When Is Easter 2016?
As the snow begins to melt away, and with it all of the winter holidays, we turn to bask in the glory of warmer weather. For a period of time, we are enthralled with just living in the moment...so much so that spring holidays like Easter tend to sneak up on us unexpectedly, especially since it changes each year. But don’t fret too much about falling down the Easter bunny hole, we have everything here to help you get ready for this joyous holiday.
First thing’s first, this year Easter falls on March 27. The reason why it changes so frequently is because the forefathers of Christanity wanted it to be in line the Jewish holiday, Passover. Since Passover is celebrated according to lunar cycles, it changes each year. To help you begin planning your celebration, we’ll show you everything from boiled egg ideas to what to do with the leftovers. We’ll wake you up with delicious Easter brunch menus and inspire you with easy and tasty Easter dinner ideas. And don’t worry, we won’t forget to include Easter desserts to really wow your guests on Easter Sunday! Heck, we can even help you get your table decor down, help you plan a great Easter egg hunt and show you cool ways to decorate Easter eggs as well.
