Easter: Sunday after first full moon on or after first day of spring
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world
to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Easter, commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is the holiest Christian holiday of the year.
Believers celebrate the rebirth of their lord by attending special worship services.
Easter egg hunts, in which children search for dyed eggs
hidden by the "Easter Bunny," originate from pagan
festivals honoring Eostre, the goddess of spring. Early Christian missionaries incorporated aspects of these
festivals in the hopes of converting those who celebrated them.
