WHAT IS EASTER?
The feast of Easter is the celebration of Jesus
Christ's return to life after he was crucified on
the cross at Calvary. It is usually celebrated on
the first Sunday after the full moon following
the first day of Spring. This can be any Sun-
day between March 22 and April 25. Easter
also marks the end of the Lenten season,
forty days of abstinence, praying and repen-
tance, which begin on Ash Wednesday. For
many Christians, it is the most sacred of all
the Christian celebrations.
Christ's return from death is called the "Res-
urrection." According to the Bible, the Holy
Book of Christians, Jesus' tomb was empty
three days after his death. His disciples and
followers saw him and talked to him after this.
Christians therefore believe that they too can
receive new life after death. Easter is also the
celebration of this belief.
