Christians celebrate their "holy" day on Sundays because when Christianity was just developing in the first century, it was customory for both Jewish and non-Jewish Christians to gather on the day of the resurrection, which was the day AFTER the Sabbath.

Simply put, according to the Gospels, Christ rose on the first day of the week. This was, according to Christian theology, the fulfillment of the Sabbath day, that Christ rested in the tomb on the Sabbath. Therefore, the Christian rests in Him.
The Book of the Acts of the Apostles shows that the apostolic college gathered together on the first day of the week amongst themselves, which was celebrated as the Lord's Day, i.e., the day of resurrection. Their "sabbath keeping" was limited to visiting synagogues on Saturdays for the sole purpose of proclaiming the new dispensation to observant Jews.
