It Is Easter!

My parents and I went for the Holy Saturday mass last night. It was supposed to start at 10 pm and it ended around 1.20 am. So, it’s obvious we got back late and sleepy. Still, I prefer to go to church on Saturday evenings so that I don’t have to wake up early on Sunday morning to attend mass. I had the privilege of waking up at 9.30 am this morning!

When we reached the church, it was almost in complete darkness. My parents went to sit in the church while I dashed off with my friend to the front of the church to see what’s happening. Oooh, there was a kind of bonfire lit in front of the church and the sparks of fire were nice. However, I had no idea why they built such a huge fire because the smoke would only help in creating more air pollution. Perhaps they wanted Easter to be grand. But at least, they could have built a smaller fire! Therefore, less pollution!

After that, we lighted our candles by getting light from other people’s candles. The fire originated from the bonfire. So, it’s like one massive bonfire lighted everybody’s candles. My friend and I tried to find empty seats in the North Wing but as usual, all the seats were taken up. So, we ended up in the West Wing of the church.

Finally, after communion, my parents and I ‘cabut’ back home. So did many others. All wishing to be back at home, snuggled up and sleeping nicely.

Anyway, Happy Easter everybody!
