It’s the Festival we have been waiting for – EASTER!


‘… Let the weak say – I am strong, let the poor say – I am rich, let the blind say – I can see …

Hosanna hosanna to the lamb that was slain, hosanna hosanna Jesus Christ has rose again…’

This is one of the songs that will be sang in churches across the world, celebrating the death and risen of Christ our Lord.

Christ died on Friday and resurrected on the third day (Sunday), this is the believe behind Easter celebration.

Easter is celebrated among christians; it is a festival that we all look unto for vacation and festivities from the beginning of the year.

There are decorations everywhere, and all you see is beauty, there are decoration of eggs, chocolates, flags, you name it. Different types of foods, and snacks. Gifts and cards are exchanged. Hot cros buns are traditionally eaten on fridays in some countries, boiled egg, roast lambs, and simnel cakes are eaten at these period. In the UK, Sunrise service is observed on Easter Sunday’s.

To get the total Easter history, google Easter and get all the scope.

NIGERIA – Easter is one of the cherished and celebrated Christian festivals. It is celebrated differently in different countries and traditions.

Growing up – we were usually on holidays from schools during this period, always happy for the good foods, drinks, cloths, and visitation for friends and families.

We celebrate Easter Fridays, Easter Sundays, and Easter Mondays.

Most people spend these days in the house of God, and get back home on Sunday for the festivities.

Some churches go to where they call the Mountains to sing and dance with trumpets and different music instrument ‘waiting on the lord’. Though I must say that am not sure while they go there at all, but what counts is they are worshiping God. While some spend these days at the clubs partying.

There is always so much noise that I always bury myself in my closet.

Grown up and independent – people are happy to get away from work to be with friend and families. I never heard of Easter eggs, egg hunt or Easter bunny while growing up, but things have changed and these Easter traditions have been included in the Easter activities in Nigeria.

While some people are on vacation to get some rest before going back to work, some are busy spending their savings to have a big party, and end up going back to work exhausted.

Many activities would e on the TV and every nook and cranny, I am not anti-Easter but, I will basically be eating, listening to music, singing along, watching films, and would sleep for at least 15 hours in one of these days, yes I love to sleep a lot.

This is how I will celebrate my Eater holidays.

Happy EASTER dear readers and show love to the world.
