We would like to wish each and everyone of you a very hoppy Easter. Enjoy the first rays of spring sun and some good food now that lent has come to an end!
The date of Easter, when the resurrection of Jesus is said to have taken place, changes from year to year. The reason for this variation is that Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. Talking of Spring - some say the name Easter is derived from "Eostrae" or "Ostara" - the Germanic spring goddess. Not only is she the personification of the rising sun, but some say she actually had a pet rabbit. Essentially, the tale is that Ostara transformed a bird into a hare, and the hare responded by laying colored eggs for her festival. He was, however, only allowed to lay eggs on one day out of each year - known to us as Easter.
Now maybe you can tell one less white lie on Easter. Or did we just make some of it up?
because we just love data. and getting our facts straight.
