Easter, another busy Holiday season where there is lots of candy to buy, eggs to decorate and lavish meals to prepare. Even though Easter might look a little different this year, with social distancing practices still in place and the coronavirus vaccine distribution in progress, there is no need to forgo all traditional activities. In fact, Team MyMalls has put together a list of ideas for you and your loved ones to still celebrate at home in a safe environment.
For those who don’t know, and in a nutshell, Easter takes place on the Sunday after Holy Friday, the day Jesus Christ was crucified. It is the day when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ; marking the completion of Lent, which is officially a 40-day period of prayer, penance and fasting. Easter traditions vary from country to country, but Team MyMalls has compiled a few traditions that are celebrated worldwide.
It’s Easter and Springtime, so, why not bring some of the seasonal spirit inside? We’re all spending enough days indoors as it is, so you might as well. Team MyMalls has included a few affordable ways to decorate your home this Easter down below.
Perhaps the most fun part of the holiday, as you try to come up with great ideas to fill up each and every basket you have to assemble. It’s a great opportunity to let your kids unleash their creativity also. What’s more satisfying than spending time with your kids and seeing their happy faces!
People all around the world color and decorate hard-boiled eggs as part of the Easter celebrations. The egg represents new life; which coincides with Springtime.
The decorated eggs (or chocolate eggs) are usually hidden throughout people’s homes, gardens or at school by the “Easter Bunny”; children will then go on a hunt to find the eggs. However, it is impossible to do this on a large scale, so keep it small. Parents, join your kids this year and make sure to use every nook and cranny in your home or yard and let the kiddos loose!
Chocolate is the traditional candy of Easter and the chocolate bunny is the ultimate symbol. Other Easter candy goodies include marshmallow chicks, jelly beans, and chocolate eggs. We’ve included a wonderful chocolate assortment below of 285 pieces; perfect for baskets and as an egg filler.
Coming together and spending time with family and friends is the cornerstone of Easter celebrations. In some traditions, a lamb roast or ham is part of the menu. As for the Caribbean, families love coming together for brunch. There are many restaurants that offer delivery on the holidays. So, why not order in? It’s hassle-free but you’re helping other businesses as well.
It’s basically taking Sunday Best to a whole new level. In many traditions, men and women will dress up in their finest attire for Easter church services or other activities. This tradition goes back centuries. To this day, women will wear gloves and big hats called Easter bonnets. Being indoors is no excuse to not look good. In fact, if you order something right now, MyMalls will make sure it reaches your doorstep on time!
