Easter Quotes - Easter is on Sunday in March or April when Christians celebrate Christ's return to life; the days leading up to and following Easter Sunday are known as Holy Week. It is a spiritual Easter.
Lent, the 40-day period preceding Easter that excludes Sundays, has historically been associated with Easter fasting. The commemoration of Jesus' Last Supper with his disciples on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, the day of his Crucifixion, Jesus was crucified alongside two other thieves on Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, the transition between Crucifixion and Resurrection, all occur close to Easter.
Christians were not permitted to hold any type of celebration in commemoration of Jesus' crucifixion, nor they were permitted to eat meat, wear flowers, or eat eggs.

He has risen, and he has come to bring us joy. No more sorrows, rejoice in Christ, and a very happy Easter to all! To wish people a happy Easter, here are some more Easter quotes.
