No it wasn't. The day Jesus was crucified was good Friday. Easter sunday is the day He rose from the dead. Easter Sunday is the day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, three days after he was executed by crucifixion.

Easter is celebrated by Christians as a joyous holiday because it represents the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Old Testament and the revelation of God's salvific plan for all of humankind. In commemorating the Resurrection of Jesus, Easter also celebrates the defeat of death and the hope of salvation.
