Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone, I'm Alisha.
Easter Sunday in the United States is among the most important religious holidays in the nation. There are also secular events held around this holiday and, in some cases, family celebrate traditions other than the Christian one. For Christians, the holiday is centered on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Churches hold special events during Easter weekend.
Besides midnight masses on Christmas, Easter services are some of the most popular in churches in the United States. Do you know when many of them hold these services?
Weโ€™ll show you the answer at the end of this video.
Aside from the religious traditions which vary from church to church, Easter Sunday in the United States is celebrated in other ways, as well. Whether or not they happen to be followers of any church, people in the United States are inclined to have family gatherings on this day, and large feasts are usually served. For some people, Easter Sunday is merely a celebration of spring while, for others, it has tremendous religious significance.
The most prevalent Easter Sunday tradition involves church services. Some churches hold elaborate parades to celebrate the day and others have less noticeable celebrations. Most churches at least have social events over the Easter holiday, allowing people to spend time with their fellow churchgoers and to socialize. Picnics and other events are also commonly held during this particular holiday.
Secular events held during Easter Sunday include Easter egg hunts and other activities for children. These events are open to everyone and don't have any particular religious overtones to them. Community events are often held, as well, simply because the holiday is notable and people tend to want to get together. The Easter Bunny, eggs, flowers, and other symbols are very much associated with spring and are still important traditions for this particular holiday.
Because denominations in the United States are so diverse, you'll find many different traditions being celebrated on Easter Sunday. Some traditions involve all-night vigils before the holiday itself.
And now here's the answer to the quiz.
Do you know when many churches hold Easter services?
Services at the break of day are among the most popular church events on Easter Sunday. During these services, Christians come to church in the predawn hours and have their service as the sun rises. For many, these services have a powerful symbolic significance.

In my lovely country Egypt , easter sunday is very important religious feast. In our churches , the orthodox churches it is not called easter it is called the resurrection feast. we attends the mass from 8 pm to 12 am in saturday . In sunday most christians make a family gathering and eat together meat and chicken after fasting for a 55 days. But the secular celebration you mention as colouring eggs all egyptians not only christians celebrate it in monday and this is a pharonic feast called Sham El Naseim. Egyptians also eat smoked fish as Ringah and sardines in this day and go to the gardens. It is the most fantastic days in the year in Egypt .
