Biblically, Easter is three days after the Lord Jesus died on the cross to give mankind victory over sin. There is no fixed date as to when Easter is to be celebrated every year as it is celebrated depending on when the first full moon appears.

The week before Easter is celebrated is called the Holy week. Within this week, we have Palm Sunday, which happens to be the day the Lord Jesus went to Jerusalem.



Then there is Maundy Thursday, also called the last supper, which was the time Jesus met with his disciples to observe Passover and finally the very popular Good Friday which was the day Jesus was crucified on the cross.
