Easter , [nb 1] also called Pascha Aramaic , Greek , Latin [nb 2] or Resurrection Sunday ,   is a Christian festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. Most Christians refer to the week before Easter as " Holy Week ", which contains the days of the Easter Triduum , including Maundy Thursday , commemorating the Maundy and Last Supper ,   as well as Good Friday , commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. In Eastern Christianity , the season of Pascha begins on Pascha and ends with the coming of the 40th day, the Feast of the Ascension. Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts which do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which follow only the cycle of the Sun; rather, its date is offset from the date of Passover and is therefore calculated based on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar.
