How to plan a romantic Easter
Enjoy the holiday with the family, but make sure to set aside some time for a special celebration all your own. Plan a romantic Easter with some wonderful surprises for the one you love. Here are some ideas.
Write egg messages: dye eggs as a couple for sentimental fun. Write romantic love messages on the eggs with a white crayon that, once dyed, magically appear.
Have picnic: find a secluded, shady area in the park for an old fashioned picnic lunch. Pack a basket with some Easter ham, fresh bread, and a bottle of wine. Take the time to relax.
Make it personal: forgo the usual plastic grass for the Easter basket in favor of a riot of pastel-colored paper hearts and love notes. Add song lyrics, retold memories, mementos, or pithy quotes to make the holiday more personal
Surprise with flowers: surprise her with gorgeous, potted Easter lilies.
Honor his team: spray paint his favorite team’s colors or players’ number on a basket, toolbox, bucket, or tackle box and add team stickers. Fill it with candy and other team memorabilia. He’ll love you for it.
The date of Easter was first established in 325 CE at the First Council of Nicaea, convened by Constantine. It was arranged to fall on the first Sunday following a first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after the day of the vernal equinox. That explains why it is different every year.
