8 out of 10 children are clueless about the true meaning of Easter

From the Easter Bunny’s birthday to the date chocolate was invented, UK parents reveal their little ones' funny Easter stories


A recent survey says 79% of British parents have reported that their children are clueless about the true meaning behind Easter.


According to the survey of 2,000 parents by Travelodge, more than a quarter of children think Easter is the date that chocolate was invented.

While Easter is the most important festival in the Christian calendar, it seems children are more than a little confused on what this long weekend actually marks.

Some of the funnier responses from young Britons included the belief that Easter marks the date chocolate was invented, while a quarter believed it is to celebrate the Easter Bunny’s birthday.
