How Are Easter And Passover Related

How Are Easter And Passover Related, We deck December with more carols and jingles than April, but this is arguably the most appropriate time for season’s greetings. Part of that is because the April calendar includes Easter and Passover – major, if not the most important, holy days in Christianity and Judaism.

Easter is when Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of their savior, Jesus Christ. For some believers, observance began with Lent weeks ago. The main holiday is Easter Sunday, today.

Passover is when Jews celebrate the Hebrews’ liberation from slavery in Egypt. It began with a Friday Seder dinner and lasts for a week, this week.

There’re a multiplicity of practices, permutations and related liturgies in both traditions, but there’re commonalities, as illustrated in the following vignettes.
