Happy Happy Easter...

Hello fellow citizens, it's Easter Day so I'd figure I'd find some pictures to explain about and just have a little break. Schools back out Tuesday for Jersey Kids.
Christians around the world have been celebrating Easter, including in Shanghai, one of the fastest-growing Catholic communities in China.

Thousands of pilgrims gathered at St Peter's Basilica in Rome, hoping for a sign from Pope John Paul II, who has been ill...
and were rewarded when he appeared at a window.

In India, people visit family graves to mark the holiday.

In Pakistan, churches are closely guarded following attacks on Christians in the past.

Hooded penitents in Spain march in a procession to mark Easter Sunday...

and in eastern Germany, people in traditional dress dance around a fire believed to cleanse and bring wealth.

Iraqi Christian families celebrate the holiday in Baghdad.

At St Joseph's Cathedral in Bucharest, Romania, a young couple hold the Holy Light.
