Easter around the world

Easter is the central feast in the Christian liturgical year commemorating the Resurrection of Jesus, which Christians believe happened three days after he was buried, having been crucified by Roman authorities just outside of Jerusalem.

Easter takes place at the same time as Jewish Passover and, as such, is not a fixed date on the calendar but instead moves around. Traditionally the Easter Season lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day. The first week of the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter. The week from Palm Sunday to Easter is known as Holy Week. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of fasting, prayer, and penance.
