Coptic Easter

Coptic Easter is a fast-breaking celebration, and the most important Coptic event of the year. The exact date of Coptic Easter varies according to the Coptic solar calendar, but always falls sometime between late March and the end of April. Mass is held on the eve to mark the end of Lent - 40 days of fasting, during which Copts follow a vegan diet. Coptics spend their Easter going to church, visiting relatives and having a picnic. One of the most popular places for picnics is Urman Gardens.
