What does Easter mean to you?
To some, it is about the new life that springs forth after the bleak coldness of winter.
For others it is a weekend to spend enjoying the company of their families and friends. To enjoy good food and good conversation.
To the little ones, it's all about the chocolate eggs - another symbol of new life. There will be Easter Egg hunts and all sorts of fun and games today, providing that the weather isn't too bad.
But the real meaning of Easter has been lost to so many people. They have forgotten that Easter Sunday is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus after his crucifixion.
The day has been commercialised, like many other special days and festivals, reduced to little more than a money making exercise for shops.
So whilst you are eating your family lunch and tucking into your eggs, spare a minute to contemplate what today is really about.
But above all, enjoy your day, whatever you have planned.
