Every country has its own way of celebrating Easter. US don’t observe a state holiday on Easter because it falls on Sunday, but there are celebrations on large scale. The New York Easter Parade is quite famous. In India too, Easter is celebrated with the same aim, to commemorate Jesus’ resurrection from death 3 days after. People on this auspicious day visit Church, seek the blessings of the GOD, exchange Easter gifts with Easter food and other goodies, buy decorated hard boiled eggs and prepare yummy delights.
The Easter healthy food can be gifted with dyed eggs or beautifully decorated hard boiled eggs braided in the breads or out in the basket along with other gifts.
