Today is Easter Monday. Hubby is back at work, we need to do school. The day has come and gone without much fuss. It seems a shame that a holiday as important as Easter is only given one little day by most people. Liturgically it lasts a whole week, an entire octave…so why aren’t we celebrating all week?
Our Savior has risen, we are celebrating the greatest event to happen in ALL of history…and most people only recognize it as one day which is celebrated mainly by comsuming gluttonous amounts of chocolate. Not that chocolate isn’t a wonderful thing, and certainly in my opinion there is no food more fitting for celebrations.
Nonetheless, the resurrection of our Lord seems as though it should require more celebration than just the consumtion of chocolate bunnies and attending Sunday Mass.
How can we make Easter the great celebration that is should be?
