You know it’s Bright Week when….

You know it’s Bright Week when. . . .

-on Wednesday, a normal fast day, you find yourself ordering beef tacos and getting giddy about it
-you find yourself taking every opportunity to eat meat every day of the week, after all this isn’t a week like any other
-several times you find yourself humming “The Angel Cried”
-every Orthodox you know constantly greets you with “Christ is Risen!”
-you open your refrigerator and see your red Paschal egg
-you feel a bit lighter than the week before, for Lent is over, and you feel the joy of the resurrection
-you’ve traded the prayer of St. Ephream with the thrice prayer: “Christ is risen from the dead trampling down death by death and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!”

Happy Bright Week!  The Darkness has fled, for Christ has had victory!
