Easter, one of the oldest and most anticipated feast of the year.
Easter is one of the most important religious celebrations. It has ancient origins and over time the rituals related to this feast have consolidated and today, even those who are not believers, do not miss the opportunity to take advantage of the Easter holidays to enjoy some good moments. In particular, Easter was born in the Jewish religion, which recalls the liberation of Jewish people from Egyptian slavery, and then it gives rise to the Christian one with the rites that trace the Passion and Resurrection of Christ. It is one of the feast that every year falls on different days, on the Sunday after the first full moon of Spring, also conditioning other feast such as Pentecost and Ascension. It is usually celebrated between the end of March and the end of April, thus calling itself "high" or "low". In recent centuries, Orthodox Easter has also originated, differing from the Catholic one because the date is set considering the Julian calendar and not the Gregorian one. However, it remains an opportunity to share moments of joy with loved ones and friends.
