Easter is one of the most important days for Christians across the world as it marks the resurrection of Christ after he was crucified on Good Friday. In 2021, Easter is being observed on April 4 and is a part of the Holy Week that also includes Maundy Thursday when Jesus took the Last Supper.
As per the Bible, after Jesus’ crucifixion, his body was wrapped in linen and buried in a tomb that was covered with a massive stone. As per the story, on Sunday morning, angels rolled away the stone and Jesus walked out of the tomb. Jesus’ resurrection is often considered to be a symbol of victory over sin and death. Easter sees services being held and people singing hymns in praise of Christ and the festival.
