What does Eastertide mean?
Easter is also widely observed in secular (nonreligious) ways and is often associated with rebirth and the start of springtime, but Eastertide is typically used in religious contexts.
Easter always occurs on a Sunday, and the day is sometimes called Easter Sunday. In religious contexts, Easter can also refer to the Easter season or Eastertide. Sometimes, Eastertide is considered to consist of Easter Sunday and the week after. Some branches of Christianity consider Eastertide to last for 50 days, until the day known as Pentecost or Whitsunday.

How is Eastertide used in real life?
Eastertide is not all that commonly used, especially because many people celebrate Easter on a single day.
All during Eastertide we had “Easter feasts” which were potlucks at different people’s houses throughout the city about once a week for the 50 days. Usually about ten total. In five years I never missed a single one because I’m nothing if not absurdly committed.

Today is Monday of the Octave of Easter. Eight days of high celebration beginning on Easter Sunday. St. Francis of Assisi used to say that in the "feast of feasts" we should put aside fasting, because even "the walls should be rubbed with fat." Happy Eastertide to all! pic.twitter.com/tq5rTdOQog
