Easter is the most important festival of Christianity and is celebrated with fervour and full enthusiasm by the Christian community around the world.
It marks the resurrection of the central figure of Christianity, Jesus Christ, after his death on Good Friday, on which he was crucified at Roman Calvary and then died later.
It always falls on Sunday, two days after Good Friday, which is observed as the day when Jesus was hung on the cross for the sake of humanity and to pay the price of people’s sins.
According to the Luni-Solar calendar, this year, the Easter Sunday will fall on April 17, as the Good Friday will be celebrated on April 15.
As per Christianity, Easter is observed as the happy day wherein the world was saved, hence it is considered the day of new hope, a new beginning, and positivity.
It is celebrated with joy and happiness around the world, many festivities are done during the festival such as Churches are decorated, religious processions are held, people visit churches, and offer prayers to the supreme god. Many churches also host special services on the day.
Apart from Christians, some non- Christians also celebrate the day for fun by becoming the part of non-traditional festivities of Easter such as Egg Parade, Egg hunting etc.
