How to Celebrate Easter

by | May 6, 2015 | Religion Featured

Easter is a holiday that is enjoyed by many for a variety of different reasons. For some, it’s a symbol of their savior’s return. For others, it’s a time to give back or to spend with family and friends. People all over the world celebrate Easter in different ways, and there’s no right or wrong way to do it. No matter if you’re a religious person or not, there are a variety of different ways you can celebrate Easter. The following are just a few suggestions.

Easter Mass

Depending on your preference and your religious beliefs, you may want to spend Easter Sunday attending Easter mass. Most churches and other religious organizations will have a special mass for Easter Sunday. Some of these masses may be longer than a traditional Sunday mass, and they may also fill up more quickly. Some religious organizations will also hold other special events for Easter Sunday, whether on that day or on the days leading up to it, such as Palm Sunday or Good Friday. Be sure to check with your local religious organization to determine what types of mass they’re offering and what their schedules are so you can plan accordingly.

Easter Brunch

One of the most popular ways to celebrate Easter is to enjoy Easter brunch. Most of the time, people will go out for Easter brunch after Easter mass. Because this is a popular way to celebrate, it’s a good idea for you and your family to make reservations early to ensure that you have a place to eat and enjoy one another. If you’re out of luck getting in, stock up on your own brunch-related items and host Easter brunch at your home instead. You’ll still get to enjoy family, and you won’t have to deal with the public.

Easter Bunny

If you have small children, the Easter Bunny is a big hit. You can take them to see the Easter Bunny at a variety of different retail venues and get their picture. You can also spend Easter morning opening their baskets from the Easter Bunny too. Some parents use Easter as another Christmas and give their children a large variety of gifts while others keep it simpler. Some opt for Christian and Jewish gift ideas to keep in the spirit of Easter without turning it into a retail holiday. Again, you will need to determine the right option for your family, and go from there.

Easter Egg Hunt

Along with mass, and brunch, and the Easter Bunny, another popular way to celebrate Easter is by dying Easter Eggs and going for an Easter Egg hunt. After your children are done coloring eggs, and after they’ve dried, hide them either around your home or in your yard, and then have your children search for them. If you opt for plastic eggs, be sure to put some nice treats inside to make the event extra special. Sit back and let your children hunt around for the eggs. As a side note, though, if you’re going to use real eggs, be sure you remember exactly where you put them, otherwise you could end up with a lost egg that will rot and smell as the days go on.
