Easter celebrates Jesus being raised from the dead. The Resurrection is the central mystery of the Christian faith.
In order to properly celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection, the central feast of Christianity, the Church sets aside 50 days of joyful celebration. These 50 days from Easter to Pentecost are celebrated as one feast day, sometimes called “the great Sunday.” Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring.
