Easter Specials for the Whole Family

Easter-EggsTime is once again racing towards South Africans’ favourite time of year – the Easter weekend, where we get a 4 day weekend without having to apply for leave. Easter is a Christian holiday which only applies to roughly 74% of the population, but we all revel in the time off all the same, and those who can afford to, take advantage of the Easter specials around town.
