This year, Easter is on Sunday, April 16.

Easter baskets are nice with all the chocolate candy or special toys and the fun of hearing kids talk about where they found their baskets always brings a smile to my face.

"Today, many of us will flock to the beaches, fly kites with our children, share meals with our families and worship at our churches". She added that Easter is now more about family gatherings and dinners.

Ayokunle who recalled the agony of the disciples of Jesus Christ over his death and how their sadness turned into joy on the resurrection morning is optimistic that the future of the country would be characterised by abundance, joy and celebrations.

Becker said he will tell his parishioners that you can never understand the resurrection without the crucifixion.

This year, the Orthodox churches celebrate Easter on the same Sunday that Roman Catholics and Protestants mark the holy festival.

"It is a period when, after the 40-day Lenten period in which we deny ourselves of comfort and celebrate God's ultimate sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ for mankind".

In a statement issued Saturday by the Office of the Prime Minister, Dr Rowley said the values of faith and love celebrated at Easter can help show citizens the way forward.

This spiritual truth is the center of the Christian faith and separates Christianity from every other religion, Fowler said.

Klein said Easter Sunday is a reminder of "how truly blessed we are".

"We're trying to plant hope in people's hearts and minds, no matter what they're facing, because Christ got up, you too can get up", he said. "It is hard to conceive that agony", Diane Turcovsky said. Jesus was raised as evidence for us to confidently trust his claims that he is our Savior who died in our place, offering forgiveness and payment of sin before his Father on behalf of anyone who trusts in him.

"On this festive occasion of Easter, I am pleased to convey my cordial and warm greetings to the Christian community and to all people of goodwill in the state of Goa".
