The Government of Sierra Leone has declared Friday 15th April and Monday 18th April as holidays in commemoration of Easter celebrations.

This was contained in a public notice from the State House released today April 14, 2022.

Easter is one of the principal holidays, or feasts, of Christianity. It marks the Resurrection of Jesus three days after his death by crucifixion. For many Christian churches, Easter is the joyful end to the Lenten season of fasting and penitence.
