History of Easter celebration

Easter is a principal festival of the Christian church which celebrates the belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is an entire season of the Christian church year rather than just been one day of celebration; the 40-day period (excluding Sundays) leading up to Easter Sunday is known as Lent. Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebration of Easter.

Many Christians worldwide celebrate Easter with special church services, music, candlelight, flowers and ringing of church bells. Around the world, people give each other chocolate-coated Easter eggs, greeting cards and Easter bunnies. Egg rolling is also popular; people roll painted hard-boiled eggs against other people’s eggs and the winner is the person whose egg remains whole.

Easter holiday is a great holiday to spend time with family and friends and enjoy special moments.
