What actually an Easter day is? It is the day when Jesus’ resurrection occurred after he was crucified. It’s a day of resurrection, the day of new birth. The sacredness of Christ resurrection is celebrated on the Easter day. Easter day is perhaps the oldest and most sacred festival for Christians. It is a very common practice of finding an Easter date. The first Sunday which follows the very first full moon after vernal equinox is called Easter day.

Easter season is the most festive and celebrated festival in Christian Easter calendar. Christians celebrate Easter with joy and fun. This is perhaps the most awaited celebration of the year for them. Easter day is very holy and it symbolises new life, hence the concept of Easter eggs. Everyone knows how a chick hatches from an egg. Similarly a new life is born from the egg. That’s predominantly the concept here. Very closely associated with Easter egg is Easter bunny. Rabbit is the most fertile species on the animal planet. Hence Easter bunny represents new life and fertility. It is the most popular symbol for Easter.

Easter Monday follows the day Easter Sunday, another day of celebrations for Christians. Easter is the most celebrated vacation of the year and people wait for it to come. Friends and relatives gather on Easter vacation and wish each other with blessings and auspicious wishes; they spend time, relax and enjoy the moments of togetherness and fulfilment. Perhaps no other festival is celebrated as much as the Easter vacation in the Christian calendar. Easter Monday is actually a national holiday for the people in the Christian countries. Immediately after Easter Sunday, Easter Monday follows. The precise date for the Easter is actually a matter of debate for many. However the day is very popular amongst the Christian community and people wait for it throughout the year.

Easter egg is very popular symbol of Easter. Just like a chick hatches from an egg that’s how a new life comes out of an egg. This concept of Easter egg is used as a metaphor of new life of Jesus’ in this celebration. Eggs are painted; people boil these eggs and decorate them in the various corner of the house. Eggs are now being replaced with chocolate stuffed plastics eggs and children actually love them. Tradition is to hide these eggs from children until the day, and on the Easter day, children are supposed to find them. When they succeed in finding it, they enjoy and celebrate it with joy. There are many countries where egg decoration competition is also held. The eggs are beautifully decorated and are scattered on the floor, participants dance on the eggs trying not to break them. Dancers practice for the competition throughout the year and present this wonderful event in front of audience. The competition sets a splendid environment. However this is how the Christians actually celebrate the festival of Easter, the joy and the good feelings together. It is a beautiful and vivid festival for Christians.
