Easter, one of the holiest days on the Christian calendar, is today.
The religious holiday, according to the Bible, commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The day follows such notable days as Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, the day of Christ’s crucifixion and two days before he rose again on what is now celebrated as Easter.
Throughout our county, state and nation, events leading up to Easter, or, as some say, Easter Sunday, are a part of Holy Week.
Easter, unlike Christmas, doesn’t always fall on the same day.
