When is Easter 2022?
Easter Sunday 2022 will be on the 17 April. This is not dictated by the Gregorian calendar, but by a lunisolar calendar. Since the 4th century, Easter has occurred on the Sunday following the first full moon after the March equinox, which marks the start of spring. This means that each year the date on our calendars is different.
Easter is a time of joy and celebration, a time for us to remember what’s important to us, and what a better way to express this than with the gift of giving to those who mean the most. With spring comes brighter and slightly warmer weather. So, why not encourage the kids to play outside again by treating them to a hoverboard or new kids’ bike, after all it’s vital to keep their bodies and minds active.
And to keep the kids busy for less, check out our non-stop toys offers, the perfect place to find Easter gifts for kids. No matter what age you’re gifting for, our toys range is sure to have something for everyone to enjoy; from cute soft toys and adorable baby gifts for the much younger bunnies to board games and food gifts for the older crowd. And for those who like to keep up appearances then our beauty gift sets would make the perfect Easter present. If you find that you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Easter present ideas, then our gift cards are always a good option.

Easter is a religious festival and public holiday during April. To Christians, it is the most important festival of the year and a celebration of Jesus and new life. The earliest evidence of the Christian festival of Easter dates to the mid-2nd century. Many other cultures throughout the history of humanity have celebrated the spring equinox, with different cultures making use of similar symbols, thus the origins of Easter are far reaching and eclectic.
For the secular world, Easter is all about the coming of spring and many of our modern traditions have pagan origins. The date of Easter is not fixed to the Gregorian calendar but is instead governed by a lunisolar calendar. Rabbits are the symbol of the Germanic goddess, Ēostre, whose name is often attributed to the etymology of Easter. Even hot cross buns were baked in the pagan world, with each quarter representing a different season. These celebrations of nature go hand in hand with Paganism’s historically rural population and traditions.
