Easter is the most important celebration in the Christian liturgical year. For Christians, Passover is identical to Jesus, whom Paul called “the lamb of the Passover”; the Christian church to this day believes that Jesus was crucified, died and was buried, and on the third day rose from the dead.

Easter celebrates the resurrection day and is the most important celebration because it commemorates the most sacred event in the life of Jesus, as recorded in the four Gospels in the New Testament. This celebration is also called Easter Sunday, Resurrection Day, or Resurrection Sunday.
Easter also refers to a period in the church calendar called the Easter period, which is a period that was celebrated for forty days from Easter Sunday (the peak of Holy Week) until the day of the Ascension of Jesus but now that period is extended to fifty days, that is until the day Pentecost (which means “fiftieth day” – the 50th day after Easter, the descent of the Holy Spirit took place).
The first Sunday in the Easter period is called the Easter Octave by the Roman Catholic Church. Easter also ends the Lenten celebration which began forty days before Maundy Thursday, which is a period of prayer, regret, and preparation for mourning.
Easter is a holiday that changes its date because it is adjusted to a certain day (in this case Sunday), not a specific date in the civil calendar. Other Christian festivals are adjusted according to the Easter day using a complex formula.
Easter is usually celebrated between the end of March to the end of April (Western Christianity) or the beginning of April to the beginning of May (Eastern Christianity) every year, depending on the lunar cycle. After hundreds of years the churches did not reach an agreement, now all the churches have accepted the calculations of the Alexandrian Church (now called the Coptic Church) which determines that Easter falls on the first Sunday after the Easter Full Moon, which is the first full moon which is the fourteenth day ( ecclesiastical “full moon” falls on or after March 21 (vernal Spring point / vernal ecclesiastical equinox)
Easter Sunday is not the same celebration (but it is still related) to the Jewish Passover in terms of symbolism and its calendar. Indonesian does not have different terms for Pasakh Pesakh (Jewish) and Paskha (Christian) as some European languages have two different terms, therefore the word Easter can have two different meanings in Indonesian.
Many cultural elements, including Easter rabbits, Easter eggs, and sending Easter cards have become part of modern Easter celebrations, and these elements are usually celebrated by Christians and non-Christians alike.
