Easter Sunday is one of the most critical days in the Christian calendar. It marks the day that Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven, the cornerstone of the Christian faith and the core belief of millions of people worldwide.

Easter is also a time for celebration and reflection, as it brings families and friends together to celebrate the resurrection. It is a time for giving thanks and rejoicing in faith. Easter Sunday is also a holiday and a time for people to enjoy traditional foods, decorations, and activities, such as egg hunts and Easter egg decorating.


These activities are based on the Christian belief that Jesus conquered death through his resurrection and the promise of new life He brings to believers.
