Introduction

On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches.

Christians believe, according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter.

History of Easter

The story of Easter, Good Friday and Christmas are connected and starts as soon as the first book named Genesis in "The Bible". When Eve and Adam commit their first sin, God comes to them and abandons them from the Garden of Eden. Here he also says that a savior will be born from a woman's womb in the form of a human being. This savior will save humanity from all sins and its consequence. So Jesus was born and lived a life without sin. Then He was crucified for the crimes that He did not commit. Because He sacrificed himself for the sin of humans and He was without sin, He came back to life on the third day. So it is believed that He was crucified on Friday (Good Friday) and rose again on Sunday. This was termed as His resurrection. Later, He was believed to have been lifted up to the heavens in His flesh and body.

How to celebrate Easter

The rituals of Easter start from one month or forty days before the exact date. Forty days before Easter, Christians keep a fast known as Lent, during which they give up something that they cherish most. This can be anything, right from giving up eating meat or even chocolate to eating just once a day. The point of this fast is to spend time in penance and prayer. Although traditionally this fast is for forty days, some people also keep it for one week or a day. The Sunday that comes before Easter is known as the Palm Sunday. It was the day Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem. It is called Palm Sunday because palm leaves were spread out for him welcome. The Friday after this is the Good Friday, the day of crucifixion. Usually evening prayers are held on this day to remember the sacrifice of Jesus. Holy Communion is held on this day. It is a ritual that commemorates the last supper Jesus had with his disciples when he told them that he was going to be crucified. Wine and bread are taken as holy sacraments wherein the wine signifies blood and bread signifies flesh. The Saturday is kept as a day to be spent in prayer. On the Sunday of Easter, usually a very early morning church service is kept.
