Catholics and Christians believe that Easter is the day that Jesus rose from the dead and they celebrate by going to church. For the most of us, we celebrate by doing Easter egg hunts or having a special dinner with family. For Catholics and Christians, the Easter egg is symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Painting Easter eggs is an especially beloved tradition in the Orthodox and Eastern Christian churches where the eggs are dyed red to represent the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross.

Did you know?

- Americans spend 1.9 billion dollars on Easter eggs.

- 70% of Easter candy purchased is chocolate

Cuphead OST - 48 - The King's Court

Composer: Kristofer Maddigan  

King’s Court is part of the soundtrack of the game Cuphead. Cuphead is a game that came out in September 29, 2017. The game was developed by Studio MDHR. MDHR is for moldenhauer. The Cuphead soundtrack consist of nearly 3 hours of original jazz, early big band, and ragtime music. This game’s animation will make you feel nostalgic because of its 1930’s style of animation. This style is an early kind of Rubber Hose which was used for multiple cartoons, such as:

-Mickey Mouse
-Looney Toons
-Donald Duck
-Tom and Jerry (Van Beuren)
-Betty Boop

This soundtrack even was a nominee for the Juno Award for Instrumental Album of the Year in 2018. I hope you will have a listen to this soundtrack and I hope you love it!
