What is Easter?
Easter 2021 occurs on Sunday, April 4. However, Easter falls on a different date each year.
Easter Sunday and related celebrations, such as Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday, are considered “moveable feasts,” although, in western Christianity, which follows the Gregorian calendar, Easter always falls on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25. Easter typically falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the spring equinox.
Irrespective of denomination, there are many Easter-time traditions with roots that can be traced to non-Christian and even pagan or non-religious celebrations.
Examples of non-religious Easter traditions include Easter eggs, and related games such as egg rolling and egg decorating.
Many people—mostly children—also participate in Easter egg “hunts,” in which decorated eggs are hidden.
In some households, a character known as the Easter Bunny delivers candy and chocolate eggs to children on Easter Sunday morning. These candies often arrive in an Easter basket.
At Rainbow we will recognise and celebrate Easter with a visit from the Easter Bunny, an Easter Hat Parade and an Easter Egg hunt. We will also take the opportunity to further explore how Easter is celebrated around the World.
