Have a happy and blessed Easter

We’re going to be taking a “mini-break” here as we approach the special time of Easter.

Fear not – all the Super Rugby match action will continue to be covered, but expect there to be very few other articles as those of us running the site take a few days off to spend time with our loved ones. For those of us who are Christian, Easter is, of course, a time of reflection and celebration of so many of the mysteries that are central to our faith.

We’d like to wish you all a wonderful Easter weekend and look forward to regular services being resumed on Tuesday next week!

Thanks again for all the support.

  • Happy Easter everyone.

    Enjoy the break.

    We “smuggled” some easter eggs in from Bahrain for the kids a few weeks ago so they will be enjoying Sunday morning very much ๐Ÿ™‚

  • @Ice (Comment 7) : Serious about? The Smuggling? Yip. Saudi is a Muslim country that does not allow any Christian or Pagan celebrations. Easter, Haloween, Valentine’s day, Christmas are all not celebrated or acknowledged.

  • @KSA Shark ยฉ (Comment 11) : Ja man wat weet ek tof nou…what I am trying to say is that its sad that other religions etc dont have the freedom to “practise” it or the traditions…will you get in trouble if you are cought with an easter egg in your possession??

  • @Ice (Comment 13) : If you have an egg with a rabbit on it it isn’t a problem, but don’t have anything with a Christian symbol or dare wear red on valentines day or buy red roses. Christmas trees, if you try and bring them in, get confiscated etc.

  • @KSA Shark ยฉ (Comment 17) : At least the easter bunny was able to make it so your girls have a little something on Easter Sunday. It is probably going to be even better for them because it is so unexpected.

  • @lostfish (Comment 18) : celebrating as in taking the day off, giving presents etc, but just for that reason.I know many atheist who “celebrate” just as much. Geez sometimes you guys can be so petty and pedantic…I was just asking.

  • @Ice (Comment 21) : What I think LF is saying is “they may be celebrating, but if they aren’t Christian then they ain’t celebrating Christmas” ๐Ÿ™‚

    And not that I’m going to get into a religious discussion, but an atheist celebrating Christmas is a bit of a cheek IMO. That’s like me saying I want to celebrat Eid al Fitr or some jewish holiday because the people celebrating it seem to be enjoying themselves.

    I suppose on a day when the Sharks get ripped to shreds and lose horribly isn’t a day to tease.

    After the game we went to the restaurant and M said to a waiter that we want something really good to better the mood and the waiter replies I guess you do not want fish ๐Ÿ˜†

  • To the Christian bloggers, hope you all have a blessed Easter
    To the atheists and believers in other religions, enjoy your long weekend
    And to everyone, enjoy in moderation, keep safe, and see you all (virtually speaking) on Tuesday
