What's on this Easter & Autumn in Johannesburg

"Will you buy an Easter egg mom?" Wow- is it that time of the year again? Since the lockdown stole Easter last year we are so happy to have an opportunity to spend time with loved ones again and remember this special occasion. South Africans never disappoint and we see the rise of virtual Easter egg hunts and gamification and other ways to make your hunting experience a safe and fair one.

This autumn we further celebrate public school holidays and Mother's Day. Make mom's day special by planning a "time out" date for her or a fun activity together.

If you or your business plan a public Easter egg hunt, Mother's day event or holiday activity, be sure to contact us so we can share the word!

Did you know?

Easter, also called Pascha (Aramaic, Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a Christian festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover (Hebrew: פֶּסַח Pesach, Aramaic: פָּסחָא Pascha) by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In most European languages the feast is called by the words for Passover in those languages, and in the older English versions of the Bible, the term Easter was the term used to translate Passover.
