Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Although a holiday of high religious significance in the Christian faith, many traditions associated with Easter date back to pre-Christian, pagan times.
When is Easter? Easter Sunday and related celebrations, such as Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday, are considered “moveable feasts”. Easter typically falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the spring equinox.
Why Is Easter Called ‘Easter’? St. Bede the Venerable maintains that the English word "Easter" comes from Eostre, or Eostrae, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility. Other historians maintain that “Easter” derives from "in albis", or “dawn," that became "eostarum" in Old High German.
