Easter day runs for eight days: the Octave of Easter.
Are you familiar with this? We spend so much time preparing our hearts in Lent — attention to detail, changing daily routines, restricting ourselves. Now that we celebrate the Resurrection, how are we feasting?
Here are some fun ideas for celebrating this eight day feast regally – by Jane Korvemaker at https://catholicmom.com/ Although we have some challenges this year due to the coronavirus – 4 of these ideas still work! Enjoy!
1. Plan a feast
Plan a feast for the remainder of dinners for the Octave. One of my favorite years, we had an eight-day Mexican food fiesta. All our favorites jazzed up a notch (nachos with bacon and caramelized onions? Yes, please!) Jazz up the table with candles or sparklers!
2. Easter-cize your Grace
