Easter Sunday, 2008, is on March 23rd.
Christians celebrate Jesus Christ's rising from the dead, three days after being killed. People celebrate new life.
Children in many countries colour eggs for Easter. They use the colours of the spring flowers.
Rabbits are also a symbol of new life. Many children believe in the Easter Bunny, a rabbit who brings them candy at Easter. This legend began in Germany and was taken to North America by immigrants.
