Happy Earth Day!

Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to join our celebration of Mother EarthEarth Day on the Net. Our celebration has everything you need to know about preserving and protecting our planet.

For example, did you know that the goal of the first Earth Day, celebrated in 1970, was to serve as an environmental learn-in? You can honor this original intention by doing a little eco-learning of your own. Read up on the history of Earth Day and then test your environmental know-how with some Earth Day trivia.

When you’re ready to get seriously green, check out our articles on the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. With fifty easy suggestions for greening your day-to-day life, there’s no reason not to practice a little Earth Day magic all year-round. Learn how to grow an earth-friendly garden (a great activity to share with your children) — or bring your greening efforts inside, with our 10 eco-friendly recipes for homemade cleaners.

If you have children at home, you will surely enjoy one of our Earth Day craft projects, all of which encourage you to reuse supplies you already have on hand. Or print out one of our Earth Day coloring pages — on recycled paper, of course! Complete your Earth Day celebrations by whipping up a planet-friendly menu based on our delicious, wholesome vegan recipes.

Earth Day is annually celebrated on April 22nd. We look forward to sharing our love for Mother Earth with you over the next several days. And we invite you to spread the green love with your family and friends by sending a free Earth Day e-card.

Happy Holidays!

Yes, it is possible to make it through eight days of Passover without gaining 10 pounds!

Perhaps you are not very familiar with the story and significance of Passover. We welcome you to join us as we uncover the secrets of the seder plate; the significance behind the parable of the Four Sons; and just what Kosher for Passover means anyway!

Do you have young children at home? Help them get ready for the holiday by practicing the Four Questions or enjoying one of the fun activities in our expanded Passover crafts section.

Please take a few minutes to tune into our newest feature: Real Audio Passover, which includes new lectures on preparing for the holiday and understanding its religious significance. And finally, don’t forget to wish your family and friends a Happy Passover with one of our free e-cards.

Holiday Reminder: Easter will be celebrated this Sunday, April 24, 2011.

Hoppy Easter!

Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to hop on over to our Easter celebration, Easter on the Net.

Our Easter celebration has everything you could possibly want to know about this pinnacle holiday in the Christian religion. From an overview of Easter and the holiday’s historical origins to an explanation of the 40-day Lenten Season, including the holidays of Palm Sunday and Good Friday.

Have you ever wondered how Easter is celebrated in the Holy Land? Or what traditions are practiced by the Russian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox communities? Speaking of which, do you know why there are two different dates for Easter — one celebrated by Western churches, the other by Eastern Orthodox churches?

Perhaps you think you know already all there is to know about Easter! Like where the custom of hunting for Easter eggs comes from. And why the bunny rabbit is a symbol of Easter. Or how the Easter lily became associated with this springtime holiday. And just why we eat so much chocolate and marshmallowy candy at Easter time. You can brush up on the answers to these questions and more in our newest trivia feature: Did You Know Easter?

Do you have young children at home? Help them get ready for the Easter holiday by sending an email to the Easter bunny (every child will receive a personalized message in return!) or by enjoying one of our age-appropriate Easter crafts and coloring pages. We also have tips for hosting the perfect Easter egg hunt, cooking up a mouth-watering Easter menu and organizing a round of Easter egg games. We even have step-by-step instructions for making your own Easter egg baskets.

Finally, don’t forget to wish your family and friends a Happy, Hoppy Easter by sending one of our free Easter e-cards.

This year, the moveable feast of Easter will be celebrated on Sunday, April 24, 2011. The Eastern Orthodox churches will also enjoy their Easter celebrations on Sunday, April 24. We look forward to sharing our celebrations with you and your family.

Happy Easter!
