Easter is a time for many of us to celebrate the beginning of Spring with family and friends around a table of food, often brunch and/or ham. Many get dressed up in their Sunday Best, attend a church service, dye Easter eggs, participate in Easter egg hunts, and enjoy chocolate and candies in their Easter baskets from the Easter bunny.
No matter how you celebrate, sitting down over a good meal with the ones you love is a wonderful way to celebrate.

1. DYEING EASTER EGGS
The tradition of decorating eggs of all kinds dates back to the ancient pagans. Then eggs represented rebirth and life, and to celebrate the new season of Spring, it’s said that people colored eggs and gave them to friends and family as gifts.
2. THE EASTER BUNNY
Another tradition that dates back to the pagans. This time celebrating the goddess of fertility Eostre, then later associating fertility with rabbits and the Spring season as a rebirth and a celebration of new life.
3. HOLLOW CHOCOLATE BUNNIES
Easter is associated with rabbits so it’s natural to see bunny-shaped things during this time. But why are most chocolate bunnies hollow? According to the R.M. Palmer Company, one of the oldest makers of chocolate bunnies in the U.S., the empty insides are just in consideration of your teeth.
4. EASTER BASKETS
Easter baskets are similar to a nest and in the German Osterhase tradition children would create nests for the mythical bunny to stop by their houses. Overtime the nests evolved into baskets.
5. HOT CROSS BUNS
It’s said the tradition started in the 12th century with a monk who was inspired to mark his rolls to celebrate Good Friday.
6. EASTER FASHION
There’s an old superstition that wearing new clothes on Easter means good luck for the rest of the year.
7. SUNRISE SERVICES
In honor of Mary opening Jesus’s tomb at dawn on Easter morning, many churches hold services at sunrise so parishioners can experience the event similar to how it happened.
8. EASTER HAM
The Easter Ham is another tradition that dates back to pagan rituals honoring spring and the goddess Eostre. Hunters often slaughtered hogs in the fall, then left them to cure all winter. By spring, pork was one of the only meats ready for spring celebrations like Easter.
9. GOOD FRIDAY KITES
According to a local Bermuda legend, a teacher once used a kite to give her students a visual of how Jesus ascended into heaven on Good Friday and the symbol and tradition quickly caught on.
10. EGG KNOCKING
Egg knocking is where two competitors tap the pointed ends of their eggs against each other to see which one cracks and which one doesn’t.
