1. Easter Sunday marks the day of Jesus’ resurrection, three days after he was crucified (known as Good Friday). After his crucifixion his body was taken down from the cross and buried in a tomb inside a cave. Roman soldiers guarded the tomb and a boulder was used to cover the entrance so that no one could steal his body.

    Mary Magdalene, followed later by some of Jesus’ disciples visited the tomb on the Sunday. They found that the stone had been moved and Jesus’ body was gone. That day Jesus was seen by Mary and his disciples and for forty days many people came to see him and his followers soon realised that God had raised Jesus from the dead.

    The exchange of eggs has been a tradition long before Easter was celebrated, as it is an ancient symbol of new life. Easter eggs symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus and early Christians used red coloured eggs to signify the Resurrection.
