Festivity - Easter
Wishing You a Blessed Easter!

Christianity is the world's biggest religion, with about 2.1 billion followers’ worldwide accounting to 33% of population. Easter is the most important Christian festival. One of the most important concepts in Christianity is that of Jesus giving his life on the Cross (the Crucifixion) and rising after the third day (the Resurrection) of his death by crucifixion in AD 30-33.

Christians commemorate Easter, the resurrection and rebirth of Jesus Christ, as it is Jesus’ victory over death and mankind's hope for eternal life.
Also the resurrection of Jesus is a core event on which much of Christian doctrine and theology depend and it affirm that Jesus gives his ultimate demonstration that he has power over life and death. According to Holy Bible - 1 Cor. 15:14 “If Christ was not raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your trust in God is useless"

“Christ has risen from the dead, and thus His own words have been justified and thus God has given Him the sign of His Messianic mission. The final and absolute seal of genuineness has been put on all His claims, and the indelible stamp of a divine authority upon all His teachings. The resurrection spans and binds the sacred Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. Christ is raised from the dead, and every promise of God is yea and amen in Him.” - Bishop Samuel Fallows

Most Christians observe Easter on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Meanwhile, the eastern Orthodox Churches celebrate the Easter later because of additional factors in calculating the date of Easter.

As the Easter Day is the Sunday after the full moon that occurs next after the vernal equinox, the date of Easter changes year to year and it falls in between March 22 and April 25in the case of Western religions or April and May for ORTHODOX religions (according to the date of the Passover festival.)

Easter celebrated in March 22nd in the years 1598,1693,1763,1818 and Easter will be celebrated in March 22nd in the year 2285!

Similarly Easter celebrated in April 25 in the years, 1666, 1734, 1886, 1943 and Easter will be celebrated in April 25 in the years2038, 2190, 2258 etc.

In Eastern Christianity “Pascha (Passover) is the fundamental and most important festival. The spiritual preparation for Pascha begins with Great Lent, which starts on Clean Monday and lasts for 40 continuous days. The last week of Great Lent (following the fifth Sunday of Great Lent) is called Palm Week, and ends with Lazarus Saturday. The week which begins on Easter Sunday is called Bright Week, during which there is no fasting”

In many European languages the name Easter derived from the word Passover.
In Greek and Latin……Pascha.
In Italian………………. Pasqua.
In French……………… Paques.
In Spanish…………….. Pascua.

“Easter and Passover always fall close to each other but they are not always at exactly the same time. Passover commemorates the time when God rescued the people of Israel from slavery and Moses led them out of Egypt. Both Easter and Passover revolve around the idea of rebirth. Jesus is resurrected, or born again, and the slaves are reborn into freedom.”

In addition to attending Church Services, Easter is celebrated by festive family meals, exchange of Gift like Easter Eggs, Easter bunny, Easter egg candies and Easter bonnets or baskets which have things like flowers in them or playing Easter games like egg coloring, Egg rolling are the favorite Easter activity of kids, younger boys and girls. Sending of Easter greetings / Gift giving has become popular all over the world now.
