Easter is traditionally a religious holiday.
People often go to the cemetery in the morning and put flowers on the graves of family members, visit church for services or Mass and enjoy celebratory meals with family or at a special restaurant. But this year, for many Easter is best celebrated “at home” with the necessity to do kids and family activities around the house.
