Easter in Spanish


Easter is arguably the most significant holiday in the Spanish-speaking world. Learn how to say Easter in Spanish – as well as a few other words that relate to the holiday.

Holy Week — which runs from Palm Sunday to Easter and includes Good Friday — is a time of celebration across all of Latin America and, of course, Spain.

However, many people in Spain do not use Feliz Pascua or Felices Pascuas (the Spanish phrase for Happy Easter) to refer to Easter at all because it is supposed to be a time of reflection or repentance.

In fact, some people in Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries use Felices Pascuas during the Christmas season. Adding to the confusion, sometimes Felices Pascuas is said at Christmastime instead of Feliz Navidad while Feliz Pascua is said during Holy Week. Or maybe not! It all depends, so ask your Spanish-speaking friends what they use before wishing them Happy Easter in Spanish.
