    On Sunday, April 12, 2015, Orthodox Christians worldwide celebrate Easter.

    Easter is the most important festival of the Eastern Orthodox Churches, celebrating the Christian belief of Jesus Christ's resurrection. The Easter date is set around the time of the Vernal Equinox (March 21) and, since most Eastern Christian Churches use the Julian calendar, where March 21 corresponds, during the 21st century, to April 3 in the Gregorian Calendar, they celebrate Easter between April 4 and May 8 (April 12 in 2015).
