How will the Easter story come alive for you? It never ceases to amaze me how God can reveal a distinct and personal truth to each one of us during Holy Week. However, perhaps we need to pause and ponder to discover what it is. I remember celebrating Easter with my family when I was young it used to be Easter eggs and bunnies and the excitement started a week before. No wonder, it’s still the same. The feeling of Easter approaching gets me in the thought process of reviving and renewal. It is like a new beginning with no regrets. I love baking confectionery items and coloring the eggs.
These historic Easter customs are the ideal way to commemorate the occasion, from egg rolls to church visits to wonderful delicacies to create. Those who observe the holiday frequently attend a church service before spending the day with family and friends, dining on wonderful cuisine and embracing customs.
There are still exciting ways to celebrate Easter if you aren’t ready to join public activities or huge crowds. Here are some suggestions for making Easter memorable for your family while staying at home.
- On Good Friday and Easter Sunday, go to Virtual Church or Mass. Many churches, including Easter and Good Friday services, provide live-streaming and online resources.
- Make something with your hands. Find imaginative Easter-themed décor and lovely DIY treat bags.
- Organize an Easter Baking Contest. You could prepare cupcakes and let everyone decorate their own even if you don’t want to make it a competition. The idea is to maintain certain old activities while also rethinking them to meet modern conditions.
- Organize a “Easter Egg Hunt” in your neighborhood. Make Easter eggs out of pebbles and hide them along the walkway for friends and neighbors to uncover.
- Organize an Easter Fashion Show. Dress up in Easter bonnets, sparkly shoes, and lacey gowns and put on a fashion show at home. Play runway music, make a stance for the cameras, and capture the moment on film to share with friends and family!
- Make an Easter Brunch Virtual. Make plans to FaceTime or Skype with out-of-town relatives and have a festive dinner together. Although it isn’t the same as being in the same room, family may still enjoy “togetherness” and discussion while enjoying their favorite foods.
