  • Be safe on this Easter holiday

    Easter arrives today. For Christians, it's regarded as the holiest day of the year. The holiday is held to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who arose from the dead following His death on the cross as revealed by the scriptures.

    Easter, or Resurrection Day, as many Christians refer to the holiday, is a time to celebrate.

    Unlike Christmas, which is celebrated on Dec. 25 each year by Christians shortly after the arrival of winter, Easter can fall any place on the calendar between March 22 and April 25.
