White House Issues Easter Greetings and Plans For Annual Easter Egg Roll

On Friday, President Obama extended Good Friday and Easter greetings, saying:
Michelle and I join our fellow Christians in observing Good Friday and celebrating Easter this weekend. This is a time to remember the sacrifices made for us and hold all who suffer close to our hearts. Yet it is also a time to rejoice, give thanks for the Resurrection, and unite with Christians around the world in proclaiming, "Christ has risen; He has risen indeed." We wish all who celebrate a blessed and joyful Easter.
The White House on Friday also announced (full text) the full program, activities, and talent line-up for the 2016 White House Easter Egg Roll that will be held on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday. Over 35,000 tickets have been issued for the event.
