6 ways to celebrate Easter amidst Coronavirus lock-down
So, let’s make the most of this Easter and make it a memorable day which we can cherish later. Here are a few ideas on how you can make this day super interesting.
- Involve grandparents while ensuring their safety
As we all know that our grandparents fall in the category most at risk of the virus, let’s keep them safe by meeting them through Zoom and dropping an Easter gift basket outside their house as an extra special surprise.
- Easter egg hunts
What’s an Easter without an egg hunt? Right?
Organize an in house egg hunt with your kids and make it more fun by being a part of it yourself also. It would be a great bonding time for the family. And we really like this Easter message on this video from the prime minister of New Zealand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHOa4TtkOeU
- Meals on Zoom
Set up your table with fancy cutlery, fresh flowers, and a laptop. Invite your family and friends to join you in this one of a kind lunch. Let your dining area echo with the voice of laughter.
- Let the kids be in control of decorations
By doing this you are letting your kids feel in control as well as have a great time by doing so. Just remember to supervise, in case you have toddlers in your house, be sure to baby proof all the corners and cover all the electrical outlets to avoid any unpleasant accidents.
- Virtual Easter Services
Make sure to check in on your church regarding their virtual service option and join in your fellow Christians in the service. This will also be a great way to get together to pray for this pandemic to end.
- Make your own traditions
2020 has been unlike any year that we have ever experienced. Take this opportunity to invent a new tradition that is special to your family. The tradition will be recalled as the one that began in times when the earth stood still.
This year has brought in many unpleasant surprises, let’s hope and pray for this chaos to be over and let’s make the most of everything that we can because if this year teaches anything, it is that nothing is ever guaranteed.
