Easter is the most sacred holiday on the Christian calendar, celebrating the resurrection of Christ three days after his crucifixion on Good Friday. For devout Catholics and other Christians, this holiday arrives after 40 days of prayer, repentance and fasting.
Observed on a Sunday, it is typically celebrated with feast. Traditional foods include ham or lamb. Many churches celebrate with a pageant or procession telling the story of Jesus Christ. We have costumes for the figures who are important in Jesus' life such as Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Roman soldiers and more. The holiday has evolved into a day with many nonreligious aspects as well. The Easter Bunny is a popular, non religious symbol, which can be traced back to Germany in the 1500s. Spring is a time of rebirth and rabbits, which give birth to large litters of offspring, are a symbol of fertility. The Easter Bunny gives good children eggs, which are also symbols of fertility, and candy. The first known edible bunnies were created in Germany in the 1800s. Dress your child up in our Easter Bunny costume and he can help give out treats to the younger kids.
