The date of Easter changes each year based on the centuries-old calculations that determine the Christian Ecclesiastical Calendar. This means that the date of Easter Sunday can be anytime between 22 March and 25 April.

In Chad, around a third of the population are Christian, most of them living in the southern and western portions of the country, and Easter is a holiday much anticipated by believers.

On Easter Sunday, there will be special programs and services held at churches of all denominations and at missions centres as well. At some churches, a big lunch and fellowship time takes place right after the service. On Easter Monday, people don’t do much. They just relax at home, and many businesses remain closed until Tuesday.
