At press time, people the world over are preparing for one of the most Holy events on the Christian calendar, Easter, the commemoration of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ and its implications for society which continues to struggle with the true meaning of life.

Some Christians begin Easter with Lent, a period of fasting, when certain foods are avoided, an excellent way of ridding the body of toxins while the consumption of the traditional Easter bun and cheese has not only become a favourite in Jamaica, but in the Diaspora, as Jamaicans hold on to their traditions.

Despite the commercialisation of certain religious practices the world over, Easter Sunday in Jamaica has maintained a high degree of sacredness and it will be left to be seen whether our lottery company will forego the millions on this special day for so many Jamaicans.  Once again, the Management and Staff of your community newspaper wish for you and your family, a Holy, Happy and Safe Easter.
