The first Sunday following the first full moon of spring is when Christians celebrate Easter across the world.
While Easter’s exact date changes from year to year, it usually falls between March 22 and April 25. It comes after Lent, which is a 40-day season for Christians to fast, pray, and retrospect.
This is a time for Christians to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and reflect on the significance of his sacrifice. Lamb is a common main course and is often accompanied by vegetables, potatoes, and other side dishes. Traditional Easter foods include hot cross buns and chocolate eggs, which symbolize new life and rebirth. The Easter meal and traditional foods serve as a reminder of the religious significance of the holiday and provide an opportunity for families to come together and celebrate this important occasion.
