The actual date for Easter Sunday changes from year to year because it occurs on the Sunday after the appearance of the first full moon after the spring equinox (March 21).
Most business across the country, including retail, are closed on this day. Some restaurants, pharmacies and corner or convenience stores may be open.
This is a happy day for Christians, for it celebrates Jesus' resurrection. Families go to church and gather to have a larger dinner, usually serving ham or turkey.
Even people who are not very religious gather and celebrate Easter. Children are given gifts of chocolate in the shape of rabbits or eggs. Children may also decorate boiled chicken eggs (still in the shell) with paint or dyes.
