Believe it or not there is more to the Easter Story than chocolate eggs!
The Easter festival, the oldest and most important festival in the Christian calendar, culminates in the celebration that is Easter Sunday, which today is a time when most of us get together with our families, share a meal and, of course, eat lots of chocolate!
Most people know that it was on this day that Jesus was said to come to life after being crucified, visiting his friends and followers once more.
And as eggs are associated with new life early Christians used them as
a visual symbol of the resurrection of Jesus.
It does of course mean another school holiday! So how are you going to keep your little, and not so little ones amused? We have put together events and activities in Solihull over the Easter period, if you don't see your event in our list, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can add it on.
