Festive

Easter

By Olivia from The Press Gang

Every year we celebrate something called Easter. We usually have a big party or chocolate egg hunts but this year we can’t have big parties because of COVID-19. Luckily the restrictions are easing. It turns out that Easter was originally a pagan festival celebrating spring in the Northern Hemisphere, long before the advent of christianity.

 Fun Facts!

1-  The naming of the celebration as Easter seems to go back to the name of a pre-Christian goddess in England.

2- More than 1.5 million Cadbury Creme Eggs are produced every day.

3- The act of painting eggs originates from a Ukrainian tradition.
