Happy Easter to everybody! – Tola Adenle

March 31, 2013


On April 24, 2011, I sent the message below to readers for Easter 2011.  The world remains the same even as things change, and for the land of my birth, Nigeria, things seem to be getting worse by the day.  And so, this Easter message is as apt two years ago as it remains today.  A Happy Easter to you all.   Easter 2013.


The rains bring freshness and new growth in the Tropics; Spring brings new growths, sprouting blossoms and increasing longer days in the Temperate Region, and Easter for Christians, which is celebrated throughout Christendom today, is a time of rebirth.  May this period of new beginnings bring such to you all, and may our country find a new direction to lasting peace and prosperity.



From:  Nigeria’s so-called “National” newspapers do not measure up, by Tola Adenle [The Nation on Sunday, March 23, 2008.]

In closing, I wish to share the following very interesting excerpt from a column I read in the Sunday, March 16, 2008 edition of the [USA] Albany Herald. It’s by Mandy Flynn:

“Easter is always the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox – which is March 20.  This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives.  And only the most elderly of our population have ever seen it this early.  None of us have ever, or will ever, see it a day earlier!

 The next time Easter will be this early (March 23) will be the year 2228.  The last time it was this early was 1913, so you were only around for that one if you are 95 or older.

 The next time it will be a day earlier, March 22, will be in the year 2285 – 277 years from now.  The last time it was on March 22 was 1818.  So no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier than this year…”. 

Ve-e-e-ry interesting.

He is risen indeed! A very Happy Easter to everyone.
