Easter Sunday holds an essential position for people belonging to the Christian faith. The Sunday that comes after the spotting of the first full moon after the vernal equinox is Easter Sunday. The day also marks the arrival of spring season.

This year, Easter Sunday falls on March 31.

History of Easter

The origins of Easter lie in ancient Jewish traditions. There is a Jewish holiday called ‘Passover’ that celebrates the freedom of Israelites from Egyptian slavery.

“Easter” is believed to be derived from the word “Eostre,” resembling the name of the goddess of spring and fertility. During the initial days of Christianity, people celebrated the day by observing fast prayer and dedicating time to Church activities.

However, as times changed, traditions shifted, and many new and amusing traditions took over. In many countries, people, especially the young ones, participate in Easter egg hunts. The eggs are colorfully decorated for the children and tucked away for them to find.

The Easter bunny, a famous and identifiable symbol for Easter Sunday, involves exchanging Easter eggs. The symbol is said to have originated in Germany.
