It’s that season of year when we commemorate Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection on the third day.
Some wonder how Jesus’ death on Friday to resurrection on Sunday makes three days. Try this; a day began in the evening, so Thursday evening to Friday evening was the first day. From Friday evening to Saturday evening was the second day. From Saturday evening to Sunday morning was during the third day, the first day of the week, as the Bible states, was when Jesus came out of the grave.
It is also the time when folks don their new frocks, or in my case whatever proper attire I have to wear, and attend church on Easter morning.
After church, it is a good time to have a few church windows snacks.
