The Season of Easter
Christ is Risen. Allelulia!
The season of Easter is the high point of the Christian church year, lasting not a only day, but for a full seven weeks after the celebration of Easter. The season of Easter is an extended feast wherein the paschal candle is lit at every service as a sign of the risen Christ.
Easter is the most important feast in the Christian calendar, even more important than Christmas.
In the Christian world, Easter (and the days immediately preceding it) is the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus.
