Easter in Jerusalem Roman Catholics and Protestant denominations celebrated Easter on March 27th. Here are some facts about Easter: • Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the Christian religion. • Eggs have been seen as ancient symbol of fertility, while springtime is considered to bring new life and rebirth. • Easter takes place on a Sunday, after the 40-day period called Lent. Lent is referred to as a time of fasting, but participants focus more on giving up one significant indulgence. • This year, Roman Catholics and Protestant denominations celebrate Easter on 27 March, and the eastern Orthodox churches mark it on Sunday 1 May – an unusually long gap. 14

• Bethlehem, the city of Jesus’s birth, which is in the West Bank and about 50,000 Christians live in the West Bank • Easter falls on a different date each year. Technically, Easter falls on the first Sunday after the full Moon after the Vernal Equinox.
