Easter is one of the most important Christian holidays and celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his crucifixion, in 30 A.D. 

Like many religious festivals, Easter as we recognise it today has its roots in a variety of ancient festivals and religious observances and many of the symbols and ideas associated with Easter are also rooted in pagan mythology. One of the possible origins of the word “Easter” is the name "Eostre," the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility. It may also have origins in the Old High German word "eostarum" which means “dawn”. Easter also shares many symbols and observances with the Jewish Passover.
