Easter Celebration

Sophia Gillespie

Easter is coming up soon on April 4th and around this time there are many fun activities you can do with your family to celebrate. Easter was originally was a Pagan holiday used to celebrate the upcoming spring, but now it is more commonly a Christian holiday about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. No matter what you believe Easter is a great time to go outside and be around your family in nice weather.

One of the most popular ways that people celebrate Easter is by decorating eggs. This is commonly done by putting food coloring into cups of vinegar and dipping the eggs in for a few seconds so that the white shell will be dyed. You can also paint or use markers to draw on them. You can take these eggs and hide them inside or outside for friends and family to find.

Another fun way that you can celebrate Easter is by having races or just being outside. You could go outside and have races and whoever wins could get a price like candy or money. If you have younger kids that you are going to be with this would be a great way for them to have fun outside in the warm spring weather.

Many people will make baskets full of candies and goods for younger kids to open and have. They can have cream eggs, peeps, and small stuffed animals inside. If you have babies you could have teething toys, baby food, or stuffed animals for them.

If you are religious getting dressed up nice and going to your church with your friends and family is a great way to have fun and celebrate. At your church, they could be doing a potluck or activities that celebrate Jesus Christ.

There are many different ways that people celebrate Easter and the coming of Spring. Spending time with family, making food, having gifts, and being outside are all great ways that you can celebrate it. If you did celebrate Easter this year make sure that you are careful and look for COVID symptoms.
