Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after being crucified, as related in the New Testament of the Bible. It is the most important celebration of the Christian Church.
Easter is also known as Easter Day, Easter Sunday, Easter Sunday, Glory Sunday or Holy Sunday.
With Easter, Easter ends, days in which the crucifixion and death of Jesus are commemorated on Good Friday and his resurrection and appearance before his disciples on Easter Sunday are celebrated.
With Easter begins a period known as Easter Season, which lasts fifty days, and ends on Pentecost Sunday.
According to the Holy Scriptures, with Easter God gives Christians hope for the resurrection and for a new way of life, represented in the return of Christ from the dead.
Easter is a mobile holiday, the day of which varies each year. This is because the date is not set according to the civil calendar, but by the liturgical year, which is governed by the lunar cycles.
Thus, Easter is always located after the first full moon after the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn in the south.
In this sense, Easter can be celebrated between March 22 and April 25. And the day it falls is important to also calculate the dates of other religious holidays, such as Pentecost and Ascension.
