    I think it’s wrong this mocking of Jesus Christ during this holy season
    It should be changed the weekend before or after
    God shall not be mocked

    VG Festival needs to move from Easter to the 1st weekend in March where the Monday is the Holiday to get real enjoyment and fun...Easter has held it hostage and limiting the celebration forever..

    Sinning is bad and planning sinful ungodly activities on a weekend that is RESERVED for when we reflect on that glorious time when Jesus Christ gave His life for our sins to bring us freedom from sin, death and eternal condemnation is a disgrace. It's like they learnt nothing from the floods, hurricanes or covid. What more will God have to do to Pharoah's so that they can repent?
