Easter is a Christian holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. According to the Christian Bible, Jesus was crucified on a Friday, which is now known as Good Friday, and rose from the dead on the following Sunday, which is now known as Easter Sunday.
Easter is considered the most important holiday in the Christian calendar and is celebrated by Christians around the world. The date of Easter is determined by the lunar calendar and can fall anywhere between March 22nd and April 25th.
On Easter Sunday, many Christians attend special church services, which may include hymns, prayers, and the reading of the resurrection story from the Bible. Some churches also hold sunrise services, which commemorate the event of the resurrection.
Easter is also associated with several traditional customs such as Easter eggs, Easter bunny, and Easter baskets. These customs are thought to have originated from pre-Christian celebrations of spring and new beginnings.
Easter is a public holiday in many countries with a Christian tradition, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
