Did you know that the Christian holiday Easter is better known as “Pascha” in Greek and Latin? It is also called the resurrection Sunday as it is known to be celebrating the resurrection of Lord Jesus from the dead. According to the New Testament of Bible, this is said to have occurred on the 3rd day following his crucifixion by the Cavalry Romans in the 30AD.
History of “Holy Week” and observances
The celebration is said to start with Lent, a 40-day fasting period culminating the “Passion of Christ” celebrations, as it is known, with the “holy week”. It begins on the last Sunday before Easter, called the “Palm Sunday”. It is then followed with Maundy (a religious rite of washing of the feet observed by Christians) Thursday in honour of “Last Supper”. It is followed by “Good Friday”, which is observed in honour of the “crucifixion and death of Lord Jesus”.
