English Breakfast Tea
A Christian holiday celebrating of the Resurrection of Christ. Easter occurs annually on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox. The Easter Season begins on Easter Sunday and continues until Pentecost in the Christian liturgical calendar, thus spanning a total of seven weeks.
The egg - a generally recognized symbol rebirth (resurrection) and new life - has also come to be a primary symbol of Easter. Easter eggs are delivered by a giant mythical rabbit probably because rabbits have symbolized fertility, and new life in Egypt since ancient times.
The name Easter most likely comes from "Oestar", a goddess of Spring and renewal.
