April 5, 2015 – Easter Sunday, Domingo de Pascua
One of Mexico’s biggest celebrations is Easter Sunday (Domingo de Pascua), which remembers the biblical story of when Jesus rose from death.
Easter is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary as described in the New Testament. Easter is the culmination of the Passion of Christ, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter
