Knowing a few Easter greetings may come in handy if you’re family, or friends or colleagues celebrate the religious holiday.
As young children, we all remember going to church on Easter in our Sunday finest. Dad would wear a suit and tie and Mom would wear a hat. We’d hold hands walking up the steps of the church and wave at our family and friends. After church, we would go home and search for Easter eggs in the backyard. Then, we would dive into the candy and toys in our own personal Easter baskets.
In the Christian faith, Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But Easter time is also a celebration of the arrival, or pending arrival, of Spring.
There is the smell of flowers in the air and bright colors are replacing the dull browns and grays of winter. We’ve put together a list of Easter Greetings and Wishes to help you when the day and week arrive. These wishes may even give you some ideas for expressing your own, personal Easter messages.
1.) Easter symbolizes the renewal of life, may this feeling of a new beginning stay with you all year long.

When is Easter 2020?
Easter falls on Sunday, April 12, 2020, this year. Whereas certain holidays have fixed dates — Valentine’s Day is always February 14, and Christmas is always December 25 — Easter can fall on any Sunday between March 22 and April 25.
In 2020, Good Friday falls on April 10, and Easter Monday falls on April 13.
Is Easter Monday a bank holiday?

Can I say, “Happy Easter?”
Easter is the highest holiday in most Christian churches as it recognizes Jesus Christ’s resurrection. The word “happy” is very appropriate as Jesus’ resurrection is a cause for celebration.
Can I say, “Happy Good Friday?”
Good Friday is the remembrance day of when Jesus died on the cross. So, the word “happy” doesn’t work well. Nowadays, Good Friday is associated with fasting, prayer, and penance. So, we’d suggest saving your “happy wishes” for Easter Sunday.
Why do we say, “Happy Easter?”
For Christians, Jesus’ resurrection is the most important act of the Bible. As such, this is a very happy occasion. Jesus rose from the dead to start his exalted life as Christ and Lord.
How long is Lent?
Lent is 40 days long beginning with Ash Wednesday. It recognizes the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the desert. The Tuesday before Ash Wednesday is called Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday. On Mardi Gras, many folks will eat fatty and rich foods prior to fasting during the Lenten season.
Why is it called Lent?
Lent is derived from the term “lengthen.” As Lent is observed in the Spring, the days are beginning to get longer or lengthen.
When is Ash Wednesday 2020?
Ash Wednesday is Wednesday, February 26, 2020. Thus, Tuesday, February 25 is Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday). Ash Wednesday is the start of the Easter season as Lent begins on this day.
