To mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Christian community celebrates the Easter festival. The community observes the resurrection of Christ on the third day after he was crucified. To commemorate the day, services were also held on the eve of Easter and continue throughout the night. On the main day, thanksgiving prayers and masses would be held.

Meanwhile, at homes, people organize gatherings and feasts for their loved one. This is a day full of purity which after the forty fasting days and after Good Friday, the day which commemorates the crucifixion of Christ.

Crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection is one of the cornerstones of Christian Church.

Significance of the Easter eggs is that the eggs is a symbol of ‘new life’ and hence they are exchanged to celebrate the new life of Christ.
