Fun facts about Easter

Easter is a traditional holiday celebrated by Christians around the world. The holiday coincides with the start of Spring and many of the images linked to it are about birth and new beginnings, like baby animals and eggs.

Easter Eggs have been made for the holidays for many years, with the first being made in 1873 in Bristol, England. The largest egg ever made was over 25 feet high and weighed over 1500 pounds. Along with Easter Eggs, each year over 90 million chocolate bunnies are made for the holiday.
