Always one of the most fun festivals in the annual calendar, Easter is popular among young and old.
A marvellous occasion for family get-togethers and to share an enjoyable time.
An occasion when Springtime is fully acting upon nature foretelling that summer is on its way.
So everyone can join in the innocent pleasure of an Easter celebration.

Without the stress and worry, without the bitter weather and retail crush of Christmas.
That's Easter as it affords an opportunity to relax and enjoy it for its own sake.
Of course people will buy gifts, cook meals and play those party pursuits but it doesn't come burdened with the baggage of its more illustrious winter festival.
If the weather is pleasant and none of those April showers descend then Easter can be a wonderful time for outdoor pursuits.
A splash of sun, healthy fresh air and lots of exercise can make for a great Easter Sunday.
Hard-boiled or soft centres
Boiled eggs will roll and chocolate eggs will be hatched to reveal the inner delights of chocolates, sweets and toffees, hard and soft centres and flavours a-plenty.
Treasure hunts and party games, exuberant forays to the local park if it has a decent-sized elevation to its grassy hillsides.
Hard-boiled eggs with funny faces painted on them depicting favourite comic book or cartoon characters or maybe even the kids' local school-teacher.
Wonderful works of art ready to be dismantled as the shell is picked away or smashed to smithereens. The fun is never ending.
Or maybe a trip to the town centre to watch an Easter Parade full of colour and life representing the rebirth of nature in Springtime. It's a time to celebrate.
Harvey, Thumper and the Flaming Lips
How about an Easter Bunny costume for both kids or adults? For this daring enough to pass themselves off as the tardy rabbit from Alice in Wonderland or Jimmy Stewart's invisible companion Harvey the Pooka.
Or maybe you just want to play Thumper from 'Bambi' and annoy the neighbours with the racket.
On the other hand you climb on stage at a Flaming Lips concert. Whatever takes your fancy, you'll be guaranteed a hug and a smile.
Where will you get that hat, where will you get that hat?
And what would Easter be without the perennial Easter bonnet? Hopefully to keep that warm Springtime sunshine at bay but also to set off that pretty floral dress.
If you don't mind some constructive vandalism you could even knock two holes in it and wear it with your bunny costume.
It wouldn't look too silly I guess but remember to colour co-ordinate with the fur.
Run Forrest run in the great egg race
Easter! It's a time for feasting on hot-cross buns, light fruitcakes and huge chocolate eggs. On the other hand for the diet conscious perhaps just the occasional chocolate creme egg.
Just pray you don't bite into a dry one as they never taste as nice. No, it has to be smooth and creamy for the maximum enjoyment.
As Forrest Gump might have said "Life is like a creme egg, you just never know what you're going to get"
