Easter is a holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the Christian religion. According to the New Testament of the Bible, the event occurred three days after Jesus was crucified by the Romans and died in or around 30 A.D. The holiday concludes "The Passion of The Christ", a series of events and holidays that begin with lent. Lent is a 40-day period of fasting, sacrifice and prayer. The 40 day period ends with Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Although this holiday is of high religious significance in the Christian faith, several traditions associated with Easter date back to pagan times. 

Easter 2019 is April 21. However, every year the holiday falls on a different day.  Easter Sunday is a holiday, among others, that is considered a "movable feast". Easter always falls on a Sunday between March 22nd and April 25th.

The resurrection of Jesus is essentially the foundation of the Christian religion. According to the New Testament, Jesus was arrested by the Romans because he claimed to be the "Son of God". The arrest was motivated by Romans viewing Jesus as a threat to their empire. Jesus was sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate. This day is recognized as "Good Friday" as His resurrection three days later proved that He was the Son of God.

Passover is a Jewish holiday, often associated with Easter. Their connection is seen in The Last Supper, which occurred the night before Jesus was arrested and persecuted. The Last Supper was essentially a feat. The New Testament identifies the bread as His body and the wine as His blood. These rituals would one day symbolize the sacrifice that the Son of God was about to make in His death, becoming the basic ritual for the Holy Communion.

 Egg decorating may have become a tradition on the celebration of Easter in a nod to the religious significance of Easter, Jesus' resurrection or "re-birth".

The exact origins of the Easter Bunny are unknown, however, some believe it arrived in America with immigrants from Germany in the 1700s. Rabbits are, in many cultures, known as enthusiastic pro creators, so the arrival of baby bunnies in springtime became associated with birth and renewal, another link to the resurrection of Jesus. 

The historical Easter dinner-LAMB. Lamb was often used as a sacrifice animal in Jewish traditions and it frequently served during Passover. The phrase "Lamb of God" is used to refer to Jesus and the sacrificial nature of his death.
