24 Mar Easter Sunday Events in Cagayan de Oro
In observance of the Holy Week, people have already set their days to be spent on places where they traditionally go with their families or friends. During those times, specifically on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, leisure establishments such as malls and even restaurants and offices are closed to commemorate this week-long celebration of self-reflect and realization of the sacrifices done by Jesus Christ for the salvation of everyone.
When Saturday comes, which is just a day before the anticipated Easter Sunday, business establishments are already back to operation. And when the Easter Sunday falls, the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, there are events that are being hosted among big establishments in the city.
