We at Harlem World Magazine wish each and every one of our readers from Harlem to Harare, we hope you have a wonderful Happy Easter.
We think you deserve it, as we survive and live through COVID, the tremendous experiences of Black Lives Matter (BLM), and more, we wish each and every one of you.
Here are easy ways to celebrate Easter:
1. Go to Church on Easter Sunday (if you go to church)
Besides Christmas, Easter is the other holiday where you’ll want to attend church even if you’re not an active churchgoer otherwise. It’s an important religious holiday and the services are usually beautiful and full of inspiration for life.
2. Host an Easter Dinner
Especially if you did not get to host the previous Christmas dinner, it’s your turn to shine now by hosting a feast for Easter! Southern Living has 27 traditional Easter dinner recipes that’ll impress guests. Just in case you’re interested in making your dinner feast a little more creative, check out the handful of worldwide Easter food traditions.
3. Make Easter Cards
Are you feeling crafty but not enough for going all the way of making a bonnet or a basket? Or perhaps you’ve made them already but inspiration for crafting keeps on overflowing? Easter cards can be a sweet activity for the whole family to participate in making, with which you can spread your spring and Easter joy to your loved ones living far away.
4. Decorate Easter Eggs
Painting and decorating the Easter eggs is one of those things to do on Easter that you’ll enjoy whether you’re an adult or a child. You can stick to beautifully painting the eggs with your favorite colors, or you may want to try to add some additional decoration on them.
Raise a cheer, hug the ones you love, and give thanks to those you give thanks.
