Two weeks until Easter – what are Christians around the world doing to get ready?
Many are preparing for the annual celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Some are preparing for Good Friday programs – Passion Plays – Easter Contatas – Easter Sunrise services. Many are fasting and praying. Some have given up something for Christ during the time before Easter to remember what Jesus gave up for us.

Easter is the oldest annual Christian celebration.
