Easter was the feast (party) of Eostre, the Saxon (old English) goddess of spring. Now it celebrates a Christian feast, to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. For some peo-ple it’s also a good excuse to eat lots and lots of chocolate!
Research has found that children will eat up to 2.6kg of chocolate over Easter. That's about 13,000 calories and 1.4kg of sugar.
So even if Easter isn't your thing (you ityou don't like it), tuck intotuck into (eat) an Easter egg or two this Easter!
