Easter Celebration

The day of easter is Churchgoers swarm the churches for special prayers and ceremonies on Easter Sunday.

 People host sumptuous lunches and dinners and also organise Easter parties. 

Easter cakes are also prepared in Christian families. Exchange of gifts and colourful lanterns is one of the traditions of Easter.

Interesting games are arranged to keep up the festive spirit. In some places, games like egg hunt are a part of the festivities.

 Decorating Easter eggs are a part of the celebration where eggs are dyed, coloured and painted.

The ancient Saxons celebrated the return of spring with an uproarious festival commemorating their goddess of offspring and of springtime, Eastre.

 When the second-century Christian missionaries encountered the tribes of the north with their pagan celebrations, they attempted to convert them to Christianity.

 They did so, however, in a clandestine manner.
