10 Tips for Hosting an Amazing Easter Gathering

Each year here in the United States, the celebrations of the Easter Holiday tend to take on two distinctly different meanings. Traditionally, the celebration of Easter is about the resurrection of Christ. However, celebrating Easter as a secular holiday is all about the Easter Bunny and eggs. Whether you are a religious family who celebrates Christ’s resurrection, or you choose to have the day be about Easter egg and basket hunts, here are ten tips for making your Easter gathering a success:

Tip #1 – As with planning for any party, you want to plan your Easter Sunday gathering as far in advance as possible. People often tend to make plans for holiday celebrations many months in advance, and the last thing you want to happen is to plan a party and then find out that all of your potential guests are unavailable.

Tip #2 – It is important to plan your menu for Easter early as well. You will find many special deals on foods such as ham and roasts near the Easter holiday. By planning ahead, you will know which deals to be on the lookout for. To save yourself time and a lot of aggravation make sure to write down a list of things you will need.

Tip #3 – Make sure that when you are planning your Easter gathering, or any other party for that matter, that you give yourself enough time to plan and shop. You will not want to be in a grocery store the week before Easter because the entire rest of your town will all be there. If you have some lead-time, then you can avoid the last-minute crowds. Also, you do not want to plan your menu and then find that the store is out of a key ingredient which you need.

Tip #4 – If you want to use dyed eggs as decoration, make sure you dye your eggs a couple days before your event. If you don’t, then you might be hosting your party with weird colored fingers.

Tip #5 – If you will be having an Easter Egg hunt for the children in attendance, you might want to consider purchasing some plastic eggs which you can add small toys and candy inside of. This makes you less likely to loose an egg which will smell if you don’t find it in time.

Tip #6 – If you will be cooking a large meal, try cooking everything you can the day before. At the least prepare anything the day before which you can. This will save both your time and your energy on the holiday.

Tip #7 – When you home is packed full of your friends and family; accept their help when they offer it. Remember, the party is for you too and by allowing people to help you, you can enjoy your own party as well.

Tip #8 – If there will be a lot of children at your Easter party, have some fun activities which they can work on to keep them busy and out of trouble. You can always offer a prize for the best craft project, or whatever, to give them a sense of competition and to help them spend more time working on their projects.

Tip # 9 – If you will be making Easter baskets, the best place you can find the baskets are at your local dollar store or thrift stores. Both of these offer you a great basket selection at a very low price. You can give the baskets to the kids, or you can have the kids build the baskets and then deliver them to a local charity or homeless shelter.

Tip #10 – Don’t forget the less fortunate at Easter time. If you have excess food in your pantry, take some of it to your local food pantry so that those who are hungry in your community can enjoy a good meal for the holiday.

Travel Quotes:

Traveling, you realize that differences are lost: each city takes to resembling all cities, places exchange their form, order, distances, a shapeless dust cloud invades the continents. Italo Calvino

To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries. Aldous Huxley

The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg. The word originally referred only to special religious days. In modern use, it means any special day of rest or relaxation, as opposed to normal days away from work or school.

Many holidays are linked to faiths and religions (see etymology above). Christian holidays are defined as part of the liturgical year, the chief ones being Easter and Christmas. The Orthodox Christian and Western-Roman Catholic patronal feast day or 'name day' are celebrated in each place's patron saint's day, according to the Calendar of saints. Jehovah's Witnesses annually observe "The Passover". In Islam, the largest holidays are Eid ul-Fitr (immediately after Ramadan) and Eid al-Adha (at the end of the Hajj). Hindus, Jains and Sikhs observe several holidays, one of the largest being Diwali (Festival of Light). Japanese holidays contain references to several different faiths and beliefs. Celtic, Norse, and Neopagan holidays follow the order of the Wheel of the Year. Some are closely linked to Swedish festivities. The Bahá'í Faith observes holidays as defined by the Bahá'í calendar. Jews have two holiday seasons: the Spring Feasts of Pesach (Passover) and Shavuot (Weeks, called Pentecost in Greek); and the Fall Feasts of Rosh Hashanah (Head of the Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Tabernacles), and Shemini Atzeret (Eighth Day of Assembly).
