SEASON OF LENT IN CHRISTIAN CHURCH FROM MARCH TO APRIL  

 The season of Lent in Christian churches around the world begin with service on Ach Wednesday (Kwisiga ivu in our mother tongue)  to April.  Then month of April is annually a good time as christian whereby we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord (Jesus Christ) on Easter Sunday, this year it will be on 24 April 2011.  As Christian we believe that Jesus Christ came back to life, or was raised from dead, three days after his death on the cross.    But here in Europe I realised that there are some thing as confusion regarding of  what Easte Sunday is all about??  For some Easter Sunday it’s about the Easter Bunny, colorefully decorated Easter eggs, Easter eggs hunts,… whereas in Ireland a young Lamb is one of the symbole of Easter.   By the way most people understand that Easter sunday has some thing to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the christian faith, Easter come to mean the celebration of the resurrection of Christ.  It is the oldest christian holiday and the most important day of the church year because of the signification of the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the events upon which christianity is based. Easter Sunday is preceded  by the season of Lent 40 days periode of fasting and repentance in Holy week and followed by a 50 day Easter.
