Easter Monday commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, as recounted in the New Testament of the Bible. This day is characterized by various customs and traditions, which differ significantly from one region to another. The Observance typically involves religious activities such as church services and special meals. Easter Monday can also take on a secular meaning, with a host of non-religious activities taking place.
In The Netherlands, Easter Monday (Tweede Paasdag) has been recognized as a public holiday since 1815 but started being observed as early as the Middle Ages. Predominantly a Christian nation, The Netherlands marks Easter Monday following the Church's celebration of Jesus Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday. Alongside the religious events, Easter Monday is also the culmination of Easter weekend, an extended weekend that signifies the onset of spring and the start of many spring activities.
Easter Monday in The Netherlands is celebrated in a variety of ways. Many folks attend church services, while others partake in outdoor pursuits such as cycling, hiking, or 'bloesemtochten,' a traditional walk or bike ride to observe blossoming trees. It's also the day of the annual Bloemencorso Bollenstreek flower parade, a spectacle featuring floats adorned with spring flowers. Easter Monday occurs the day after Easter Sunday, which falls on the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs on or soonest after the Spring Equinox.
