How is Easter Celebrated in the UK?

Easter an important time of year for Christians worldwide and in the UK it is celebrated by going to church, gifting chocolate eggs, decorating with Easter bunnies and scoffing hot cross buns!

Unlike Christmas, which falls on the same day every year, the Easter holiday dates change annually. The date of Easter is calculated from the first Sunday after the first full moon, following the spring equinox in March.

Easter Sunday observes Jesus Christ’s resurrection, as written in the Christian bible. Eggs are thought to be given on this day because they represent new life and are symbolic of Jesus coming back from the dead. Even for those who are not religious, chocolate Easter eggs are usually given to friends and family. They are also used in a fun and traditional game called an Easter egg hunt, where lots of eggs are hidden around a house, garden or park, to be found by children and families.

Throughout the Easter holidays a number of important dates are celebrated by Christian’s. These include Good Friday and Easter Monday, which are also Bank holidays in the UK. This means that most banks, businesses and schools are closed.

If you are planning to visit the UK over the Easter holidays, be sure to join in with the celebrations and enjoy a chocolate egg or three!
