This video from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly shows theologians, scholars, and church officials discussing the many ways Easter is observed in the United States. The Christian Holy Day of Easter celebrates the divine nature of Jesus Christ and commemorates the Christian belief in His death and resurrection. Orthodox Christians, Catholics, and Protestant denominations have established unique Easter practices, such as faith-healing services, early-morning prayer services and candlelight vigils. While Easter services may differ, all Christians observe the Easter Holy Day as the most important event in the Christian liturgical year.
