Easter commemorates Jesus' resurrection three days after his crucifixion and death. Following his death, he was removed from the cross and buried in a tomb. On Sunday, Jesus' tomb was found empty. Angels informed onlookers that Jesus had risen. Throughout the next 40 days, Jesus appeared to his apostles and disciples before finally ascending to heaven.
Easter is the highest and holiest of holidays in the Christian faith. It is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the spring equinox, usually occurring between March 22 and April 25.
