Easter is the day when christians remember the resurrection of Jesus.
Most christians celebrate
Easter on the Sunday following the the first full moon after the first day of spring in the northern half of the world.

We have eggs at Easter because because they tell us of the new life that returns to nature about this time.
People have been exchanging eggs at
Easter since the ancient times. The Egyptians and Persians dyed eggs and gave them to their friends.
The Persians also believed that the earth had hatched from a giant egg.

Annika created this page during her IT lessons. She researched the material in the school library and with help from the Rev. Robert Fisher. The theme for the page arose from the Lakes School link with schools in Sweden and Finland, a project which has received support from the Comenius project.
Annika learned to use a word processor and a painting program (to produce the background herself) in the course of creating this page.
