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 Sunday between March
22 and April 25. Easter also marks the end of the
Lenten season, forty days of abstinence, praying
and repentance, which begin on Ash Wednesday.
For many Christians, it is the most sacred of all the
Christ's return from death is called the "Resurrec-
tion." According to the Bible, the Holy Book of Chris-
tians, 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.
