Residents and a few visitors pack the two local churches for this religious holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. As described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.
It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. Celebrations on this day include church services, festive family meals, Easter egg decorating, and gift-giving.
