SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Millions around the world celebrated Easter Sunday today, including those right here at home.


The windy weather didn't stop hundreds from attending mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Downtown Savannah today.

Today is the day that christians believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead after being crucified three days before. This day also marks the end of 40 days of Lent. 

"Oh yeah, it should be a very happy day, a joyous day and it's a time for feasting, we've done our penance for 40 days and now the Easter season is for celebrating."

The cathedral held four easter masses today in addition to a Easter vigil last night.
