Easter Holidays in Malta

Easter is the most important feast in the calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. Maltese look forward to Easter with great enthusiasm as it brings various traditions back to life. On Maundy Thursday it’s a custom that Maltese visit churches and Last Supper displays. Good Friday is a Holy Day for Catholics, where Christians fast and make sacrifices. On Good Friday at 3pm, the time when Jesus died, a special mass is celebrated in churches around the island. After Mass, solemn processions are held in many towns showcasing life-size statues depicting scenes from the passion of Christ and adults and children wear costumes. Many tourists from all over the world visit our Maltese Island at this time of year to see our famous processions.

Easter Sunday is a day of rejoicing and celebration starting with a procession of the risen Christ to remind us that Jesus rose up from the death. At the end of these famous processions, men who are carrying the statue on their shoulders, usually run the steps leading to the Church as a reminder of Christ’s Resurrection. Children eat Easter eggs and “figolla”, an almond-based Maltese dessert traditionally prepared in time for Easter. This and more can be celebrated in Malta during your Easter Holidays.
