Holy Week: from Palm Sunday to Easter

Palm Sunday   Mon-Thu   Good Friday   Holy Saturday   Great Vigil   Easter Day

Holy Saturday

Decorate and/or dye eggs. Draw on undyed eggs with dark crayons, and then dye them. Or lay pieces of colored tissue paper on the eggs, tap them with a water-wet paint brush, let them dry, and remove the papers. Or dye with natural dyes: while boiling the eggs with a dash of vinegar, add red onion skins... or beet pieces... or yellow onion skins.

Decorate a new white pillar candle with flowers, jewel-look decorations, or symbols cut from colored beeswax, for your Easter at home.

Perhaps set the table for tomorrow's Easter dinner. Take naps if you're going to attend an Easter vigil tonight.

If you aren't attending an Easter vigil, after dark light your decorated candle together and enjoy a special Easter bread as a first taste of the festivity of Easter.

Before bed on Holy Saturday night, or on Easter morning, set out festive Easter decorations.
