Why we celebrate Easter
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated at Easter. The liturgy extends from the last supper of Jesus with his disciples, that is, Maundy Thursday, to Easter Sunday, the resurrection to heaven.
An overview of the Easter holidays: Good Thursday, the day of mourning, follows Maundy Thursday. That Friday Jesus was said to have been crucified. Good Friday is one of the strictest days of fasting and absence among Catholics. People shouldn’t eat meat or other delicate delights on this high holiday.
Good Friday is followed by Holy Saturday, the last day of Holy Week. On this day, believers commemorate the grave rest of Jesus. This is followed by Easter Sunday, the holiest of all church holidays in general. On that Sunday, Jesus Christ is said to have overcome death and to have risen. Easter Monday is followed by Easter Monday. Like the second Christmas Day or Whit Monday, this is one of the days in Germany that is one of the highest festivals of Christianity in Germany as a second holiday, so to speak as a following day.
Germans are church muffle
According to a survey by the magazine "Stern", only 28 percent of Germans go to church at Easter. Nevertheless, the believing site is one of the places where wonderful Easter songs are sung to attune to the holy festival.

Rolf Zuckowski is a master of children’s songs. His Easter song for children is called "Stups the little Easter bunny". A text excerpt from the song reads:
"Stups, the little Easter bunny
keeps falling on the nose,
no matter where he went,
something always went wrong.
The other day, he laid the eggs
in Miss Meier’s shoe.
She got up early in the morning,
then fate took its course:
She got into the shoe,
shouted again briefly: "Oh, no!"
When she saw the scrambled eggs,
she already knew who that was. "
This Easter song for children is a real catchy tune for the small. The song is characterized above all by the simple text and the child-friendly melody.
