Easter facts

If you’re exploring my coloring pages for the first time, I want you to know that I offer the chance to learn about the subject matter.

This way, you can effortlessly transform your coloring experience into an educational lesson…let’s dive in!

Here are lots of fun and interesting, simplified, facts about Easter:

  • Easter’s Date Varies: Unlike Christmas, which has a fixed date, Easter’s date changes every year. It is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the March equinox.
  • Easter Bunny Origins: The Easter Bunny, a popular symbol of the holiday, originated in Germany. It was believed that the “Easter Hare” would judge children’s behavior and deliver colored eggs to the ones who were good.
  • Easter Eggs: Eggs have been associated with Easter as symbols of new life and resurrection. Decorating eggs for Easter has been a tradition for centuries, dating back to at least the 13th century.
  • The White House Easter Egg Roll: This event, held on the White House lawn, has been a tradition since 1878. It involves children rolling decorated, hard-boiled eggs across the lawn.
  • Easter Around the World: In Florence, Italy, there’s a tradition called “Scoppio del Carro” (Explosion of the Cart), where a cart filled with fireworks is ignited to ensure a good harvest. In Norway, there’s a tradition of reading crime novels during Easter.
  • Largest Easter Egg Ever Made: In 2011, a chocolate Easter egg weighing 7,200 kg (15,873 lbs 4.48 oz) was made in Cortenuova, Italy. It was the largest chocolate Easter egg ever made.
  • Easter Lily: The white lily is a symbol of Easter, representing purity and the resurrection of Jesus. The tradition of using lilies at Easter comes from the Gospel of Luke, where lilies are said to grow in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ’s crucifixion.
  • Pretzels: In some European countries, pretzels are associated with Easter because the twists of the pretzel are thought to resemble arms crossed in prayer.
  • Easter Parades: The tradition of Easter parades dates back to the mid-1800s. People dress in new or their best clothes and parade in public after Easter services, symbolizing the new life of the resurrection.
  • Pysanka: A Ukrainian Easter egg, or Pysanka, is decorated using a wax-resist method. The intricate patterns and colors used in creating Pysanka often have symbolic meanings, including health, fertility, and protection against evil.
  • Hot Cross Buns: Traditionally eaten on Good Friday, hot cross buns are marked with a cross on the top, symbolizing the crucifixion of Jesus. It’s believed they date back to the 12th century.
  • Easter and Chocolate: Easter is the second biggest candy-consuming holiday after Halloween. Chocolate eggs and bunnies are among the most popular treats.
  • Flying Bells in France: In France, there’s a tradition that church bells fly to Rome after Good Friday services, returning on Easter Sunday with chocolate and gifts for children.

Coloring tips

Coloring Easter-themed pages can be a delightful activity, blending creativity with the festive spirit of the holiday.

Here are some tips and tricks to make your coloring experience even more enjoyable and vibrant:

  • Choose the Right Materials: Use quality coloring pencils, markers, or watercolors, depending on the paper type. For intricate designs, fine-tip markers or colored pencils are best.
  • Experiment with Colors: Easter is known for its bright and pastel colors. Don’t shy away from experimenting with a variety of shades to make your pages pop. Consider unconventional color combinations for a unique twist.
  • Add Texture and Depth: Use shading and blending techniques to add depth to your coloring. For instance, slightly darker shades at the edges can give a 3D effect to Easter eggs or bunnies.
  • Incorporate Patterns: Fill Easter eggs or other elements with patterns like stripes, polka dots, or flowers for an extra layer of detail.
  • Use a Light Touch: Start with a light hand so you can gradually build up color intensity and correct any mistakes easily.
  • Highlight and Shadow: Add highlights with lighter colors or a white pencil to create a shiny look, especially on Easter eggs. Use shadows to give more depth to figures like the Easter bunny.
  • Background Matters: Don’t neglect the background. A fully colored background can make your main subjects stand out. Consider a light wash of watercolor for a quick and effective background.
  • Personalize Your Pages: Add personal touches, like writing names on Easter eggs or designing your own Easter basket patterns.
  • Enjoy the Process: Remember, the goal is to have fun and relax. Don’t worry about making it perfect. Enjoy the process of bringing a festive scene to life.
  • Protect Your Work: If you’re using markers or paints, place a piece of scrap paper under your coloring page to prevent bleed-through.
  • Stay Inspired: Look at traditional Easter symbols and motifs for inspiration, but also think outside the box. Easter coloring doesn’t have to be limited to eggs and bunnies; spring scenes, flowers, and even whimsical creatures can add variety.

By following these tips, you’ll not only create beautiful Easter artwork but also enjoy a meaningful and relaxing activity that celebrates the season.
