Besides Christmas, Easter is one of the most popular Christian holidays. On this day, Christians celebrate the
resurrection of Jesus after his death. During the Civil War period, Easter became a popular holiday that families
would find comforting and spiritual. They began celebrating the holiday on a regular basis. Today, many
families celebrate Easter to mark the resurrection of Jesus. Traditionally, families go to an Easter church
service, will hold an egg hunt for the children and will gather for a meal.
