Easter Octave

In Norway we wish each other Happy Easter already before Palm Sunday, and when we return to work after Easter Monday we consider Easter to be over. That is not how it is in the Catholic Church. Easter, the Solemnity of the Easter Feast, does not begin until Easter Day with the resurrection, and lasts for eight days. [more]
