  • Why don't most Christians celebrate Ascenion day?

    I have Mennonite friends that do observe Ascension day with special services and a sort of celebration. I think this is a wonderful idea. What do you say?

          Like Easter, I think people might celebrate it more if it was on a specific day.

            It really is I just don't know which day it is. It may well be on the same day each year, or like resurrection day as it changes year to year.

              Ascension Day is the fortieth day of Eastertide, with Easter Sunday being the first day of Eastertide. It is one of may feasts tied to the date of Easter, such as Ash Wednesday, Pentecost, Trinity Sunday and Corpus Christi.
