One need not be Christian to recognize the significance of Easter Sunday to practicing Christians. However, non-Christians may not recognize that the week that precedes Easter Sunday is important and full of meaning as well. According to Christianity. com, the name 'Holy Week,' which is the name Christians have given to the week preceding Easter Sunday, can be traced all the way back to the fourth century. By the end of that century, Christians commemorated various events that unfolded in the week leading up to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. That's why Christians now celebrate Palm Sunday, Holy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday over the course of the week prior to Easter Sunday. Such celebrations underscore just how significant this period is for faithful Christians across the globe.
