Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everybody! I'm a little early, but in Estonia (and for almost everybody except the Mormons) Easter starts with Good Friday (terrible name, maybe the Mormons are on to something).  Today is a national holiday.  Some might wonder how Estonians celebrate, very similar to the US, with some differences.  Estonians have egg wars where they crack the eggs together to see whose egg comes out on top.  They also have egg races, they roll them down the hill to see who is first.  We don't have peeps :(

But the reason we celebrate is the same, to remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The inspiring video below does a great job of putting things into perspective.
