Easter is a special day for people who believe in Jesus Christ. Easter is the day when Jesus Christ returned from the dead. For some people, Easter is the most important day in the year. Some people, who don’t believe in Jesus Christ, celebrate Easter as the beginning of spring.

Some people believe that Jesus was killed on the cross 2000 years ago in the city of Jerusalem. The people killed Jesus because they believed that he was a problem for the bosses of the city. He was killed on Friday but on Sunday he returned from the dead. After this moment, people believed that Jesus was Son of God.

Today, people celebrate Easter in many countries. They make Easter eggs. They give eggs to children. They visit friends and family and they have good food. People have nice clothes and they go to church. For some people, it is the beginning of new life which comes every spring.

In the video, you can see how people celebrate Easter in the US.
