Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is a religious holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It falls on a different Sunday every year between March 22 and April 25 as it follows a lunar calendar (usually the first Sunday after the first full moon after March 20th).

Easter Sunday marks the end of Lent Season, a period of 40 days of fasting in preparation for Easter. Traditions associated with Easter have different origins, including Judeo-Christian as well as Pagan. Both religious and commercial Easter celebrations vary throughout the world; from baking and decorating cakes to coloring eggs to giving presents of chocolate eggs and bunnies.

The rabbit and eggs are two most significant symbols of the festival and represent fertility, new life and spring.
