Easter is celebrated as the day of rebirth of Jesus Christ, which happened 3 days after his burial. The Easter Sunday is marked as the day when Jesus had risen from dead, leaving his tomb. This moveable festival falls on the first Sunday after the paschal full moon.
Greetings, Easter eggs, and Church clippings represent this holy occasion. Easter eggs show the hatchling of God’s only son from his tomb.
When Mary Magdalene visited the tomb after Jesus’s death, she found it empty and an angel informed her that Jesus had risen. Christians are celebrating this event since centuries, tracing back to the pagans. The word Easter is originated from Ostara who is the goddess of rebirth.
In 325 CE, Council of Nicaea decided the day of celebration to reduce the probabilities of its falling on the day of Jewish Passover. Julian calendar is used to decide the date of Easter. It is the celebration of faith in god and his untamed powers which resurrected Jesus from dead.
