Easter Saturday History
Easter Saturday, also known as Holy Saturday and Easter Eve, commemorates the day that Jesus lay in his tomb after the crucifixion. On Good Friday, the day before Easter Saturday, Jesus was crucified and placed in a guarded tomb. He lay in the tomb on Easter Saturday while his disciples scattered in fear of receiving the same punishment. The following day, on Easter Sunday, women entered into the tomb to find that Christ had risen.
Easter Saturday is celebrated on the day before Easter Sunday every year. Since Easter is celebrated in conjunction with the lunar calendar, Easter Saturday can fall between 21 March and 25 April.
