Date & Time 12th Apr, 2020
Easter exhibits itself in a happier and festive mood. The Statue of the Risen Christ signifies the last act of the Passion of the Christ - Christ triumphant over death. This time all will rejoice to the commemoration that ‘Christ is risen from the Dead'. The tradition commands that children carry their Easter pastry (figolla) to be blessed by the statue of the Risen Christ. Easter is a demarcation line in the calendar of Malta's seasonal calendar as it announces the start of spring. 

Although there is a highly religious side to Easter in Malta, it is also celebrated with lots of fun. A variety of colourful and meaningful processions through the streets and even friendlier and happy atmosphere than normal (if thats possible). Much like tradition in the UK it is a time spent with family with a Sunday lunch and of course Easter Eggs for the children along with the local figolla.
