Day 321: Happy Easter!

Today is Easter Sunday! A day of eating chocolate, spending time with your families and, if you're a Christian, remembering Jesus' sacrifice and return to life.

I just listened to a little talk on the BBC website by the Archbishop of Canterbury all about Jesus' death. He claimed Jesus' life, death and resurrection was like an elaborate piece of art, ''He makes something new out of the raw materials of humanity.''

That's why we all eat chocolate eggs today. They symbolise new life. Christians believe Jesus died, but also rose again.

Just think about all the creativity that has been inspired by Jesus, whether it be his life, death or resurrection. Art, songs, music, drama, sculpture, animation.

How could you be inspired this Easter Sunday?
