What are some of your Eastertide family traditions? Tell me in the comments!
Hello, Hanlin family! Since lent is almost over, I thought I'd tell you about some of my family's Easter traditions, just in case you’d like to join in spirit.
1.Let’s jump right in with the Catholic stuff. (No worries, not all of these are super Jesus-y. Not that there’s a problem with being Jesus-y.) One family tradition of ours is to attend the Triduum at our parish. Triduum is a Latin word meaning "3 days," and in the Catholic Church, the Paschal (Easter) Triduum is the period of 3 days we set aside to observe Maundy (Holy) Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday in preparation for Easter, and we spend a lot of it in Church. We've been attending the Triduum every year since I can remember, and my brother and I were baptized during one of them when I was 2 years old, and I received my first communion at another one years later.
