Easter and families

By Charles Hopkins Published 03/13/2006 | Religion

Easter is a time that you and your family will spend quality time and make many memories together.  There are so many things that families like to do together to share in the love of the Easter holiday.  Many families like to celebrate the religious part of the holiday together.  This has great meaning to them and it is a time for them to worship in church or at home.  Other families like to spend Easter at home eating and spending time together. 

Most families will wake up on Easter Sunday and go to church.  After that they will return home for a quality Easter dinner.  They will have a great time cooking and preparing the food as well as eating the feast that they have created.  Families will spend the whole Easter day together and making great memories.

Families also like to take part in a great Easter egg hunt.  They will get together inside and out to hunt for the fabulous Easter eggs.  They will look high and low and the one that gets the most eggs will be the winner.  They may be entitled to prizes when they gather the most eggs.   It is a lot of fun for everyone of any age. 

 Usually the Easter holiday is a time off from work from Friday to Monday.  This is a time that families can enjoy each other for the whole weekend.  They can plan special vacations together. Many will plan a weekend filled with fun and adventure away from home and with their families.  There is not better time to get away then over the Easter holiday.  This will go to prove that you can have fun in or away from home on Easter. 

This is also a great time to take a walk or stroll with your families.  You can enjoy the scenery and the fresh air with your family.  Spending time together walking and talking is a great way to take advantage of your Easter holiday.  It is also a good way to exercise after the big holiday feast.

Playing cards together with your family after supper is a great way to enjoy the Easter day.  There are board games and other fun activities to take part in together.  You can have fun while visiting with your family and friends playing different games and competing against each other for some family competition. 

If you are not a family that likes to eat a big dinner together, you can spend time together for breakfast or lunch.  You can also take in a movie or go shopping on this day.  There are some stores and businesses open on this holiday and you may be able to take advantage of some great deals. 

Easter is the best time for families to catch up and check in with other family members that they may have not seen in a while. You can take the day to visit your loved ones and create fun and fond memories for the whole family.  This is a special time and one that should be shared with your family.
