On April 10, Christian believers celebrate Easter Monday, celebrating of Jesus Christ’s resurrection. Religious texts do not contain strict prescriptions regarding observing this day. The Christian world honors significant dates associated with the name of their Savior. Easter Monday is especially popular among Orthodox believers and Roman Catholics.
The holiday has its roots in the XV century. It marks the end of Lent. After Jesus came out of the tomb, he stayed on this earthly world for 40 days. He preached, spreading truth and secret knowledge, and healed people. After this period, he ascended to heaven.
How to take part
Christians prefer to celebrate this holiday by arranging solemn processions. Eggs painted for Easter remain relevant. Largest one was presented in Italy, weighing 8 tons, made of chocolate.
- Some diasporas call the holiday Wet Monday, and pour water from buckets: this is a symbol of purification, renewal, new life, and freedom from past hardships.
- Give flowers. The lily is a symbol of purity and beauty with its elegant lines.
This joyful holiday is celebrated with the family and children. Join peaceful parades, participate in funny egg-rolling contests, go out into your yard, splashing loved ones with water, dry off in the spring sun. It is time of good changes!
