A poster with information about Easter.
Information on poster:
Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It can also be considered a celebration of the beginning of Spring or Autumn, depending on the hemisphere.
Easter is held on the first Sunday after the full moon following the Spring Equinox. This means that Easter is not held on the same day every year and is held in March or April.
The Easter Bunny is said to visit on the night of Easter Saturday, and people celebrate by eating hot cross buns and chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday. In Australia, some people use the bilby as their symbol, as rabbits are considered a pest and cause a lot of damage to farms and native wildlife.
Easter eggs, the Easter Bunny and chickens are traditional symbols of Easter because
they are associated with new life and Spring.
