Today is Easter! Send a free Easter eCard to your loved ones in honor of the occasion! Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus. To celebrate, people attend church services, host festive meals, and participate in Easter egg hunts.
The Easter Bunny became a symbol for the Easter holiday in Germany during the 1600s. Children would make nests for Easter Sunday and if they were well behaved the Easter Bunny would fill them with brightly colored eggs. German settlers brought this tradition to America during the 1700s. Over the years the Easter nests evolved into decorated baskets, and the Easter Bunny’s morning deliveries expanded to include gifts, candy, and chocolate. Today, Easter is one of the highest grossing candy holidays, second only to Halloween.
Enjoy this festive occasion in the company of friends and family, decorate an Easter egg, and indulge in some delicious treats!
