Interesting Facts

Easter Sunday, a pivotal holiday for Christians worldwide, commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, an event that is foundational to Christian faith and celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox, making its date variable between March 22nd and April 25th.

Its traditions blend religious significance with various customs, such as the Easter egg, symbolizing new life and rebirth, which has its roots in ancient pagan festivals celebrating spring.

The White House Easter Egg Roll, a unique American tradition started in 1878 by President Rutherford B. Hayes, exemplifies how Easter celebrations can vary culturally and include both solemn religious observances and playful family-oriented activities.

Moreover, Easter is preceded by Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance, demonstrating the holiday’s deep spiritual significance and its role in preparing believers for the joy of Easter Sunday.
