Pascua de Resurrección
This festival is celebrated the Monday after Easter Sunday, which is the most important day of Semana Santa (Holy Week) and a holiday throughout the Valencian Community. People head to the countryside (or the Old Túria Riverbed) to celebrate Easter with a picnic traditionally including longaniza sausage and the Easter mona (a bun with a hard-boiled egg inside). The tradition, which dates from the Muslim era, states that the egg should be broken on a companion's forehead. Dancing the tarara, jumping rope, and flying a cachirulo (kite) are also must-do activities on this day.
