If you are planning on taking a holiday this Easter, or are simply looking forward to a break, then the idea of a few days off will sound tempting.
The long weekend is usually a time to feast on Easter eggs, go on seasonal chocolate egg hunts and enjoy some downtime with your family.
The Easter Bank holidays begin on Good Friday, which falls on April 14.
Easter Sunday is on April 16 and then you will get an extra holiday on Easter Monday, April 17.
In total you will get four days off (if you include the Saturday) - which is enough time to eat your weight in chocolate or take a mini-break.
Christians celebrate Easter Sunday as the day Jesus Christ was resurrected after his cruxification.
The Easter weekend follows Maundy Thursday which marks the last day of Jesus' life - it was also the day of the Last Supper.
The date is determined by the lunar calendar and this is why it changes every year.
