Christianity
Easter is celebrated in Christianity, because of Jesus. Jesus was put on the cross and died, but later came back to life (resurrected). Before Easter Lent (40 days) is celebrated to symbolize the days he struggled before he died and Lent is over with the celebration of Mardi Gras. The day he is resurrected is seen as a day of rebirth and new life. This has become the day to celebrate Easter.
