Easter MondayDyngus Day
The day after Easter, or Easter Monday, is celebrated as a holiday in some largely Christian cultures, especially Roman Catholic cultures. Easter Monday in the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar is the second day of the octave of Easter Week.
Events on this day include egg rolling competitions (see White House Easter Egg Roll) and dousing other people with water, which traditionally had been blessed with holy water the day before at Easter Sunday Mass and carried home to bless the house and food.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Easter Monday is known as Bright Monday or Renewal Monday. Church services are he same as those on Easter Sunday, except that the hymns from the Octoechos are in Tone Two. It is customary to have a Crucession (procession headed by a cross) either after Paschal Matins or after the Paschal Divine Liturgy.
