The tradition of celebrating Easter holidays 2020 has its origin in the era before Christ. In the ancient world, agriculture was the main source of livelihood. People lived in complete harmony with nature and the earth in small farming communities. Spring was considered the period of hope and regeneration after the cold winter season. Since the Sun was worshipped as a God for blessing the crops with sunlight and rain, people prayed to it on a Sunday in spring for a good harvest and the fertility of their farm animals. This day marked the start of the sowing season and was celebrated as the festival of Easter. This tradition was being followed much before the birth of Jesus Christ.

The Roman calendar is based on the lunar cycle (depending on the moon) which is of 28 days. So, they consider every month to be of 28 days. However the standard calendar followed by the modern world is based on the Sun. So, according to it, every month is of 30 days. The two calendars are not synchronized due to this discrepancy. So, the date on which Easter will be celebrated every year does not remain the same and so is the case with Easter Holidays 2020. The only thing which is constant is that it is celebrated on a Sunday between the 12th of March and the 18th of April.

Easter gained significance when it was linked to the resurrection of Jesus Christ when he came back from the dead after being crucified on the cross. His return was a symbol of hope for Christians everywhere. Earlier also, Easter was celebrated as a symbol of hope and fertility. Now it gained in popular perception as the most important festival for Christians the world over. The Church propagated the religious relevance of this day to attract people back to the faith.
