Easter is definitely underrated and it’s only up until recently that I actually appreciate and celebrate it as a holiday. Even if I’m not entirely sure what date it falls on each year, I still look forward to it and go in with no expectations – unlike New Year and Christmas which is planned at least 2 months in advance. So here are three reasons why Easter is so great and shouldn’t be reduced to “just another day”:
FOUR DAY WEEKEND
What’s there not to love about a four day weekend? It’s the best realisation on a Sunday evening that in the morning, you still don’t have to get up for work/school/university. That extra day makes all the difference; so relax, use the spare days to do the things you’ve wanted to do but haven’t got round to doing yet – a walk, run, see family, organise to meet up with friends, whatever it is Easter is the perfect chance to do it.
SPRING HAS ARRIVED
Easter is officially the first holiday of Spring! The brightly coloured daffodils, longer evenings, fresher mornings, the suns coming out and the BBQ is slowly re-emerging. So break out the dresses and shorts and get ready to enjoy some Spring weather! If that doesn’t give you enough reason to love Easter I don’t know what will.
Just like with Christmas, Easter is one of those holidays where you’re just expected to eat a lot of Chocolate. Mini Eggs, Cadbury Chocolate Eggs, Lindt Bunny’s and Creme Eggs; it can all be consumed for the whole weekend without fear of judgement. Also, as I’m writing this I’m currently eating a hot cross bun which is another luxury you get to enjoy over the Easter break.
So, Happy Easter! I hope you enjoy the sun, chocolate and four day weekend as much as I am.
