Don't Let the Pandemic Ruin Your Easter Fun—Here's How You Can Still Celebrate
Easter might look a little different this year. Sure, it still falls on Sunday, April 4, as scheduled, but with physical or social distancing recommendations still in place and coronavirus vaccine distribution still in progress, family Easter games and Easter dinner (not to mention your Easter church service, if you typically attend) won't look the same as they have in years past.
The holiday's roots remain the same, but many classic Easter activities—including Easter egg coloring—are likely to be affected by the space constraints of your home, the crafting supplies you have on hand from the last so-called normal Easter in 2019, and how much energy you and your household have for another at-home holiday celebration. While we have vaccines (and some people in your household might have been vaccinated by now) and you might be tempted to celebrate Easter like you used to, it's unlikely that everyone in your circle will be fully vaccinated by April 4, so some precautions are still necessary for everyone's safety.
This may not be the year of new Easter outfits for the whole family or your most creative Easter egg designs yet, but you can still celebrate. Here are six ideas for celebrating Easter at home this year. Sure, it may not be what you're used to, but you and your family will be all the safer for it.
