  1. Easter, the principal festival of the Christian church year, celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his Crucifixion. The origins of Easter date to the beginnings of Christianity.
    Meanwhile, many of the cultural historians find, in the celebration of Easter, a convergence of the three traditions – Pagan, Hebrew and Christian.
    Easter owes its origin to the old Teutonic mythology. It was derived from the name Eostre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, to whom the month of April was dedicated. The festival of Eostre was celebrate at the vernal equinox, when the day and night gets an equal share of the day.
    The English name “Easter” is much newer. When the early English Christians wanted others to accept Christianity, they decided to use the name Easter for this holiday so that it would match the name of the old spring celebration.
    Throughout the Christendom , the Sunday of Pascua had become a holiday to honour Christ. At the same time many of the pagan spring rites came to be a part of its celebration.
    The Feast of Easter was well established by the second century. The dating of Easter today follows the same. Accordingly, churches in the West observe it on the first day of the full moon that occurs on or following the spring equinox on March 21, it became a movable feast between March 21 and April 25.
