As Easter Sunday is approaching, students and their families are planning to get together and celebrate the holiday. This year is different from past years due to COVID-19, so many plans have become altered due to travel and group restrictions. Regardless, many families are finding ways to still see their families and participate in different holiday traditions.

Senior Karina Lesniwski said, “My family usually plans a trip out of the state for the week of Easter but since we do not want to travel far this year, we decided to drive to the Poconos for a few days. We are unable to go with my grandparents since they live in Virginia, but my parents are going to plan an egg hunt for my sister and me. It won’t be the same without my grandparents there, but we’re hoping to Facetime them when sorting through our baskets in the morning.”

Although not all families are able to go to in person church on Easter Sunday, there are options to still give service. Many larger events this year have transformed into online events, so churches now offer online services through Zoom and other video call apps.

Junior Abby Zeigler said, “My family does not go to church every weekend, but we make sure to go on religious holidays. Although we are not physically going to church this Sunday, my family will be sitting together in the living room as our pastor speaks over a Zoom call projected on our television.”

Senior Parris Burns said, “Since my grandmother is vaccinated, we are able to spend Easter with her. Since we were unable to be with her last year, this will be an extra special year. Our family isn’t doing anything crazy, but we will definitely spend the day together and have a family dinner to celebrate the holiday. We also have a tradition of painting eggs every year.”
