Low Sunday

The Sunday following the "high" feast of Easter, this is also known as Quasimodo Sunday, Close Sunday, or Low Easterday. "Low" probably refers to the lack of high ritual used on Easter, and not to the low attendance usual on this day. The name Quasimodo Sunday comes from the Introit of the mass which is said on this day. In Latin it begins with the phrase Quasi modo geniti infantes—"As newborn babes...." The famous character Quasimodo in Victor Hugo's novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, is said to have been found abandoned on this day, which marks the close of Easter week. More...

Today it's Easter in the countries which belong to the Eastern Orthodox Church. They are going to have Quasimodo Sunday in a weeks time.
