Ascension Day is the fortieth day after Easter. This is the day when Christians celebrate Jesus’s ascension into heaven.

Pentecost is an important festival in the Christian calendar and is often described as the Church’s birthday. It is celebrated 50 days after Easter Sunday and brings the Easter season to an end. The word “Pentecost” comes from the Greek word for “fiftieth”.
