In the Christian calendar, Easter is the most important festivity as it marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Easter commences on Palm Sunday (the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem) which this year is on Sunday 29th March.
Maundy Thursday (the night of the Last Supper) is on April 2nd.
The following day, April 3 is Good Friday (the day Jesus died on the cross) and on Easter Day April 5 we celebrate Jesus coming back to life.
The festival concludes with a bank holiday, Easter Monday, on April 6, 2015.
