Easter

Easter comes on April 12 and every year it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The New Testament of the Bible states that the festival of Easter takes place three days after Jesus Christ was crucified by Romans. The festival is always celebrated on a Sunday and the Sunday before is known as Palm Sunday which marks Christ arriving in Jerusalem. The non-religious aspect of the festival includes the tradition of Easter Eggs which are considered to be a symbol of fertility and birth and the Eater Bunny who gives chocolates to children on Easter.

The history of hot cross buns goes back to the 12th century. It is said that an Anglican monk baked the buns and made a cross on them to commemorate the day of good Friday. Over time the buns gain popularity and became a symbol of the Easter Weekend.
