What is Easter? Easter is the most important time in the Christian calendar. Easter forms part of Holy week; Holy week consists of Palm Sunday - the week before Easter Sunday, Good Thursday - the day of Jesus' Last Supper, Good Friday  - the day that Jesus was crucified and Easter Sunday the day Jesus rose from the dead.
Why do we celebrate Easter? Christians celebrate the story of Easter and rejoice in the belief that Jesus died for our sins and was resurrected (came back) from death. Jesus was reborn and lives today; he was reborn because God exists and is alive.
Why does the date of Easter vary? The date of Easter varies each year as it is based on the lunar calendar and the position of the moon. Easter is celebrated on the Sunday after the full moon following March 21st.
Good Friday is the day that Jesus died. It is called Good Friday as Jesus died for the good of mankind.
Easter Sunday is the day that Jesus came back to life; it is a day of celebration and the day that we exchange gifts of eggs.

To celebrate Easter you can treat your little monsters to a free meal here at The Shurland Hotel.
