This celebration used to be called Holy Week and would start a week before with Easter being the last day of the celebration. Many devout Catholics still practice Holy Week, but others celebrate Easter Weekend, which is Good Friday to Easter Monday.
Easter Monday is a national observance in France so most businesses are closed. Easter Monday is typically celebrated by spending time with families.
