The Easter Sunday falls on April 20th this year, but the Dunigan Family YMCA will start the Easter celebration a week early with their first "Egg-Stravaganza" complete with activities for the kids, and of course, a huge Easter egg hunt!
According to many cultures like the Ancient Babylonian, Egyptians, and others, the eggs symbolizes the rebirth of nature in the spring, and the bunny represents fertility or having lots of babies! Seriously...
If you haven't seen this before, now is the time to watch it. It's a piece of video art by Lernert Engleberts and Sander Plug as part of a preschool art project called "Big Art for Little People."
As soon as Valentine's Day is over, department stores immediately switch gears and start displaying their Easter goodies. Jelly beans, marshmallow chicks covered in colored sugar, egg-dying kits, and of course chocolate bunnies have become the symbols that represent the Easter holiday.
