Eastern Orthodox Christian Easter Day 2024 on May 5th, 2024

Eastern Orthodox Easter is on Sunday, 5 May 2024.

Blessed day to all my Eastern Orthodox Christian friends.

Easter, also called Pascha (Aramaic, Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a Christian festival and cultural holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c.30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus Christ, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.
