What is Easter?
The celebration of Easter revolves around Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Good Friday has its origins as the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is known as the day on which Jesus was crucified. Over the Easter weekend, christian’s traditionally eat fish on Good Friday and in Australia the old Fish and Chip shops do a roaring trade. Good Friday morning is also the morning that we enjoy warm Hot Cross Buns. On Easter Sunday the Easter eggs come rolling out as the Easter Bunny has left some presents for all those little kiddies.
