Easter Monday History

Easter Monday is a Christian holiday that celebrates the death and resurrection of Christ. On Good Friday, Jesus was crucified and laid to rest in a tomb. It was then discovered on Easter Sunday that he had risen. Since the Bible does not recount what occurred on Easter Monday, most Western nations that observe the holiday celebrate it with a day off after Easter. For some, Eastern Monday is a remembrance of Christ’s death and resurrection while others use it for Easter egg hunts and polka festivals.

Easter Monday is always held the day after Easter Sunday, which the first Sunday after the Paschal full moon. Easter Monday thus always falls between March 23 and April 26.
