What is the high Sabbath?

There were two high sabbath days associated with the feast of unleavened bread which began on Nisan 15 every year. God commanded it to Israel in Leviticus 23. 

John 19:31

ESV - 31 Since it was the day of Preparation, and so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.
