Let's get down to it, people.
Easter is a time to CELEBRATE!!!!
Like a boss.
The entire Christian faith hinges on Jesus' life, death, and resurrection so Easter is actually the highest liturgy of the year for us Catholics. Jesus accepted and defeated death and because of that, the door is open for us to have eternal life with Him.
That's no light business. It's everything.
Easter is one of those awesome celebrations that actually gets an entire octave dedicated to it. Then the season extends for a fully fifty days until Pentecost. For a brief history on how this came to be, read more here and here.
In this post, I hope to share with you a few ideas of how to get the party started this Easter Octave. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list...your creativity can come up with dozens more ideas I am sure!
So, to fully embrace the Catholic teaching on Easter we should PAR-TAY for eight. solid. days.
I don't know about you but that's a church teaching I can get behind.
Get out there and do something active and fun with friends - hiking, soccer, volleyball, or taking a walk. Enjoy the beginning of beautiful weather we start to see across the country during Spring.
Now is the time to get it and savor every last drop.
