“Whatever you do, work at it with
all your heart…”
–Paul the Apostle
Easter is the No. 2 top-selling candy holiday (behind Halloween) according to the National Confectioners Association. Each day, in preparation for the holiday, candy makers produce 5 million marshmallow chicks and bunnies. Each year, they produce 90 million chocolate bunnies and 16 billion jelly beans.
The reason the date of the celebration changes each year dates back to 325 A.D. It was set under the Roman emperor Constantine as the first Sunday after a full moon following the Spring equinox (that’s right… a full moon and an equinox). That makes it between March 22 and April 25 every year.
