    Easter-observing Christians commonly refer to the week before Easter as Holy Week, which in Western Christianity begins on Palm Sunday - Easter and its related holidays are movable feasts, not falling on a fixed date.

    There are many Easter traditions around the world - these include: sunrise services or late-night vigils, flowering the cross, the wearing of Easter bonnets and the decoration and communal breaking of Easter eggs, Easter parades, the Easter Bunny and egg hunting.


    - The English term is derived from the Saxon spring festival Ēostre
    - The Easter Bunny legend began in Germany
    - The world’s largest Easter egg weighs in at 5000lbs
    - The UK’s first chocolate egg was produced in Bristol in 1873
    - The largest Easter parade is held in New York

    Does anyone have any plans this weekend?
