Beyond preparing food and eating, I’ve looked into ways to celebrate Easter Day with the reality of the limitations that are now upon us for Easter 2020. The podcast offers over forty other things to do within this cloistered day in isolation.
Here Are the 40+ Ideas:

Easter Bush (inside or outside)
Build a catch and release rabbit trap
Make a Nature Table
Make Easter Cards, send to your family, elders or kids
Adult Easter Eggs with funny fortune slips
SOME SOCIAL IDEAS- Before, During or After Easter Day:
Catch up with a neighbor over the fence
Introduce yourself to your neighbor (over the fence)
Go for a bike ride
Look for 5 different kinds of birds
See how many animals you see in your yard in twenty minutes
Count the different types of flowers from your yard/window from 1 spot
Count the different trees in your view

EASTER DAY THINGS TO DO, in addition to the Easter meal:

Watch Church service on internet
Thank Jesus for coming into the world
Read from Easter Day Bible Texts Out loud
Easter Egg Hunt
Dress up for Dinner
Lit a candle/candles for your Easter meal
Crack Easter Eggs
Tell your remembrances during your family’s favorite Easter Day(s)
Look at Family Holiday snapshots
Look at old family Easter Day videos
Make and Write a journal about Easter 2020 for future generations to read
Breaking my rule on media- Watch one of the Classic Easter Movies-
The Ten Commandments or Greatest Story Ever Told,
Which when you think about it, is the greatest story ever told.
SUGGESTIONS thanks to- Niki K:
- Start with viewing a church service via the internet and maybe checking out services of other Christian services;
- Like A Sunrise Service…
- Like A Midnight Service…
A note from Niki about coloring Easter Eggs:
The eggs can be boiled and dyed with vegetable dyes (like boiled onion skins), if you don’t have the regular dyes.
Or even decorated with crayons by the kids and then let the kids hid them
4. Reading from the Bible about the events and explaining it to the family.
5. Watching a classic movie about Easter, for example “The Passion of the Christ” for the more mature group or “Ben Hur”, etc.
6. Younger kids may enjoy drawing pictures about things that they associate with Easter and explaining what it means to them.
7. Of course preparing and sharing a special Easter meal, even if it only PB@J.
SUGGESTIONS thanks to- Marina K:
Our family is Greek Orthodox, we gather around and light our vigil lamp
But most of all, It’s about God and we thank Him and Jesus for being here for us all.
SUGGESTIONS thanks to- Josée P:
Perhaps a picnic on Easter Day, everyone being 6 ft away from each other…
Or a webinar meeting, in the course of which each person expresses their gratitude, with specifics, or reads a poem or spiritual text.
Being well and alive right now is a blessing…

Constant Procession tells of key apparitions of the Virgin Mary since she passed on from the world and how she serves humanity through Christianity.
The origin of these podcasts began with my book Constant Procession.
(An e-book copy of the book can be found here on the website.)
Constant Procession; the podcast; is published here every Tuesday morning.
I’ve read the entire book from cover to cover (Installments 93-110)
