Each year in the springtime, much of the mainstream Christian world celebrates a holiday called “Easter”. Many traditionally assume that this holiday originated with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Is that true? Does the term “Easter” refer to Jesus is some way?
On Easter morning, many families wake up early so they may, as they deem it, “celebrate the resurrection of Christ” and attend a church service. Others may go out to brunch with their loved ones as part of their Easter tradition. There will be a great number of other people that participate in an Easter egg hunt or surprise their kids with a giant chocolate bunny in a colorful basket.
