A Day of Joy and Laughter


In many parts of the world, many Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox countries celebrate Easter Monday as a day of “joy and laughter” with parties and picnics to celebrate Jesus’s resurrection.
It is called White Monday,
Bright Monday,
Dyngus Day,
and Emmaus Day in various countries.
It is a time for the faithful to play practical jokes on one another,
a time to sing silly songs,
a time to dance crazy steps.
It is a time for clergy and lay people to tell jokes and to have fun.
