Spring is here, as indicated by the spring equinox on Jan. March marks And the deepest sign of spring is 15 days later, Easter, the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ

Easter has been celebrated as the most important and important Christian holiday, but almost stifled with all the many other customs.But the work of the cross and the historical resurrection of Christ are the main reason for Easter, which form the basis of the Christian faith, Christ is not only of the Risen dead but also appeared to a number of witnesses as he had predicted It is thoroughly and historically a documented fact
