Fact Monster – Origins of Easter

You can learn all the facts about Easter on this site. Start at its creation and go to how we celebrate it today. All the information is laid out before you, so just scroll down the page, read and click the links interspersed in the text to learn more about a particular subject.

Near the middle of the page, you will find a box with Related Links in it. Here you can find out more about Easter traditions from all over the world and even check out the Easter features.

If you continue scrolling all the way down to the bottom, you will reach the More Easter Features link. Click on that and you will go to a menu of other Easter topics. I really enjoyed the information on Faberge Eggs, which are the most glorious and ostentatious Easter eggs of all.

You also don’t want to miss out on the Sweet Easter Facts section where you can learn all kinds of neat trivia and facts surrounding this holiday, like how many pounds of candy are consumed at Easter.

For me, Easter is a great time when you are around your friends and family and just honestly enjoy each other’s company. This year, I don’t get to go home for Easter, so this site helped me discover some things I could use to make my own Easter traditions. Plus, I get to try out my mom’s Easter ham recipe, which is so tasty. I can’t wait to make it!

I hope you all have a great Easter as well.
