Ascension Day is a Christian holiday that celebrates the ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven. According to Christian tradition, Jesus was crucified on Good Friday, rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, and then remained on Earth for 40 days before ascending into heaven.

Ascension Day is observed on the 40th day after Easter Sunday, which falls on a Thursday. It is considered a major feast day in the Christian calendar and is an important holy day for many Christians around the world.
