Easter at Home

Happy Easter Long Weekend!

This weekend may not feel like a long weekend since most of us have been stuck at home due to COVID-19 social distancing protocals, but Easter is definitely still worth celebrating! This is a holiday that represents new life and springtime, two things we could use these days. Here are some creative ways you can celebrate Easter from home this year:

  1.  Attend Church from Home: "Many churches have now made their services available online, either through a live stream or through a recorded podcast. If your own place of worship doesn’t have streaming capabilities, 'visit' another church instead. Furthermore, you may not be passing around the offering plate at church, but consider making an Easter-inspired donation to an organization that is meaningful to you, whether it’s your church, a local food pantry, or your own hairstylist who’s currently out of work. A little generosity goes a long way." - Southern Living
  2.  Decorate your Walkway: "Soak up the spring sunshine by spending a little time outside with sidewalk chalk. This is something that the whole family, regardless of age, can enjoy. Draw Easter symbols or write greetings and encouraging messages for your neighbors to admire." - Organized Homeschooler
  3. Host a Virtual Easter Brunch: "Easter is a time when family and friends come together to share meals and celebrate. Since throwing any kind of in-person party goes against social distancing protocol, throwing a virtual party on Zoom, Facetime, or your video chat platform of choice is a worthy alternative. Pick a time that works for all of your guests and send out the link in the form of a fun invitation – you can even coordinate with one another’s at-home brunch or dinner plans so it feels like everyone is enjoying a meal together." - Heavy
  4.  Organize an Easter Egg Hunt: "One neighborhood in New York City has created a Facebook event for their virtual hunt. Organizers are encouraging local participants to 'print out an egg image that the kids (and YOU!) can color, cut out, and display in your windows at home this weekend. Then next week leading up to Easter everyone can 'hunt' for the eggs while on walks through the neighborhood.' Not quite the same as the real thing, but at least there's no dye — or expensive eggs — to worry about." - Refinery 29

Whatever you decide to do, take a moment to celebrate springtime and your loved ones. We're all in this together!
