Easter may not be the flashiest holiday of the year, but I bet you didn’t know it’s the most popular day of the year to go to church! So what else didn’t we know about Easter? Mercer Morrison has more
Easter is much more than an occasion to break out your Sunday best or hop into a bunny costume. It is a day of great religious significance for the roughly 70% of Americans who classify themselves as Christians, marking the resurrection of Jesus. And it actually takes place twice most years because of differences in the Western and Orthodox calendars.
Easter also is a big donation day for U.S. churches, thanks to the year’s highest attendance rates. It’s a significant revenue-driver for companies in the candy business. And it’s a source of divisiveness for those who feel strongly about the best way to eat a chocolate bunny or the proper filling for a chocolate egg.
