What Are You Going To Do On Easter Day?

Easter always falls on a Sunday and many wonder what they are going to do on that day. Easter began as a religious holiday. Christians celebrate Easter day because that's the day that Jesus rose from the grave. However, non-religious people celebrate Easter day as well. They use this day to get together with family and friends and they celebrate just being alive, they celebrate being with the ones they love and they give each other candy and Easter eggs. Whatever your reasons, you should plan to do something on Easter day. If you need suggestions, just ask your friends and family what they're doing that day.

Restaurants Are Very Busy That Day

If you're like most people, you are going to get together with family and friends on Easter day and you're going to go out to eat. Easter day is when restaurants prepare to be filled to the maximum, especially around lunch time when religious people get back from church. Easter day is a big church day, as Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and then they go out to eat. However, even non-Christians and non-religious people go out to eat on Easter day. If you want to beat the crowds, pick a time that's a little earlier than church lets out, or choose a later hour, such as right between lunch and dinner. The crowds shouldn't be too bad and you'll be able to celebrate Easter day with your friends and family without having to stand in a long line just to get seated.

Plan A Picnic

Some people choose not to venture out to the restaurant at all on Easter day and opt, instead, to have a picnic. Depending on the weather, Easter day is usually a great day to have a picnic. You already have the Easter candy for dessert and a picnic is also a great location to have an Easter egg hunt. If the kids are there, have them hide their eyes while you hide the eggs you have already decorated. Then, let the kids loose. You can have a competition where the child who finds the most wins a prize. Or, you can get those plastic eggs that come apart where you can hide candy or money inside. That makes for a very special Easter, indeed, at least as far as the children are concerned.

You should keep in mind, though, that the adults should have a great time, too. Easter, after all, is all about family and that togetherness you share. So, this Easter, plan a get together with your loved ones. No matter what you do, celebrate everything you're thankful for. After all, it's Easter day.
