Part A: Special days

Hi, I'm Jemima.

Easter Sunday is a day of great importance to me and to Christians all around the world.  It celebrates the day that Jesus came back to us, three days after dying on the cross.  Like many other Christians, my family goes to church on Easter Sunday for a special service.

But Easter is also about eggs, which are a sign of new life.  After church we have a hunt for chocolate eggs.  My sisters and I run around the house and the garden finding eggs left by the Easter Bunny.  Then we divide them up and start eating.  I like to save mine so they last for a few weeks but my little sisters just eat their's right away.  Either way, you can never have too many chocolate eggs!

Easter is always on a Sunday in late March or April and because of it, the following Monday is a public holiday.
