What Does Easter Mean To You?

Easter is a time to remember what Jesus was crucified for our sins. Centuries ago Jesus decided to sacrifice himself to save all people from their sins. John 3:16 says for God loved the world so much he gave his only son to save our sins, so whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. That was one of the scriptures which is a very popular verse known all over the world.

Equippers church had a big Easter give away where families can come together to have a good time with their children. While I was there I was hanging out with my friends from church and we walked around looking at the things which we could participate in but there wasn't anything so we decided to play tiggy.

Over the years people have changed the true meaning of Easter and turned it into about Bunnies. People commercialize to make profit and money from selling Easter eggs. They also have things like Easter shows, Egg hunts and all sorts of other things. Easter eggs are a sign of rebirth which means new beginnings.

Easter for me was really about going to church services and eating a lot of chocolate. I had a Turkish delight chocolate Easter egg it had a big hollow egg and 10 small eggs with Turkish in them they were delicious.
