7 Easter Traditions to Help You Celebrate All Seven Weeks of Easter

Most people can tell you that Lent is 40 days, but how long is Easter? One day? Yes, Easter Sunday is one day, but do you know how long the season of Easter really is?

Seven weeks.

Think about that. Do you celebrate Easter one day, one weekend, all season, or with your entire life? Does the way you celebrate Easter show your family the importance of the Lord’s Resurrection in your life? Or is it all about the chocolate bunnies (or bilbies in Australia) and eggs with money inside? Do you know how to celebrate for the whole season and really inspire those around you to embrace their faith in Jesus as Savior?

“We are the Easter people and Alleluia is our song,” Saint Pope John Paul II reminds us. It’s time for us to look at the cross with joy, and see love in suffering. All Lent we strived to fast and prepare ourselves for this! Now is the time to renew the rejoicing

  1. Pilgrimages, Processions, and Pretty Statues

  2. Spring Cleaning?

  3. Eggs, of course!

  4. Feasting

  5. Flames of the Holy Spirit

  6. Water!

  7. Welcome in Spring by celebrating the Resurrection
