Easter is a festival that is celebrated majorly by Christians all over the world. This festival is always celebrated on Sundays between March 22 and April 25 every year. The festival is also known as Easter Sunday; or resurrection Sunday.

Easter was derived from the word “Eastra” which means goddess of springs. It is a Christian holiday, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ which occurred on the third day after he was crucified on the cross.

40 days prior to Easter, Christians follow lent, which is supposed to be 40 days of prayer, penance and fasting. The week before Easter is known as the holy week.

Jewish Christians were the first who celebrated Easter around the middle of the second century in Jerusalem. Churches are specially decorated on Easter day. On this day, prayers are done for the welfare of the whole world in the church. Along with this, candles are lit in the church and at the same time candles are lit in homes.

 

Chocolate-filled eggs or brightly painted eggs with sweets inside (Easter eggs) are common gifts exchanged on Easter. Churches and homes are decorated with white lilies also known as Easter lilies.
