Easter holiday rooted in Christian faith

Holy Sepulchre Holy Saturday

"Let's allow ourselves to be taken - even seized - with Easter joy".

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday in his Easter message charged Nigerians to emulate the sacrificial life Jesus Christ led while on earth by accepting to give his life in redemption for the sins of all.

It's the churches 8th annual hunt, hosted by the Knights of Columbus, who say it's a fun way to get the family together and educate children about the importance of the Easter holiday. For Western churches, it can fall anywhere from March 22 to April 25, while the Orthodox Easter dates range from April 4 to May 8.

I love remembering all the times we did that as a family and seeing the younger generation discover the satisfaction in making an egg the "perfect" color with the "perfect" design and learning how to dye an egg with three colors all looking ideal. According to the New Testament, Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday, and came back to life three days later.
