Easter 2021

When is Easter?

It’s on Sunday, April 4 this year.

The actual date of Easter changes each year, because it occurs a week after the first full moon following the spring equinox. Spring equinox is on March 20, 2021, and the first full moon is on Sunday, March 28. Seven days later is April 4th.

  • Even though Easter moves around on the calendar, it always falls between March 22 and April 25.

What does the Easter Bunny usually bring?

The Easter Bunny traditionally leaves colored eggs and candy in baskets for kids on Easter. If you want to get crafty, you could buy some green confetti to simulate grass, hiding the gifts beneath the confetti so it’s like a mini Easter egg hunt when the kids rifle through their baskets.

Small gifts and toys can also be a fun way to surprise and delight your kids on Easter. Here are some of the things we like putting in Easter egg baskets:

  • Chocolate
  • Jewelry, like bracelets
  • Small crafting kits, like a mini Lego box
  • Puzzle
  • Coins
  • Press-on tattoos
  • Coloring books
  • Markers or colored pencils
  • Notebooks
  • Stickers
  • Play Doh
  • Stuffed animals
  • Transformers
  • Dolls, like Polly Pockets
  • Action figures
  • Wind-up toys

To make the Easter Bunny’s life just a little easier, you can order chocolate and other Easter gifts online.

Frequently asked questions

Where did the Easter Bunny come from?
The pagan festival of Eostre, which occurred at the start of spring, was linked with the hare and egg. Both are symbols of fertility and rebirth. Over time, parts of Eostre merged with the Christian festival of Easter to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
