Easter in Canada holds a special significance referring to the amazing nationwide reception given to the festival. It attracts large scale fanfare and genuinely adds to the overall celebratory atmosphere in the country. The festival usually falls around the first Sunday after the first full moon following the Spring Equinox. However, if the Passover coincides with the same date, the Easter Sunday is pushed back a week. So, the commencement date can fall anywhere between March to April every year (usually, March 22 to April 25) and celebrations can last up to 40 days. The 3 prominent Easter days however, remain the most revered markings of the celebrations – The Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Sunday Monday. The three days mark the period of death to resurrection of Christ. The festival itself is a herald to the successful ending of Lent, the season of Penance and prayer.
