Netizens are marking the approach of Easter, the most important holiday in the Christian liturgical calendar, by using the Web for everything from engaging in a spirited discussion of its religious meaning to trading Easter egg decorating tips.

At the same time as the Jewish celebration of Passover is marked on the Web with an interactive ceremony set for tonight that could draw more than a million participants worldwide, Christian Web users are posting Easter-related poetry and other devotions.




Passover comes to the Web with CyberSeder.




The Easter in Cyberspace page, hosted by a New Jersey Web firm, includes extensive history and background on the holiday, prayers for Lent -- the season of repentance that precedes Easter -- and a tool for sending electronic Easter cards. It also includes graphics and images that users can download and display on their own Web sites.

The more secular-minded will enjoy the live Webcast of the annual White House Easter Egg Hunt, set for Monday at 8 a.m. ET, and available through Internet service provider EarthLink's (ELNK) Web site.

More Easter egg fun can be found at the Rosie's Easter Basket site, which offers recipes and interactive games for kids; and "How to Make Ukrainian Easter Eggs" tells you all you need to know to make your eggs into works of art.
