Happy Ascension Day: How is it Celebrated?

On the 40th day of Easter, Ascension Day is officially observed on a Thursday (or 39 days after Easter Sunday). Ascension Day is a leisure day for all workers in nations where it is a national holiday. Because the day coincides with a Thursday, many individuals take a very long weekend off. The Friday after Thanksgiving is usually quiet, especially in stores and offices. Even though Christianity is a minority faith in Indonesia, Ascension Day is observed as a national holiday, with special ceremonies held in churches around the country.

Since many Protestant men enjoy herrenpartien “outings” on this day, Ascension Day is also known as Father’s Day in Germany. Many people in Sweden wake up at 3 or 4 a.m. to listen to the birds sing at sunrise. A cuckoo sighted from the east direction is considered lucky. Gökotta, or “early cuckoo morning,” is the name for these excursions.

Ascension Day is related to a variety of water celebrations in England, spanning from Well Wanting to dress in Derbyshire to the Plantation of the “Penny Hedge” in Whitby, a small Yorkshire hamlet. “Beating the boundaries” is another tradition. Boys were beaten with willow twigs as they were dragged along parish borders in the old days. Not just to cleanse them of wickedness, but also to instruct them about the boundaries of their parish. People in the community walk around their farm, influence extends, ecclesiastical, or civil bounds in contemporary days, halting as they pass specific trees, walls, and bushes that designate the boundary’s extent to exclaim, pray, and ritualistically ‘beat’ specific features with sticks.
