Jim Stark (the James Dean character) tells his parents "Happy Easter" when they arrive at the police station to pick him up after his arrest for public drunkenness. The maid who takes care of Plato (Sal Mineo's character) also mentions "the holiday". Judy (Natalie Wood) also mentions that she had plans to celebrate Easter with her family (specifically, her father). The entire story appears to take place over the course of a bit more than 24 hours.
