Easter is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In countries where Christianity is a state religion, or where the country
has large Christian population, Easter is a public holiday. Many Americans follow the tradition of coloring hard-boiled eggs and giving baskets of candy. On Easter Monday,
the President of the United States holds an annual Easter egg roll on the White House lawn for young children. New York City holds an annual Easter parade on Easter Sunday.
