it doesn't feel much like Easter here

despite this being the first Christian nation in the hemisphere

and a supposedly devout Catholic country\

it doesnt feel a lot like Easter here

no bonnets  no celebrations at dawn  no hidden eggs no chocolate no bunnies no empty tomb no secrets revealed no astonishment and wonder

the city is dead

there are no church bells

of course it did not feel a lot like Christmas here either

no Kings came through town in majesty and wonder

astonishing the litte children at dawn with the gifts for the sacred child

as they do on the neighboring island of Puerto Rico
