Easter celebrates new starts. It definitely showcases the importance of forgiveness that leads to a new birth. Easter also celebrates family and love. Dressing up, meditating, taking nature walks and gathering with family and friends are part of the Easter Sunday.
Families with young children hide and hunt for colored eggs. Scriptures are read, blessings counted. Simply put, Easter is a tradition in many homes. It's the time when millions of people gather at a worship center to express their appreciation and acknowledgment of Christ's resurrection. That's the pinnacle of the Easter celebration that starts with Passover, for some, and Good Friday, for others.
The sweetest memories are created during Easter. It's why, during the holiday, the religious and non-religious, gather for breakfast, lunch or dinner. As with other major holidays, food serves as a bonding source in families. Depending on the part of the world the holiday is recognized in, Easter celebration meals run the gamut from baked fish to vegan bean and grain stew to Persian roast chicken.
