Let's face it, Easter really doesn't have the overwhelming and all-encompassing feel that's characteristic of Christmas. Spring’s biggest holiday doesn't take over TV channels with movie marathons or radio stations with seasonal tunes, or have Santa sightings and tree lightings. There are, however, Easter poems, stories, and images that you can share with family and friends to celebrate the season.
While the Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts are a few of the more commercial aspects of Easter, it tends to be a more inherently religious holiday celebration than some of the others. After partaking in brunch or dinner, you may want to read a few Easter poems. In the Christian tradition, the story of the days leading up to Easter Sunday isn't necessarily as child-friendly as that of Christmas, and there aren't many movies that work well for family viewing. Poems can articulate the themes and capture the importance of the holiday in the same way that a movie such as The Passion of the Christ can, but are a good compromise if you're looking to avoid such vivid imagery. While not all deeply religious, one of these Easter poems may be just what you're looking for to cap off your springtime celebration.
Whether you celebrate the day attending church services or sipping on mimosas at brunch, an Easter poem is a good way to add a little something extra to the day.
