Easter is a Christian celebration that marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his crucifixion. This begins on Good Friday and finishes on Easter Monday. For most Christians, Easter follows a period of penance called Lent that begins on Ash Wednesday and finishes on Holy Saturday. Lent is a 40 day period in which many people usually give up something such as sweets or chocolate to honour the period in which Jesus was said to have fasted. An extremely holy holiday for those who celebrate, Easter usually involves a lot of delicious food, from hearty roasts to playful chocolate eggs for the little ones. Looking for Easter food ideas?
