Easter is 50 Days

chart for Lent and Easter Seasons

Great Christian festivals begin in the evening after sunset, are celebrated through the day, and on into the next evening. But Easter begins in the evening with the Easter Vigil and is celebrated for fifty days as one long festival.

Easter is a seventh of the year, the Great Sunday of the year. The 50 days of the Early Church was set into church rule by the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD. Alleluias fill these 50 days (having fasted from Alleluia for the 40 days of Lent). The Easter (Paschal) Candle is lit throughout these fifty days. 

As a culture, we are not good at celebrating for fifty days in a row: how to celebrate 50 days of Easter?
