Pasquetta: Little Easter

Posted on: under Personal

In Italy, the Easter celebration does not stop on Sunday, but continues onto Easter Monday with Pasquetta. It is a time to gather with family and friends and enjoy the warm temperatures with picnics and outdoor activities. Usually Italians escape the cities and head to the countryside to enjoy one another’s company. Some places will even hold dances, concerts or festivals for children and parents.

 

Pasquetta, also called Lunedì dell’Angelo (Angel’s Monday), commemorates Mary Magadalene’s encounter with an angel at Jesus’ tomb who told her Christ has risen.
