What is Easter?

Easter is a religious, Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death, according to the World History Encyclopedia. Jesus of Nazareth died from crucifixion under the orders of Roman magistrate Pontius Pilate on Good Friday.

As recorded in all four Gospel accounts, when some of the women who’d followed Jesus to Calvary arrived at the tomb on Sunday morning, now recognized as Easter Sunday, to prepare the body for proper burial, the rock had been rolled away and the tomb was empty, according to Harvard University.

However, the holiday as we know it today is about much more than the religious meaning. It’s also about the Easter bunny, Easter egg hunts, parades and more.
