David Burt, the Premier, called on Bermudians to reconnect with local traditions today as he delivered his Easter message.

Mr Burt said: “Easter is a time of renewed hope and optimism firmly rooted in the Christian tradition.

“As Bermudians we look forward to the warmer weather of spring and summer, and see that promise of new life in our children and families as we enjoy those local traditions that have come to be a part of this celebration.

“This weekend is an opportunity for families and friends to reconnect around timeless customs that define Bermudian culture: making beautiful tissue paper kites and getting them as high as possible; playing marbles and jacks; skipping and participating in games of hop scotch while sampling a variety of hot cross buns and fishcakes to determine whose are the best.

“We remember those who have recently lost loved ones and embrace them with extra love and care.

“The true meaning of Easter is to be found in the resurrection of Jesus the Christ and in Bermuda many rise early on Easter morning to greet a new day with worship services filled with that same spirit of hope and renewal experienced by the earliest Christians.

“However you spend this Easter, please be extra careful while driving and riding around Bermuda.

“From my wife Kristin and our family to yours, I wish you a happy and safe Easter holiday.”
