Easter is a religious festivity and everyone celebrates differently. In the USA and around the world, Easter tradition is the Christian celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ after Good Friday. Traditionally, children gather to hunt eggs. It is believed that the Easter Bunny is a rabbit-spirit and symbolizes fertility. USA Today stated, “Decorating eggs for Easter dates back to at least the 13th century, according to the History channel. Dying eggs red symbolized the blood of Christ.”
