We would love to know how you will be spending this weekend as it is a lovely time to enjoy with family and friends having Easter Decorations up and arranging get-togethers.. We have been finding out about some Easter Traditions and where the words Easter and Good Friday originate and of course thinking about those yummy Easter Eggs.
This weekend is Easter Weekend and a nice long weekend to enjoy with family and friends, hopefully with some sunshine!. Easter is a Christian festival and starts on 6th April with Good Friday. The word "Good" comes originally comes from the word "Holy". Pagan Traditions say that the word Easter comes from the "Eoestre" and the Anglo Saxon word for April was "Eostre-Monath". There are many customs which centre on New Begginings and are represented by Easter Eggs and the Easter Bunny. It is traditional to give Easter Eggs as presents and many people Decorate their homes with Balloons, Banners and Cutouts and arrange Easter Egg Hunts for the children.
