5 Ways to Celebrate Easter During Social Distancing

Holidays are the time for families and friends to gather to observe traditions, enjoy favorite recipes, and decide who’s going to do the dishes.

In the coming days, that will be challenging, but people are finding ways to make it work this year – to somehow stay connected during this time of social distancing and restricted gatherings. Here are 5 things you can do to enjoy the celebration at home!

Decorate Anyway

Even if you don’t have family and friends coming over for a big Easter meal creating the same sort of atmosphere can go a long way in terms of helping to get you in the holiday spirit. Dig out your spring wreath, your Easter bunnies and maybe some fresh daffodils or tulips from your yard to brighten your home.

Order a Special Brunch

Going out for Easter brunch is something that so many families will, unfortunately, miss out on this year. But ordering a special brunch spread from a local restaurant is a great way to celebrate at home. It also happens to be a wonderful way to support local businesses!

Have an Indoor Easter Egg Hunt

Who said an Easter egg hunt has to take place outdoors? Bring the fun into your home with an indoor Easter egg hunt! For an exciting room-to-room hunt, hide your eggs in clever spots: tucked inside coat pockets, tissue boxes, behind books on the shelf, in napkins on the kitchen table, and shoes by the door.

Get Creative with Video Chatting

Schedule a video chat with family members. You can use these services to socialize, watch an egg hunt or even eat your holiday meal “together.” Have each family set up a laptop at the table, while dining simultaneously. 

Watch an Easter Movie or Two

Festive easter movies are for grownups and kids and everyone in between and will get you in the holiday spirit. Grab a box of Peeps and enjoy your favorite Easter flicks!
