Easter Monday

Liturgical Year A - April 21, 2014

 

Easter Monday is a Christian holiday celebrated the next day after Easter Sunday.

Early Christians celebrated the days immediately following Easter - the most important holy day in the Christian church -by telling jokes, playing pranks, and feasting on lamb. People would add fragrant oil or perfume to the Easter water they brought home from church, and then use this water to sprinkle and bless their food, pets, gardens, and homes.

On Easter Monday morning, men would wake their wives with a spritz of the perfumed Easter water as they whispered, "May you never wither." On Easter Tuesday, women would return the favor as they awakened their husbands with a bucketful of the scented water!
