"¡Feliz Pascua!," meaning "Happy Easter!" is a phrase you'd probably say today if you were in a Spanish-speaking area. Perhaps surprisingly, though, the word Pascua isn't used only to refer to Easter, as explained in our new feature on the meanings of Pascua.
In much of the Spanish-speaking world, Easter can surpass Christmas as a time of celebration and religious observance. If you're celebrating Easter today, you may want to take a look at these two features:
- No está aquí, pues ha resucitado (the Easter story in Spanish from the Gospel of Matthew, with translation notes).
- Cristo ha resucitado (a Spanish version of the popular hymn "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today").
