Easter Day

Easter Day


Most English holidays have a religious origin. Easter Day occurs on the first Sunday after the full moon following the spring equinox[1].It is originally the day to commemorate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. But now for most people, Easter is a secular spring holiday, while for the children, it means, more than anything else, Easter eggs or chocolate eggs!

On Easter Sunday morning, the breakfast eggs are boiled in several pans in some families.Each containing a different vegetable dye, so that when they are served the shells are no longer white or pale brown in color, but yellow or pink, blue or green. The dyes do not penetrate[2] the shell of course.

Chocolate Easter eggs are displayed in confectioners' shops[3] as soon as Christmas is over. The smallest and simplest are inexpensive enough for children to buy with pocket money.  

These are of two sorts. Very small ones, perhaps a little longer than an inch in length, are coated thinly with chocolate on the outside and filled with a sweet, soft paste, called fondant.They are wrapped in colored foil in a variety of patterns. Slightly larger eggs, a little bigger, as a rule[4], than a duck's egg, are hollow. There is nothing inside at all-- just a wrapped chocolate shell. You break the shell and eat the jagged, irregular pieces.

As Easter approaches, more elaborate eggs than these fill the sweet-shop windows. They are accompanied by all sorts of small presents designed to appeal to children.They are often decorated with small fluffy chickens, made of wool, and with feet and beaks in card. Lucky children may receive several of these as presents from friends or relations.

Easter eggs are meant to give enjoyment-- and they do! They are pretty and decorative, they signal good wishes and shared happiness in the changing seasons.
