Lots of people would feel guilty if they didn’t go to church on an Easter Sunday. They have the mentality that doing this can give God and Jesus Christ recognition in their life, but they should be doing this every single day instead of just once a year.

For Christians around the world, attending mass on Christmas Day and Easter is a tradition. They feel obligated to go to church on the day that the Lord was resurrected. Inactive Christians go to church to celebrate the hope of having everlasting life given to us by Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for the sake of many. People who are too old to attend Sunday church fellowship summon up every ounce of energy to attend church on Easter. Easter season also marks the greatest festival in the Christian calendar because it is the end of forty long days of prayer, fasting and alms giving which is also known as Lent.
Young children and teenagers add to the many people who go to church on Easter. They sit patiently on the church chairs and listen to the pastor, priest or elder talk about the Jesus’ martyrdom for his disciples. Not even the best folding tables and chairs can prevent the boredom from happening. Some members of different denominations take neighbors and close friends who are unbelievers to the church so they can also experience a moment of spirituality. The pastor or priest also talks about things that can benefit the listeners of his sermon so the faith of others will be renewed.
Before Easter, the church is arranged and beautified to welcome unbelievers and “prodigal sons” alike. Some church members buy new décor for the house of worship like new pews or communion tables if the old one looks like it needs replacement.

Numerous people pack churches on Easter to experience something that will preserve their faith and inspire their hope of getting a better life.
