Easter is a Christian festival that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Here are some useful information and facts about Easter:
Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it doesn't have a fixed date. It generally falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox, which places it between March 22 and April 25.
Eggs and rabbits are common symbols of Easter. Eggs represent new life and resurrection, while rabbits are associated with fertility and springtime.
The Easter Bunny is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. The tradition is believed to have originated in Germany.
Easter is preceded by Holy Week, which includes significant events in the Christian calendar such as Maundy Thursday (commemorating the Last Supper), Good Friday (commemorating the crucifixion), and Holy Saturday.
The tradition of coloring and decorating eggs is common during Easter. In many cultures, eggs are also hidden for children to find, often as part of an Easter egg hunt.
The period leading up to Easter is known as Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, repentance, and reflection observed by many Christians.
Easter Sunday is the culmination of the Holy Week and is the primary day of celebration. Christians attend church services, and many families gather for festive meals.
While Easter is primarily a Christian celebration, various cultures around the world have incorporated their own traditions and customs into the holiday.
In some regions, Easter parades are organized, featuring festive attire, music, and displays of Easter-themed decorations.
raditional Easter foods vary across cultures, but lamb is a common dish, symbolizing Jesus as the "Lamb of God." Hot cross buns are also a popular Easter treat in some regions.
