The Easter Triduum is, in my opinion, the three most special days of the whole year. A triduum is a 3 day period of prayer. The Easter Triduum recalls the three days that Christ spent in the tomb from Good Friday to Easter Sunday.
In our home this year we did some special activities that helped us focus more on the events of these three days. Some of these are old traditions in our family, some are new.
Officially, the Triduum begins on Holy Thursday evening, but we had our special meal at lunch time.
I sent the little three kids outside while I set the table and so I could surprise them with a special symbolic lunch. Each food had a special meaning (all ideas are from Shower of Roses). Everything was so easy to put together and I didn’t even do any baking!
It was a beautiful meal and we enjoyed it immensely. We will definitely be doing this again next year.
