What is Easter and how it is celebrated?

Easter is the single most important holiday throughout Christianity. It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ which is a central belief for Christians worldwide and the focal point of their faith. Religious scholars believe the event occurred three days after the Romans crucified Jesus in roughly 30 AD. Christians therefore derive hope that they too will experience a resurrection in heaven. Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after March 21.

For many, Festival is all about chocolate bunnies, dyed eggs, bouquets of daffodils and lilies but the holiday is one of the most important observances of the year for Christians around the world. The story behind the festival lies in the New Testament of the Bible which narrates how the Roman authorities arrested Jesus because he claimed to be the “Son of God”. Pontius Pilate, the Roman emperor by crucifixion, sentenced him to death. His resurrection three days later marks the occasion of Easter.
