know this until I researched it on the internet; The custom of an Easter egg hunt began because children believed that rabbit, a symbol of fertility, laid eggs, a symbol of new life, in the grass for them to find.
But Easter Sunday is much more than a day of colorful plastic eggs and chocolate bunnies.
As Christmas is celebrating Jesus’ birthday, Easter is celebrating Jesus’ victory over death.
