EASTER SEASON

What is the Easter Season?

Eastertide, also known as the Easter Season, is the season in the liturgical year of Christianity that focuses on celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In the Christian church year, the two major cycles of seasons, Christmas and Easter, are far more than a single day of observance.  Like Christmas, Easter itself is a period of time rather than just a day.  It is a 50 day period that begins at sunset on the eve of Easter and ends on Pentecost, the day we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Easter season is more than just an extended celebration of the resurrection of Jesus.  This season gives us time to rejoice and experience what it means when we say Christ is risen.  It's the season when we remember our baptisms.  As 'Easter people,' we celebrate and ponder the birth of the Church and gifts of the spirit (Pentecost), and how we are to live as faithful disciples of Christ.

The Easter season is a season of joy.  Each Sunday of the season is treated as a Sunday of Easter.  These above all others are the days for the singing of the Alleluia!

"Every morning is Easter morning from now on! Every day's resurrection day, the past is over and gone!  Every morning is Easter morning from now on!

Daily news is so bad it seems the Good News seldom gets heard, get it straight from the Easter People!  God's in charge spread the word!

Every morning is Easter morning from now on! Every day's resurrection day, the past is over and gone!  Every morning is Easter morning from now on!"
