Easter, also Pascha or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
Easter Sunday is the Sunday following the paschal full moon date. The paschal full moon date is the ecclesiastical full moon date following 20 March. The Gregorian method derives paschal full moon dates by determining the epact for each year. The epact can have a value from * (0 or 30) to 29 days.
The egg, an ancient symbol of new life, has been in association with pagan festivals celebrating spring. From a Christian perspective, Easter eggs are said to represent Jesus’ emergence from the tomb and resurrection.
