Easter traditions in India

Easter is one of the most significant festivals in the Christian calendar and marks the beginning of the spring season. The occasion is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm throughout the world. The holiday commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. India is a land of cultural diversity; hence every festival is celebrated with great pomp and show. Although Christians constitute a meager 3% of the total population in India, the festive spirit of Easter is no less. Being multi-ethnic, the country respects and honors every religion and celebrates Easter with the same religious solemnization as any other festival. A spring time festival, the celebrations start with Lent and end with Easter Sunday.
