“ Easter comes but once a year But when it does, we all know its here Children filling themselves with chocolate Dad's down the pub for a pint of beer! We go to the church for the wine and bread Dad's half asleep, and jerking his head Baby sister is here too, munching away On the free easter egg that the Priest gave us today But remember we must, that the Lord died for us And ascended into heaven to give us fresh lives For each and every one of us”
Easter, the principal festival of the Christian church year, celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his Crucifixion. The origins of Easter date to the beginnings of Christianity, and it is probably the oldest Christian observance after the Sabbath (originally observed on Saturday, later on Sunday). Later, the Sabbath subsequently came to be regarded as the weekly celebration of the Resurrection.
I had an Easter bunny, One day she ran away. I looked for her by moonlight, I looked for her by day. I found her in the meadow With her babies 1, 2, 3. So now I have four rabbit pets To run and jump with me.
