The Observance of Ascension, or Hemelvaartsdag in Dutch, is a Christian celebration that marks the day when Jesus Christ ascended bodily into heaven. This event is celebrated annually by believers as a testament to their faith and a reminder of the hope for eternal life.

The Ascension (Biblical) has origins in the New Testament of the Bible, specifically in the books of Mark, Luke, and Acts. Occurring 40 days after Easter, it marks the culmination of Jesus' resurrection narrative and signifies his final departure from Earth. According to biblical accounts, Jesus led his disciples to the Mount of Olives, where he blessed them and instructed them to continue his work before ascending into the sky before their eyes. This event establishes the basis for the Christian belief in Jesus' presence at the right hand of God, interceding on behalf of believers.
In the Netherlands, the Ascension is celebrated on the 40th day after Easter, also known as Ascension Day.This occasion is often marked by church services, community gatherings, and local traditions, giving the Dutch an opportunity to honor the divine and connect with their spiritual heritage.
