Easter 2020 in Belize

- Advertisement -

Easter in Belize is usually a chance to enjoy sun, sea, good food, travel, and cool drinks. However, Easter 2020 is one that no one in Belize will soon forget. With the confirmation of the first case of the Corona virus (COVID-19) in Belize in early March, a time that’s usually highly anticipated in Belize quickly became a period of reflection and preparation.

Everyone who’s been in Belize for Easter knows that the months of March and April in Belize are some of the busiest months for the cruise tourism industry and a time enjoyed by everyone with cool sea breezes and lots of travel in-country and to neighboring Mexican provinces. Easter to Belizeans is a welcome break as one of the year’s first extended weekends (usually 4 days long) so most take advantage of the days to travel to remote locations, and with Belize being a majority Christian country, to celebrate the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Belizeans are accustomed to hot cross buns made fresh on Holy Thursday, fried fish on Good Friday, the Cross Country Cycling Classic on Holy Saturday, and Church followed by the distribution of Easter baskets and annual Easter egg hunts on Easter Sunday for the kids.

Though much traveling cannot be done for Easter 2020 and the annual cycling classic along with all other annual events (including physically attending church) have been cancelled, this should be a time of reflection and praise for good health and all the little things we have that so many others around the world do not. Let us be thankful for a peaceful country, food on our table, clothes on our backs, good health, comfort, love, happiness, knowledge, protection, and family.

Let us not forget the reason we celebrate the Lenten season and remember why we are able to look forward to another Easter in Belize. Have a safe and blessed Easter weekend!
