According to Christian belief, Jesus Christ was crucified and died on Friday known as Good Friday. He was buried in his grave and rose from the dead on the third Sunday. This event is known as Resurrection and is celebrated as Easter Sunday. 

In many cultures, this period was marked by the exchange of eggs, which were believed symbols of new life. Early Christians embraced and used these traditions to express the new life that comes from Jesus Christ’s Resurrection.

In today’s time, people celebrate this day through church services, family reunions, and the exchange of Easter eggs along with other gifts.
