Happy Easter! Posted on 20 Mar 00:00

Happy Easter
Easter is a Christian holiday and festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion at Calvary.

The festival is also known as Easter Day, Easter Sunday, Resurrection Day and Resurrection Sunday.

The Festival is commemorated in two parts the first is the religious part and the second is the Feasting part.

Both center around doing the right thing and sharing this special time with our loved ones … it is a time to serve those we love for the spirit of Easter … for God is love.
