The Ministry of Interior has declared Friday 25th and Monday 28th of March as statutory public holidays to mark this year’s Easter festivities.
A statement signed by Interior Minister, Prosper Bani, on Wednesday, thus urged all Ghanaians to observe the days as such.
Most of the Easter celebrations in the past have been observed in April, but this year, it is taking place in March.
Easter is the most significant celebration on the Christian Calendar, as it is used to observe the crucifixion, death and resurrection of the savior Jesus Christ.
The day is mostly marked with church activities with some dramatizing the crucifixion, death and resurrection.
For some, it is a day to reflect on ones relationship with God, bearing in mind the pain and death Jesus Christ suffered by bearing the sins of man and to bring salvation to the world.
Others also mark the day with various outdoor activities that do not necessarily relate to the meaning of the celebration, since they view it as another Holiday to make merry.
