The first Sunday after the full moon following the spring equinox is the quintessential day of Christendom, Easter. In a theocracy, like Samoa, Easter and Holy Week are not just religious events but national affairs. I have been attending numerous churches as each celebrates in their own unique way. It is my attempt to understand a little more about this place and to expose myself to Samoans in hopes they want to understand a little more about me.
