复活节(主复活日)是现今基督教徒的重要节日之一,定在每年春分月圆之后第一个星期日。基督徒认为,复活节象征重生与希望,乃纪念耶稣基督于公元33年被钉死后第三天复活的事迹。但是现在,许多与复活节相关的民间风俗,都不是起源于基督教的。

《圣经·新约全书》记载,耶稣被钉死在十字架上,第三天身体复活,复活节因此得名。复活节是基督宗教最重大的节日,重要性超过圣诞节,宗教起源与节期在以色列。按《圣经·马太福音》的说法,耶稣基督在十字架上受刑死后三天复活,因而设立此节。历史学家根据《圣经》和先进以色列人逾越节的日期,推算出在春分日(3月21日)之后月满后的第一个星期天就是《圣经》中讲到耶稣复活的日子。由于每年的春分日都不固定,所以每年的复活节的具体日期也是不确定的。但节期大致在3月22日至4月25日之间。

关于耶稣基督之死,按基督教教义,是为了赎世人的罪;耶稣基督的身体复活,是为了叫信徒得到永生。因此,在基督宗教中,复活节具有极度重要伟大的意义。

英国大部分节日都起源于宗教。复活节发生在过了春分月圆后的第一个星期日,原是纪念西亚异教神明巴力的同父异母妹妹亚斯塔路降生的日子,亚斯塔路也是巴力的情妇。相传巴力得知妹妹亚斯塔路生于一枚天鹅蛋中,就去灌木中寻找;找到了,就抱在怀里孵化出了一只兔子;兔子长大后成了一个美女,和巴力同居,后来在巴力危难之际还救过巴力一命。英语单词Easter的词源就是亚斯塔路。


Easter, also called Pascha or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

The week before Easter is called Holy Week, and it 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 western Christianity, Eastertide, the Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the fiftieth day, Pentecost Sunday. In Orthodoxy, the season of Pascha begins on Pascha and ends with the coming of the fortieth 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 determined on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established two rules, independence of the Jewish calendar and worldwide uniformity, which were the only rules for Easter explicitly laid down by the council. No details for the computation were specified; these were worked out in practice, a process that took centuries and generated a number of controversies. It has come to be the first Sunday after the ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or soonest after 21 March, but calculations vary in East and West.

Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many languages, the words for "Easter" and "Passover" are identical or very similar. Easter customs vary across the Christian world, and include sunrise services, exclaiming the Paschal greeting, clipping the church,and decorating Easter eggs (symbols of the empty tomb). The Easter lily, a symbol of the resurrection, traditionally decorates the chancel area of churches on this day and for the rest of Eastertide. Additional customs that have become associated with Easter and are observed by both Christians and some non-Christians include egg hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter parades.There are also various traditional Easter foods that vary regionally.
