Oh For Peeps Sake, Happy Easter!!!


Happy Easter to you! And happy spring break to all of the students out there! Easter, or Resurrection Day is a Christian festival and cultural holiday, celebrated to remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Easter is celebrated on different Sundays every year as it is based on a lunisolar calendar. A lunisolar calendar shows the Moon phase and time of the solar year or, the position of the Sun in the Earth’s sky. Easter falls on a Sunday between March 22nd and April 25th.

Do you dye eggs? Dying eggs is a tradition that has been around since Mesopotamian times, 8000 – 2000 BC and, is still an ongoing tradition in modern times. Families spend time together to celebrate Easter by dying eggs, typically chicken eggs. Originated in Ukraine, the beautiful Pysanky Egg, where you draw a grid pattern on the egg, then cover it in beeswax, after you let the wax harden you make special designs on the egg.  Sometimes the dyed eggs are used in Easter Egg hunts, other times, they use plastic eggs filled with some sort of goodie such as candy, money, small toys, etc.

Some of the most popular Easter candies are Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, Cadbury Creme Eggs, Starburst Jelly Beans, and one of the most recognizable; Peeps. Easter baskets usually contain at least one of these candies.
