In France, Ascension Day is celebrated on a Thursday between April 30th and June 3rd. This Christian celebration happens 40 days after Easter in remembrance of the 40 days Jesus Christ spent with his disciples after his resurrection, before ascending to his God the Father, into Heaven. Before disappearing, Jesus promised his disciples he would always be with them in the form of the Holly Spirit.
