When is Lent 2024?

Every year, I eagerly await the beginning of Lent, often referred to as the 40 days before Easter. During this period which officially begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, many Christians observe a time of prayer and abstinence as they prepare for Easter Sunday. In 2024, Lent will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 14, and last until Thursday, March 28.

Lent is observed in the Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, Oriental Orthodox, Persian, United Protestant and Roman Catholic traditions.

To most, Lent means taking some extra time to practice self-reflection, repentance from sin, and forgiveness of others. But most importantly it marks a special season to take part in traditional practices such as giving up certain luxuries or depriving ourselves of certain comforts and pleasures for that forty-day period.

When is Good Friday 2024?

Good Friday 2024 is on Friday, March 29th, and is considered a day of meaningful reflection. Every year on this special Friday, Christians around the world take time to contemplate Jesus Christ and His suffering and sacrifice. It is a time for introspection and prayer, but also a time to remember the joy and ultimate victory Jesus brought to the world through his resurrection.

As we approach Easter Sunday and the Friday before, Christian communities around the world will pause to remember Jesus Christ and His ultimate sacrifice as part of their celebration. Whether you choose to take part in traditional activities such as Holy Week services and prayer vigils or focus on your own healing, this day can be a powerful moment to draw closer to Jesus Christ and your faith and work on finding a deeper understanding of its true meaning.

How is the Date for Easter Sunday Determined Every Year?

Believe it or not, Easter Sunday, the Easter date is based on the Julian Calendar and the vernal equinox moon cycles! Christians observe the Easter date during the same time as Passover, on the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring.

Easter is a wonderful time of year to celebrate tradition and enjoy spending time with our loved ones. Despite the various religious and cultural customs that can be found to celebrate the date of Easter, most agree on a few key components: family gatherings, egg hunts, and sweet treats.

No matter what you’re celebrating this year—whether it’s commemorating Jesus Christ’s resurrection or simply enjoying all of those yummy chocolate eggs—this post has everything you need to know about when Easter 2024 is going to happen!
