Easter on the Net  

Review by Debbie Mazo


Besides tulips and daffodils, other welcome signs of spring are the colorful eggs of Easter. Originally, Easter eggs were painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of the season. After the designs were completed, eggs were exchanged by lovers or romantic admirers as gifts. To mark the rites of spring, visit Easter on the Net to find out more about the season's best.

Easter on the Net The custom of using eggs has been associated with Easter for centuries. Click Why Easter Eggs, and you'll discover how different cultures have developed their own way of decorating Easter eggs. For example, in parts of Germany and Austria, green eggs are used on Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday). For Slavic people, eggs are decorated using special patterns of gold and silver. Eggs have also played an important part in cultural Easter sports, including those of the Romans who ran races on an oval track and gave eggs as prizes.

To help with your holiday cooking, Easter on the Net serves up seasonal recipes to please all your Easter guests. Spring into the season by preparing an Italian Easter Bread sweetened with mixed candied fruit. To win the heart of your favorite Easter bunny, create an Easter Nest complete with marshmallows, chow mein noodles, and pastel M&M's. There's also several Easter egg recipes to try, ranging from Cherry Nut Easter Eggs to Chocolate Cream Easter Eggs.

Other treats of the site include Easter craft projects and animated Easter movies to download. When you drop by, you can also send your friends and family an Easter greeting card. Full of holiday cheer and plenty of Easter Bunny sightings, this seasonal site proves that you can put all your eggs in one basket.
