7 Fun Ways to Celebrate Easter

Easter is celebrated as a joyous occasion and the Sunday prior is called Palm Sunday which marks the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem. Various churches begin the celebration in the late hours of Saturday through a religious service called Easter Vigil. Non–religious celebrations include the tradition of Easter eggs, which represent fertility and birth, and Easter bunny which delivers chocolates and sweets to kids on Sunday morning.    

For Christians, the Easter season is the best time of the year when friends and family come together to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This day is also the perfect opportunity to show your friends how much you appreciate their friendship and how much they mean to you.

Below are 7 fun ways to mark this joyous holiday:

Attend a Church Service

With Easter being an important Christian holiday, there is an abundance of church services you can attend to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. You could also gather around the computer and join in with virtual Easter church services streamed live. Some churches even have youth-focused services and activities to celebrate the holiday.

Volunteer

Homeless shelters and soup kitchens often serve Easter dinner on the holiday. Take an opportunity to show your children love and caring in action by heading to a soup kitchen to serve others. You may find that your children get a lot of fulfillment from giving.

Take a hike with family or friends

Easter often takes place as the weather starts to get warmer. If you live in an area where Easter marks the start of spring, take advantage of the warm weather to celebrate the day. Spend Easter Sunday taking a long walk or hike along a local nature trail.

If you don’t live near a wooded area, you can simply take a walk through your neighborhood with family and friends. For example, instead of driving to your favorite ice cream place, walk or bike there.

Have an Easter brunch

Many people love early afternoon brunches on Easter. You can go out to a restaurant that has an Easter brunch special. You can also have family or friends over for an Easter-themed meal. Due to the connection with eggs, deviled eggs or scrambled eggs can be a good thematic fit for your Easter meals.

Plant something to celebrate new life.

As Easter falls during the spring in many parts of the world, it is seen as a celebration of life. Stop by a local greenhouse and pick up some seeds. Plant them in your yard or a pot in your home. Growing some new flowers or other plants can help you commemorate Easter by welcoming spring.

Spend time with family and friends.

Holidays are great opportunities for us to spend time with our loved ones, enjoying the time together. Most people have the day off on Easter, so take advantage of that time. Make some plans with your loved ones to make your Easter together a great one.

For example, you and a group of friends could get together for dinner on Easter Sunday.

Take photos each year to preserve memories.

Photos can be a fun way to remember the holiday. While having brunch, dinner, or engaging in other activities, bring a camera. Take some great photos to help you remember your Easter memories for years to come.

CONCLUSION

Easter is a holiday that holds special religious and historical significance for people of the Christian faith. That element is important to many; however, it doesn’t mean that those who aren’t as religious can’t enjoy the cultural and seasonal joys of the holiday as well.

Reading about different Easter celebrations can provide historical context while taking part in different activities can help you create family traditions of your own. No matter what you decide to do to celebrate, the most important part is spending quality time with your family, and respectfully celebrating and honoring what Easter represents.
