Puerto Vallarta Easter (a.k.a Semana Santa)

Published on

Why is Easter in March 2024?
When is Easter Sunday 2024? The Lent season concludes on Easter Sunday, which in 2024 is March 31. Easter moves around on the calendar from year to year because the date of the holiday is determined as the Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.

Easter week is known as Semana Santa.

What is Easter Week Looks like in Puerto Vallarta?

What dates are Good Friday and Easter Monday in 2024?
While all the adults only get two days off work on Good Friday (29th March) and Easter Monday (1st April), most of the nation’s children can get a full two weeks off school. Exact term dates alternate by school and region, but the Easter holidays in 2024 will likely fall between 23rd March – 6th April.

How long is holy week 2024?
The final week of Lent, or the season leading up to Easter, is Holy Week 2024. It starts on March 24th, Palm Sunday, and finishes on March 30th, Holy Saturday. Christians remember Jesus Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection during Easter week by participating in a variety of liturgies and devotions.

Why is Passover so late in 2024?
In 2024, Passover will begin on April 22 and end on April 30. This also happens to be a Jewish leap year. Leap years are built into the lunar calendar because the lunar year is about 11 days shorter than the solar year, so an extra month is added to certain years to make up the difference.

Why are Easter and Passover different in 2024?
That cycle takes about 29½ days, making a lunar year about 12 days shorter than a solar year (tracked by the calendar on your wall). That means Easter and Passover fall on different dates each year.

Why do we fast 40 days before Easter?
“Those 40 days are set aside as a time of reflection, repentance and spiritual growth. 40 days are observed to represent the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert where he fasted and was tempted by the devil. At the end of Jesus’ 40 days, this was when he started his public ministry.”
