The Easter bunny is one of the most loved characters when it comes to celebrating Easter. It is a great time of year for people to dress as a bunny and hide eggs in the garden for children to participate in an egg hunt. The first edible Easter Eggs were made in Germany during the early 19th century and were made of pastry and sugar.
Easter celebrates the rising of Jesus after his crucifixion. As the story goes, Jesus is buried in a cave shut off by an enormous rock. On the morning of Easter Sunday a miracle happens and Jesus is resurrected and carries on performing his work in Gods’ name.
Like most Christian holidays, like Christmas it has become commercial. People are raiding shops to buy chocolate Easter eggs, which represent birth and new life. Chicks are also thought of when Easter comes and often enough you see many shops offering customers the chance to buy their very own fluffy toy chick.

Who ya gonna call?!Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters! The sequel rumours have been circling and there is a shock, Bill Murray’s character Dr. Peter Venkman will be killed off according to his interview with American idol, Letterman. The film is set to be a big hit and will be on our screens next year.
With the third film on its way, we have been reminiscing about the previous classics and no matter how many times you watch it, it is still has us all in stitches of laughter. Ghostbusters is also a great theme for any party and we have the gear that will get you wanting to kick some ghost and demon butt!
Ghostbusters really are one of the biggest and best fancy themes around - year after year our Ghostbusters costumes never fail to perform extremely well as people look to recreate one of the best movies of the last fifty years. It's funny when people call things 'timeless' because most things really aren't but Ghostbusters is something that never grows old.
And in fact, with the new film coming up it looks like it's going to be bigger than ever before, so why not get suited and booted as soon as possible and get your brand new Ghostbusters costume in time for the film? Without your proton pack, you'll be a sitting duck.
