The Easter season seems to have been taken over by eggs,
rabbits and in Australia at least, bilbies(!!), but the reality is that is a time we
should be turning our focus to the sacrifice made for us by Christ.
There are so many Bible stories relevant for the Easter season
that I have chosen to list a few here rather than just linking directly the
Relevant Bible Stories
At this time of year, Jewish families also celebrate the Passover. It
is of course, no coincidence, as Jesus' death and resurrection took place during
Passover, though Easter and Passover only occur concurrently every couple of
years. The symbolism of this holiday is, of course, still relevant today
so you may like to check out this story as well.

A great idea for celebrating a
Christian Easter while still using the
symbol of the egg is use plastic eggs
(such as the small novelty ones that
come inside Kinder Surprise and Yowie or
even the larger ones such as Pavlova
Magic - all Aus/NZ products!) and
placing symbols of the Crucifixion and
Resurrection story. Check out
these sites for ideas.
