1. What is the meaning of easter

Good Friday is the day when Jesus Christ gave his life for us when he was crucified on the cross that also symbolises the christian culture. After he was crucified he was moved into a tomb which was inside a cave then covered up by a large stone. On Sunday, three days after the death of Jesus his mother and her friend came, and there on top of the stone which ad been moved sat an angle on the stone which had also had moved out off the way. When they both stepped into the grave the body was gone. Later that day he showed him to his followers. So the reason why we celebrate easter for the love that showed Jesus for us we can rejoice and celebrate in his love knowing that we can always ask for forgiveness.

2. Why do we have hot cross buns.

On Good Friday some christians fast or go hungry except for three times a day nine o’clock, twelve o’clock and six o’clock where they have one hot cross bun per day the bread symbolizes the bread of the last supper, the cross on top mean the cross that Jesus was crucified on and sometimes they have raisins which also symbolises the wine that was passed around also during the last supper.

3. What is the reason of easter eggs

Easter eggs symbolizes the tradition of new life the reason why we have them on easter day because that was the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Easter is eggs also show tell a story that life will always rise over and conquer death. The reason why some big eggs are hollow are because it shows the stone of the tomb was moved which is shown by the rapper the reason why it is hollow though is to show that there was no body in the tomb and the cave on the easter egg is the shell.

4. What religious groups do not celebrate easter

There are many religions that celebrate easter but there are also many that don’t some of these include Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism.Some refuse to celebrate them because of the all too common mistaken belief that they were originally pagan. This belief is a result of the reformation when some protestant or puritan groups attacked everything from the Catholic Church, including its festivals, for being unbiblical, devilish or pagan. This was not based on any historical evidence, just on general anti-catholic feelings. They also don’t celebrate it because of their “God”.
