Today it is Easter Monday,
a day by definition dedicated to out-of-town excursions.
Perhaps this tradition dates back,
as some people say,
to another “excursion”, filled with symbolic meanings:
the one about Mary of Magdala, the mother of James and Joseph,
and Salomé at Jesus’ sepulcher
to embalm the body.
Surely it is the origin
of the definition “Monday of the Angel”:
as it was an angel to show them
the empty sepulcher
and to announce Christ’s resurrection.
Whatever the origin,
the day after Easter has become a non-working day
since after the postwar
in order to prolong the holiday period:
once completed the duties of the Sunday,
this day will be dedicated just to
continue the celebration enjoying the nature
overflowing with Spring,
organizing delicious picnics
devoted to good food.
And excellent red wine, of course!
