Easter is a religious holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and it has been observed by Christians for centuries. The word "Easter" comes from the Old English word "Ēastre," which was the name of a pagan goddess of spring and fertility. The holiday is celebrated in various ways around the world, with different traditions and customs.
