"The avenue leading up to the Vatican has been decorated with 35,000 flowers donated by the Netherlands."
London, April 20 - Thousands of people have gathered in Vatican City to celebrate Easter Sunday.

Pope Francis will lead the mass in St. Peter's Square right in front of the St. Peter's Basilica, BBC reported.

After leading the ceremony, Pope Francis will address the public.

He is expected to use his message to highlight the suffering of people in areas of conflict, including Ukraine.

The avenue leading up to the Vatican has been decorated with 35,000 flowers donated by the Netherlands.

Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday is the holiest day in the Christian calendar since it marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred three days after his crucifixion by the Romans.
