Have you wondered what all the Christian Holidays are during the year? Here’s a list of them and a little about each of them. In the order they come throughout the year.
Palm Sunday–The Sunday before Easter Sunday. Palm Sunday marks the day that Jesus Christ entered Jerusalem. “The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the King of Israel”” John 12:12-13
Good Friday–The Friday right before Easter Sunday. Good Friday commemorates the day Jesus Christ was crucified, and died on the cross. “And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled himself and became obedient to death- even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name.” Philippians 2:8-9
Easter–The first Sunday after the full moon of the vernal equinox and varies each year between March 22nd and April 25th. Easter is the day of resurrection of Jesus Christ. Here some verses in the Bible that tell about it: “The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.” Matthew 28:5-8
Christmas–Christmas is December 25th every year. This is the day we celebrate Jesus Christ’s birth. “But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”” Luke 2:10-12 “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
These are the Common Christian Holidays. There are a few others like Lent and Ash Wednesday that are celebrated by Lutherans, Catholics and a few others. These verses were taken out of the New International Version of the Bible. Information about Christmas, Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter was supplied by Wikipedia.
