What to do for Easter
Whether you are religious or not celebrating Easter is a fun holiday for all. People celebrate it in many different ways. Some people spend their day at church. Some people just go to Easter egg hunts, either way there are many fun things to do.
Easter is a very good day for giving back to your community. It is a great idea to arrange a community dinner for those in need. You can ask local churches, businesses, or other organizations in your area to donate to your cause. Maybe ask people or places to donate food or gift cards to help with getting food for the dinner! You can put up a Facebook event and ask for donations and volunteers! Sometimes you can do free advertising for this type of thing in storefront windows or on the boards inside their stores. Giving an Easter dinner to those in need is a great way to give back to your community on Easter Sunday. Plus, if you get enough cash donations you could have Odd Moe’s Pizza cater your event!
Easter is extremely late this year, it falls on Sunday, April 21st. The Monday after that, April 22nd, is Earth day. Maybe you could spend your Easter weekend celebrating planet earth! You could do several things to celebrate such as picking up random trash or organizing a park clean up. One great idea would be to organize a tree planting or community garden planting! Spring and Easter is all about rebirth and renewal and helping the Earth get healthy and stay healthy is an amazing way to celebrate Easter weekend.
Many organizations and local churches arrange Easter egg hunts for children of all ages! This is generally a really fun way to Spend Easter weekend!
