Extract: History of Easter
Easter is a holiday of the Resurrection of Christ. A major Christian celebration takes place in memory of sufferings, martyr death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter is observed on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. Easter Sunday, also called Easter Day, is the day on which this festival is celebrated, between Good Friday and Easter Monday.
The Dictionary describes Easter as:-An annual Christian festival in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

A Fabergé egg is one of a limited number of jeweled eggs created by Peter Carl Fabergé and his company from 1885 to 1917. The most famous are ones made for the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers, often called the ‘Imperial’ Fabergé eggs.
The House of Fabergé made about 50 eggs and 43 have survived. Another two were planned for Easter 1918, but because of the Russian Revolution were not delivered.
After the Revolution, the Fabergé family left Russia (see House of Fabergé). The Fabergé trademark has been sold several times since and several companies have retailed egg-related merchandise using the Fabergé name. The trademark is now owned by Fabergé Limited, which makes egg-themed jewellery.
