However, many companies, including banks, malls, shopping centers and most private retail stores that normally open on Sundays are closed on Easter. Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For Christians, Easter is a day of religious services and the gathering of family. Many Americans follow old traditions of coloring hard-boiled eggs and giving children baskets of candy.
