Holy Saturday

Holy Saturday (Latin: Sabbatum Sanctum), sometimes known as Easter Eve or Black Saturday, is the day after Good Friday. It is the day before Easter and the last day of Holy Week in which Christians prepare for Easter. It commemorates the day that Jesus Christ’s body laid in the tomb.It is sometimes erroneously referred to as Easter Saturday: this phrase is correctly applied to the Saturday in Easter Week and is the religious observance of Christians and is the immediate Saturday before Easter Sunday. It is known as the Holy Saturday because it is a part of the Holy week 2012 in which the Easter celebrations are being held. It is also known as the Easter Vigil, which is mainly the name given to the Saturday night, the night before the Easter Sunday. The religious belief in Christianity arose from the events and stories in the Bible and other religious literatures.
