Why is Easter celebrated?

The origins of Easter can be found in the New Testament of the Bible, which describes how Jesus was arrested by Roman authorities for claiming to be the Son of God and later crucified. Easter is celebrated three days after his resurrection.

Easter is a Christian holiday that commemorates Jesus Christ’s resurrection. This year’s holiday falls on April 17 and will be observed all over the world. According to the Bible’s New Testament, Easter occurs three days after Jesus’ crucifixion by the Romans. Easter concludes the “Passion of Christ,” which begins with Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, and ends with Holy Week. Holy Friday (celebration of Jesus’ last supper) and Good Friday (the crucifixion of Jesus Christ) are part of the Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.

The story of Easter is told in the New Testament of the Bible, and it begins with Jesus being arrested by Roman authorities because he claimed to be the “Son of God.” Pontius Pilate, the Roman emperor, then sentenced him to death by crucifixion. Easter is celebrated three days after his resurrection. This day is also closely associated with the PASSOVER JEWISH FESTIVAL.

Easter is a joyful occasion, and the Sunday before is known as Palm Sunday, commemorating Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem. The Easter Vigil is a religious service held by various churches in the late hours of Saturday to start off the Easter season. The Easter egg tradition, which represents fertility and birth, as well as the Easter bunny, which brings chocolates and sweets to children on Easter Sunday, are non-religious celebrations.
