Happy Easter!

Easter is the holiday where Christians celebrate Jesus' resurrection. Churches tend to be fuller than usual on Easter Sunday, and many people dress more formally. Little girls wear fancy little Easter dresses, and the boys wear pastel-colored little shirts and pants or shorts. After church, families tend to gather for brunch (a big meal after breakfast time and before lunch time), where they might eat egg casserole, bacon or ham, fruit, and some type of roll or bread.

For both Christians and non-Christians, it is also a day of Easter Egg hunts (dyed hardboiled eggs or plastic eggs filled with candy) where children go around their house or outside in their yard with their Easter baskets and collect the eggs that have been left for them by the Easter Bunny. Usually they get chocolate and jelly beans.

-Alleluia, the Lord is risen!
-The Lord is risen, indeed! Alleluia!

-Happy Easter, sweetie! What did the Easter Bunny bring you?
-A chocolate Easter bunny and jelly beans!
