Here is a list of some meaningful Easter traditions that have brought families together for centuries!
#1 Easter Egg Painting
Painting easter eggs is a fun time-honored Easter tradition passed down to us from our predecessors. From kids to adults, everyone enjoys dipping eggs in brightly colored dye and decorating them in unique and creative ways. You can also use other fun and modern ways like watercolors, glitter, stickers, etc. to put a fun twist on this tradition. Painted Easter eggs can be used to decorate your home, venue, or even Easter baskets.
#2 Sending Easter Lilies
Easter Lilies are a symbol of purity and hope, and they’re extremely significant in many cultures around the world. The flowers are thought to have grown where Christ’s blood and tears dripped during his crucifixion, as well as in the Garden of Gethsemane following his betrayal. Sharing Easter lilies during this holiday is another symbolic tradition that is steeped in meaning.
#3 Easter Egg Hunt
Conducting an Easter egg hunt is another universal Easter tradition that still holds a significant part in Easter celebrations. This has reportedly been a classic Easter custom since the 16th century. The egg itself came to represent the Resurrection. Similar to Jesus rising from the dead, the egg represents emerging new life. Nowadays, Easter egg hunts are like fun scavenger hunts for kids, where they are encouraged to go out in the spring weather and make use of their physical and cognitive skills.
#4 Easter cakes & Hot Cross Buns
Baking an Easter cake is a tradition that is followed in almost all households. You can either have a carrot flavored cake to honor the Easter bunny or make a bunny shaped cake that’s decorated with frosting and candies. Put on an apron and get your little ones to help you bake cookies in the shapes of bunnies, chicken or eggs to commemorate the holiday. You can also go traditional and bake hot cross buns on Good Friday which is a classic Easter treat that has been made and enjoyed for decades.
#5 Easter Service
Easter wouldn’t be complete for many families if they didn’t attend a religious service at church. After all, it is the reason for the season. It is customary for some churches to perform an early daybreak service, while others have an Easter vigil on Saturday night. These masses symbolize Mary visiting Jesus’ empty tomb at dawn following his resurrection.
#6 Wear your best attire
Another long standing Easter tradition is to wear your best attire and look sharp on Easter Sunday, especially when going to church. It is also an early custom to wear an Easter bonnet and gloves for the service.
#7 Assemble around the table
Our ancestors knew the value of gathering around the table, whether they hosted a simple brunch party or a customary Easter feast. Many families still continue to host a large Easter brunch or dinner. Families get together and share food, jokes, and exciting stories. Inviting your extended families too helps different generations connect together and keeps your relationships strong and harmonious.
