Welcome to our #BecauseOfHim celebrating Easter page. This year, Easter is April 17th, and during March and April, much of the Christian world turns to Christ as they prepare for and celebrate Easter. To join this conversation, enhance understanding of the Savior's sacrifice and Resurrection, and help God's children feel His love, primary Church messages at this time will focus on the Savior and all that is possible Because of Him.
What is Easter?
Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let's read the easter story and see why it i s a special holiday.
The Story of Easter →
He washed their feet. Then He gave them the sacrament. He told them to remember Him and love one another.
He played for all of us. He felt the pain of our sickness. He felt the pain of our sins.
They hurt Him. He died on the cross for us. His Friends put His body in a tomb.
His friends came back. The tomb was empty! Angels told them, “He is risen.” Jesus was alive again! Because of Jesus, we will all live again after we die.
I can make Easter special by remembering Him.
Jesus Christ is the greatest being to be born on this earth - our perfect example. He is Lord of lords, the Creator, and our Savior, and He came to Earth so that we could live with God again.

4.Easter Egg Hunting
Have you ever heard about Easter Egg Hunt? Easter is a religious holiday, but some of its customs, such as Easter eggs, are likely linked to pagan traditions.
Let's pray Easter Egg Hunting!

-Snacks that can be put in the case
1. Put the snacks into the egg case
2. Hide the eggs in your house

The egg, an ancient symbol of new life, has been associated with pagan festivals celebrating spring. From a Christian perspective, Easter eggs are said to represent Jesus’ emergence from the tomb and resurrection. Decorating eggs for Easter is a tradition that dates back to at least the 13th century, according to some sources. One explanation for this custom is that eggs were formerly a forbidden food during the Lenten season, so people would paint and decorate them to mark the end of the period of penance and fasting, then eat them on Easter as a celebration.
