Easter Letterbox Gifts

Send Easter cake in the post

Easter is one of the most important and widely celebrated holidays in the Christian calendar. It is a time when Christians around the world commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, which is believed to have taken place on the third day after his crucifixion.

The origins of the Christian celebration of Easter can be traced back to the first century AD, when the followers of Jesus began to celebrate his resurrection. The New Testament tells the story of how Jesus was arrested, tried, and sentenced to death by crucifixion. He was then buried in a tomb, but on the third day after his death, his disciples discovered that the tomb was empty and that he had risen from the dead.

The exact origins of the name "Easter" are uncertain, but it is believed to have been derived from the Old English word "Eostre," which referred to a pagan goddess of spring and fertility. In many languages, the word for "Easter" is derived from the Hebrew word "Pesach," which means "Passover." This is because the Christian celebration of Easter is closely linked to the Jewish holiday of Passover, which commemorates the Israelites' liberation from slavery in Egypt.

In the Middle Ages, the celebration of Easter became even more elaborate, with the development of a range of customs and traditions that are still observed today. One of the most important of these traditions is the Easter egg, which symbolizes the rebirth of life and the resurrection of Jesus. Eggs were decorated with bright colours and given as gifts to friends and family members.

Another important Easter tradition is the Easter bunny, which is believed to have originated in Germany in the 17th century. According to legend, the Easter bunny would bring baskets of eggs to children on Easter morning. This tradition was brought to the United States by German immigrants in the 18th century, and it has since become a popular part of Easter celebrations around the world.

There are a few traditions that we have today, which still connect to some of these traditions, for instance, some of us still get involved with lent, giving up something that we love and then Easter is the time when we can partake in that again. Most of us enjoy an Easter Egg still at easter, although now, it’s more of a tradition of having a chocolate egg, rather than colouring an Easter egg with dyes. And quite a few of us keep the idea of the Easter bunny alive by hiding small chocolate eggs for our children to find at Easter in the yearly Easter egg hunt.

We like to use Easter as another opportunity to spoil loved ones a little bit, not as much as at Christmas, but we like to give our family (especially the kids), a little something to make them smile. As we have mentioned above, usually that would be an Easter egg, but if you want to send them something a little bit different there are options you could consider.
