Easter is considered one of the most important Christian holidays of the year. This celebration marks the resurrection of Jesus after he gave up his life for the sins of the people. The date for this holiday varies and is observed in either March or April. Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. In Canada, it is a public holiday and many businesses are closed accordingly. Easter celebrations start on Good Friday and last for four days up until Easter Monday. During the Easter weekend, families meet and eat traditional foods like roasts, cakes and pies. All day, children play together and hunt for chocolate Easter eggs and presents hidden by the clever Easter Bunny. They enjoy activities like arts and crafts, relay races and bingo. Furthermore, some farms are open to the public and visitors can feed and play with the animals. Many other outdoor activities take place all weekend long!
