In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.
As it happens, Easter is celebrated because three days prior, Jesus was brutally killed and burried... and then, three days later on a Sunday, he rose from death changing history forever. This is why you enjoy a two day weekend. That's why our entire calendar is structured around Jesus' life. That's why my life makes sense.
My lovelies, happy Easter
