Hello, to all my blog readers! I just want to wish you all a happy and wonderful Easter Day today!
Easter is basically the day that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after he got crucified. Here in the United States, where I live, the holiday often falls on a Sunday, so it has not been declared a federal or public holiday. State and federal employees don't work on Sundays anyway, that's why. And many cities hold Easter parades. You can read more about Easter, it's history, and it's traditions here.
One of the symbols of Easter is the Easter egg. The egg is meant to symbolize rebirth and new life, which makes sense, considering what Easter is supposed to represent. Another Easter symbol is of course, the Easter Bunny. Originating among German Lutherans, the Bunny is a Santa Claus-like figure who gives colored eggs (and originally toys) to good children. You can read more about the bunny here.
Today is also April Fool's Day, so I'd take anything you read today with a big ol' grain of salt.
I guess this year, you can spend the day that that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus by playing pranks. Just the way the Bible intended, ha ha. :) Have a great day, everyone!
