Marhaba! As you know millions of Christians around the world are celebrating Easter today on Sunday April 20th. It is a Christian holiday and festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion. Easter is preceded by Lent, which is a 40 day period of penance, fasting, and prayer. Easter is linked to the Jewish holiday and festival Passover by much of its symbolism and position in the calendar. In some languages, the words Easter and Passover are identical. Easter customs vary from one place to another. In most places of the world, Christians go to church at the break of dawn on the day of Easter and then decorate Easter eggs. Additional customs have emerged with Eastern season, such as egg hunting (which includes Christians and non-Christians), Easter parades, and various types of chocolate decorated by Easter bunnies.
