Easter is a Christian festival and is celebrated with great gusto across the globe. It is usually celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon, and is followed by a 40-day period of fasting called Lent. The festival is also called the ‘Resurrection Sunday' because Jesus rose from the dead on the third day from Good Friday after his crucifixion, considered as a rebirth of Christianity.

History: According to the New Testament of the Bible, Easter is when Jesus was arrested by the Roman authorities because he claimed to be the ''Son of God''. He was then sentenced to death by the Roman emperor by crucifixion. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day from Good Friday after his crucifixion, which marks the occasion of Easter.
