What is the history of Easter? Easter has different meanings for people with different beliefs. In old cultures in England that worshiped nature there was a festival in April for the Goddess Eostre which had hares and eggs in it. When new people moved into the area the festival changed and became the celebration we know now. The common idea around Easter is new life and new beginnings.
Easter has been a custom byReligions for hundreds of years as a festival about theCrucifixion and Resurrection of Christ. A number of different churches celebrate this event because they all believe that Jesus was bought back to lifeand they celebrate each year to honour and remember.
Why do we celebrate Easter? My family celebrates Easterto celebrate the turning of the seasons and the start of new life.
