Best Places To Celebrate Easter in 2017

    Survey of top 100 cities to celebrate Easter

    When you see the chocolate bunnies in the drug store ails as well as the reemergence of marshmallow peeps, you know it’s Easter time,  Aside for Valentine’s Day, Easter brings in billions in dollars spent around the holiday.  It’s estimated that Easter tradition is familiar to the roughly 80 percent of Americans who celebrate the occasion in some way.

    For Christians, however, Easter is less of a commercial event than a holy experience. It not only marks the end of Lent — a 40-day period of fasting, reflection, prayer and repentance followed directly by Easter Sunday — but it also celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ and represents the “new covenant” between God and humanity. In observance of the holiday, many families will gather to attend a “sunrise service”, delight in an Easter feast and continue to share the messages of Christ.
