Easter is a Christian feast and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary as described in the New Testament.
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 etymologically related or homonymous. Easter customs vary across the Christian world, but attending sunrise services, exclaiming the Paschal greeting, clipping the church and decorating Easter eggs, a symbol of the empty tomb, are common motifs. Additional customs include egg hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter parades, and are observed by both Christians and non-Christians.
Here a photo of a mass inside the Rio de Janeiro Cathedral. Happy Easter for all!

Thanks Andre for the scene on this special day.
After all, there is always an important motive in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ that makes us, His beloved people wide awake. Photograph itself can deliver a strong message to those who still keep hearts, eyes, and ears closed to the good news. Alleluia!!!
