Easter is celebrated for it is the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which falls on the third day after his crucifixion as described in the New Testament. Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. The first Sunday after the full moon following the March equinox is when Easter is celebrated and the “Full Moon” is not necessarily the astronomically correct date. The date of Easter therefore varies between 22 March and 25 April. How the Easter Bunny came to be related to his is unknown, but it is a time of joy and celebration for everyone, and the Easter Eggs full of chocolate riches are surely a joy for young and adults alike.
So here are a few events happening in Pune for you to get into the Easter Celebrations:
