复生节英语作文范文：The origin of Easter
Easter is a religious holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death by crucifixion some 2,000 years ago. For Christians, Easter is a day of religious services and the gathering of family.
The genesis of Easter was rooted in pagan gods that were worshiped prior to Canada‘s existence; but for Canada, Easter began and continues to be celebrated as a Christian event.
In many churches Easter is preceded by a season of prayer, abstinence, and fasting called Lent. This is observed in memory of the 40 days‘ fast of Christ in the desert. In Eastern Orthodox churches Lent is 50 days. In Western Christendom Lent is observed for six weeks and four days.
