Easter in on April 1, 2018. This is the holiest day on the Christian calendar. Most people would think Christmas was the holiest day for Christians. Easter is to Christians the proof needed of the Divinity of Jesus Christ.
The Easter Egg and cracking it open symbolizes the opening of the tomb and the Resurection. This came along in the 15th Century.
The Easter Bunny is said to represent new life.
Easter Eggs were originally dyed red to symbolize the Blood of Christ.
Easter is no a National Holiday although it is celebrated by many people of many religions. Much like Christmas the traditions of giving out an Easter Basket, dying eggs, Easter Egg Hunt and getting together with loved ones is a common bond. Both are Religious Holidays yet only Christmas is a National Holiday.
