The History of Easter
Easter is a religious holiday celebrated by Christians to remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It takes place between March 22nd and April 25th in Western Christianity and is one of the cornerstones of the religion. The first celebration of Jesus’ resurrection by many traditional churches is the Easter or Paschal Vigil and is usually held at midnight between Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. Devotees will also have an Easter feast. Easter's secular and commercial side includes decorating and painting eggs, going on an Easter egg hunt and eating chocolate and candy. However, not all Christian traditions recognize Easter. In this WatchMojo.com video, we learn more about Easter.
