Why Do We Celebrate Easter
Easter, which is also called Resurrection Day, is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Christ. This celebration is done on the first Sunday following the sighting of the first full moon which often appears on or after the 21st of March. Though Easter is an important religious event, it is celebrated by Christians and non-Christians alike around the world.
History of Easter
When it comes to the History of Easter, we go all the way back to the early Christian community that stained eggs to signify Christ's blood and his resurrection. It became associated with Christ where the hatched egg signifies the empty tomb that Christ rose from on the third day after his crucifixion.
How To Celebrate Easter:
- Listen to a worship Playlist
- Visit or Have A Virtual Hangout With Friends and Family
- Give an Offering/Give to People
- Send Easter Cards
Since Easter is a celebratory Christian tradition, putting together a playlist to listen to for the day is not out of place. You can arrange a personal list of your favorite gospel songs or rely on streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music for already curated, season-appropriate songs to vibe to.
You can decide to use the holiday season to have a fun virtual hangout with some of your close friends and family members. This can be done using streaming platforms like ZOOM or Google Meet. If you would rather have a physical hangout, then ensure you plan properly in advance, taking the necessary safety precautions.
Everyday is a good day to give to others what you can and Easter is perfect for this campaign as it speaks of love and kindness. A cool idea for you would be to Give to your local charity collection centers like care homes, orphanages and others. You can also make a donation to a local church near you, helping them to reach out to more of the less privileged in love.
The act of Sending complimentary and greeting cards is an age-old practice. During Easter, you can also send Easter-themed cards to your friends and loved ones, telling them how you love them and sharing your well wishes.
Easter Sunday can be celebrated at your local church, or whatever date is your fellowship's designated day of worship. You can also celebrate Easter privately at your residence, alone or in the company of friends, family and other well wishers.
The goal of the celebration is to be thankful, share love and show kindness. Have a fantastic celebration!
