Easter is just around the corner

Easter has its roots in religion. On Good Friday, the Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus. In addition, there are several traditions today that have a deep connection to this religious background:

According to the Christian tradition, the bunny stands for new life and fertility. Therefore, it became a symbol for Jesus’ Resurrection and the beginning of a new life. However, the bunny is not the only symbol standing for that part of history and religion. Eggs also represent life. You know the famous question: What came first, hen or egg? Nevertheless, the egg has some more meanings: It stands for a close grave, keeps something hidden and locked and is therefore the perfect symbol for the tomb of Jesus. Today the egg represents more the joy and the future of life.  

The joy is also represented in colored eggs. For many children coloring eggs is the most popular Easter tradition. The first eggs were painted red to represent the blood of Jesus but today the eggs are as colorful as the rainbow.

Over the years, the traditions merged and so today the Easter bunny hides eggs for the children to find. To enjoy Easter with your whole family, we would like to recommend brunching together. Brunch is a mix of breakfast and lunch with warm and cold food. Check out our delicious salmon wraps, which are greatly recommendable.
