Happy Easter from Sharksworld

Happy Easter to all. Here’s what wikipedia tells us about this festival:

Easter, also called Pascha, is the most important religious feast in the Christian liturgical year. It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, which Christians believe occurred on the third day after his crucifixion around AD 33. Many non-religious cultural elements have become part of the holiday, and those aspects are often celebrated by many Christians and non-Christians alike.

Easter also refers to the season of the church year called Eastertide or the Easter Season. Traditionally the Easter Season lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day but now officially lasts for the fifty days until Pentecost. The first week of the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter.

Easter is termed a moveable feast because it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. Easter falls at some point between late March and late April each year (early April to early May in Eastern Christianity), following the cycle of the moon. After several centuries of disagreement, all churches accepted the computation of the Alexandrian Church (now the Coptic Church) that Easter is the first Sunday after the first fourteenth day of the moon (the Paschal Full Moon) that is on or after March 21 (the ecclesiastical spring, or vernal, equinox).

I will be flying back to South Africa this evening, so will be a little bit more scarce in the coming week than I usually am. Rest assured that the team here will ensure that the latest news is brought to you fresh of whatever presses we can find!

Any of you around Joburg or Pretoria, please do let me know if you’d be keen to get together for lunch or a few drinks sometime in the next week? You should all know my email address by now 😉

Have a good one and thanks for all your support.

Rob

  • Hello there Ice!

    I see things are rather quiet here. I hope that you are having a relaxed start to the weekend. I personally am planning on relaxing the entire time – not going anywhere at all.

    Happy days.

    Eddie Andrews (born 18 March 1977 in Cape Town, South Africa) is a South African rugby union footballer. His usual position is at prop, and he has played for the Springboks. He plays for the Stormers in the international Super 14.

    Andrews made his provincial debut for Western Province against Eastern Province in the Currie Cup in 2000. Three seasons later he made his Super 12 debut for the Stormers against the Queensland Reds.

    Andrews made his international debut for South Africa on Saturday, the 12th June 2004 in Bloemfontein in a match against Ireland. South Africa won the match 31 points to 17. He also played in the subsequent match against the Irish in Cape Town which was also won by South Africa 25 to 17. He was also a reserve in the 53 to 18 win over Wales in Pretoria.

    He went on to play against the Pacific Islanders team in Gosford before he was included in the Springboks’ 2004 Tri Nations series squad. He played four tests during the series, two tests against the All Blacks and the Wallabies. The Springboks went on to win the Tri Nations that year. He earned another three caps during the end of year tests in the northern hemisphere.

    He next played for South Africa on 18th June 2005 in a 30-all draw against France in Durban, as well as playing in subsequent matches against Australia, and then against the All Blacks in the 2005 Tri Nations series. He earned another two caps at the end of the year, playing Argentina in Buenos Aires and France in Paris.

    He played in the three 2006 mid-year rugby tests, in the two wins against Scotland and the loss to France. He was then named in the Springboks’ 2006 Tri Nations series squad.
