Correction: April 1, 2013

An earlier version of this article mischaracterized the Christian holiday of Easter. It is the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, not his resurrection into heaven.

The writer whose piece had to be corrected to fix the meaning of Easter, a celebration nearly 2,000 years old and honored without confusion by about a billion Christians, is Elisabetta Povoledo. For whatever that’s worth.
