Easter is the most important religious feast in the Christian liturgical year. Christians celebrate this day in observance of Jesus Christ's resurrection two days after his crucifixion.
Easter also refers to the season of the church year called Eastertide or the Easter Season. Traditionally the Easter Season lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day but now officially lasts for the fifty days until Pentecost. The first week of the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of prayer and penance.
