Happy Easter 


Easter (Greek: ?????, Pascha) is the most important annual religious
feast in the Christian liturgical year. According to Christian
scripture, Jesus was resurrected from the dead on the third day after
his crucifixion. Christians celebrate this resurrection on Easter Day or
Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday), two days
after Good Friday and three days after Maundy Thursday. The chronology
of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to be between
A.D. 26 and 36. Easter also refers to the season of the church year
called Eastertide or the Easter Season. Traditionally the Easter Season
lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day but now
officially lasts for the fifty days until Pentecost. The first week of
the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter.
Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of fasting, prayer, and


Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the
civil calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established that the
date of Easter would be the first Sunday after the full moon (the
Paschal Full Moon) following the vernal equinox. Ecclesiastically, the
equinox is reckoned to be on 21 March. The date of Easter therefore
varies between 22 March and 25 April. Eastern Christianity bases its
calculations on the Julian Calendar whose 21 March corresponds, during
the twenty-first century, to 3 April in the Gregorian Calendar, in which
calendar their celebration of Easter therefore varies between 4 April
and 8 May.

Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover not only for much of its
symbolism but also for its position in the calendar.

Cultural elements, such as the Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts, have
become part of the holiday's modern celebrations, and those aspects are
often celebrated by many Christians and non-Christians alike. There are
also some Christian denominations who do not celebrate Easter.


Easter, annual festival commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
and the principal feast of the Christian year. It is celebrated on a
Sunday on varying dates between March 22 and April 25 and is therefore
called a movable feast. The dates of several other ecclesiastical
festivals, extending over a period between Septuagesima Sunday (the
ninth Sunday before Easter) and the first Sunday of Advent, are fixed in
relation to the date of Easter.

Connected with the observance of Easter are the 40-day penitential
season of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday and concluding at midnight on
Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday; Holy Week, commencing on
Palm Sunday, including Good Friday, the day of the crucifixion, and
terminating with Holy Saturday; and the Octave of Easter, extending from
Easter Sunday through the following Sunday. During the Octave of Easter
in early Christian times, the newly baptized wore white garments, white
being the liturgical color of Easter and signifying light, purity, and
