Easter.paschalcandle.512

A special candle is lit at Eastertime, known as a Paschal candle, from the Jewish word for Passover. A paschal candle is tall, long-lasting and highly decorated; it is lit for every service for the next 50 days. Easter is a season, not just one day; it takes a week of weeks (7 x 7, plus Pentecost) to celebrate Christ’s resurrection properly!
