What is Easter?

Easter is a Christian festival and cultural holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. It is also called Pascha or Resurrection Sunday and the New Testament says it occurred on the third day of Jesus’ burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. 

The Easter lily, a symbol of the resurrection in Western Christianity, traditionally decorates church shrines on this day and for the rest of Eastertide. Modern customs now associated with Easter include Easter parades, communal dancing (Eastern Europe), the Easter Bunny, and egg hunting. There are also traditional Easter foods that vary by region and culture.
