Easter Monday is a public holiday in Australia and will be observed on Monday, the 1st of April 2024.
Easter Monday follows Easter Sunday, a Christian festival that, according to tradition, celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death. According to the New Testament, this occurred on the third day of his burial in 30AD.
