The way in which some Christian churches envision and celebrate the 365/366 day year. Sunday begins the week, every week. Emphasis is given to Christian holy days rather than secular holidays

The Christian Calendar begins with the first Sunday in Advent (the four weeks before Christmas) and moves through Christmas, Epiphany, Ordinary Time, Lent (the 40 days, other than Sundays, before Easter), Easter, and Ordinary Time. Other special days within the Christian Calendar celebrate and draw attention to specific events in the life of Jesus Christ and/or the Church over the millenia. These include: Baptism of the Lord, Transfiguration of the Lord, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday/Holy Friday, Ascension of the Lord, Day of Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, All Saints' Day, and Christ the King.
On the Christian Calendar Easter is a season instead of just one day.
