When Is Easter Sunday

When is Easter Sunday

In the Christian liturgical year, Easter Sunday is regarded as the central religious feast. This is the day when Jesus Christ rose from the dead, three days after his crucifixion. The Resurrection of Jesus is celebrated on Easter Sunday. It is the day of rejoicing two days after the Good Friday.
However, as it is based on the calculations of a determined lunar calendar, the date varies from year to year. The Easter Sunday is generally the first full moon on or after the March equinox.

Celebrations of Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is particularly celebrated by decorating eggs and sharing chocolate eggs among friends and family. There are special services held in the churches on the occasion of Easter Sunday to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus.
