History of the Easter gifts. Why have Easter bunnies and eggs become so associated with the Easter Sunday celebration? Isn't it obvious that Easter has its origins of the Christian tradition of celebrating Christs resurrection?

Well, the secular Easter celebration as we know it came from pre-Christian traditions, when the celebration of fertility and springtime seasons were the norm and the prevailing beliefs of most non Christians. The rabbit, or the Easter hare, was somehow included in the celebrations and became a symbol of fertility, as rabbits are known to be notoriously fast breeders, and are able to produce a lot of offspring in a given period of time. Hence, today, children celebrate and happy easter 2018 image in a variety of forms. Some believe that the Easter bunny lays hidden candies and eggs in their garden, and then start an egg hunt. These activities are common during Easter Sunday.

Eggs are also rolled down the hill during Easter Sunday morning. This is a typical British tradition, probably meant to symbolize the rolling away of the circular stone in the grave where Jesus was entombed. The British colonialists brought this practice to America, and it has been the tradition to roll eggs ever since.

These packages are not only meant to carry Easter goods and gifts. Oftentimes, in order to make the giveaways more practical, food items and usable things were stuffed into baskets, aside from the Easter bunny cards or eggs. These included cookies, candies, lollipops, Easter postcards and greeting cards, Easter-themed notebooks and organizers, pens, coloring and painting materials, and a whole lot of others. The baskets too have Easter-themed wreaths complete with hanging bunny figures or eggs.

Whatever you decide to put inside Easter baskets, children and adults are going to appreciate the kindness that you give away during the holiday.

Easter is coming up in a couple of months, and you may be wondering how you are going to celebrate this year. Maybe you have children who still enjoy celebrating Easter and dressing up in Easter costumes, or maybe you have adult family members who just like to have dinner to be with on the holiday. Either way, if you need some ideas for how to celebrate, just keep reading!

Get Easter portraits! Especially if you have children, Easter portraits are a great way to not only celebrate the holiday, but also to remember the special moments in your life. It is customary in many families for the girls to get a new Easter dress every year, and the boys to dress up in a suit and tie. Why not get a professional family portrait, or at least a portrait of the children, done to give you something to remember the occasion by?

If you are more of the nontraditional type, you might want to consider instead having silly or cute portraits taken. For instance, you can buy infant Easter costumes online; just find a cute one and have the baby's portrait taken in the costume. Portraits of your kids playing with baby chicks or rabbits are also a favorite.

Participate in a community Easter egg hunt. Most communities and churches have Easter egg hunts this time of year. During these events, the kids are given candy and other treats, and hunt for eggs (usually plastic eggs filled with treats and prizes). Check with your local community center, recreation center, or your church to find out whether there are any events like this you could attend.
