Happy Easter - All 50 Days

HOW MANY DAYS DOES THE EASTER SEASON LAST?

Easter season doesn't end after the Octave of Easter. The Easter season continues on for 50 days, through the Ascension of Our Lord to Pentecost Sunday, seven full weeks after Easter Sunday!

Just as we count both Easter Sunday and Divine Mercy Sunday in the Octave of Easter, so, too, we count both Easter Sunday and Pentecost Sunday in the 50 days of the Easter Season.

You can read all about Easter, including its history, practice, how the date of Easter is calculated, what holidays fall during the Easter season, and much more in Easter 101: Everything You Need to Know About Easter in the Catholic Church.

So even after Easter Sunday has passed, and the Octave of Easter has passed, keep on celebrating and wishing your friends A HAPPY EASTER—ALL 50 DAYS!
