Easter Traditions

When I was a kid we were fairly poor and most of my clothes were hand-me-downs. But every Easter I would have a new dress to wear to church.
Many people know Easter bunnies and eggs come from the ancient Anglo-Saxon religion that celebrated a goddess of Spring named Eastre.
So, what do new clothes, eggs, and rabbits have to do with a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection?
Simple. They all remind us of new life.
