Today is Easter, regarded as one of the holiest days of the Christian calendar.
Easter, also known as Pascha, is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day following his crucifixion at Calvary, according to the New Testament.
Easter follows Lent, the 40-day period of fasting, prayer and penance which begins with Ash Wednesday and continues through Holy Week, which includes Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.
If Easter seems to be coming early this year, it has. A year ago, Easter came on April 8 and two years ago it fell on April 24.
