Easter is celebrated in a wide variety of different ways throughout the world. In the United States, most people start decorating their homes three to four weeks before Easter. For some individuals, their Easter season starts with Lent, which begins on March 2, 2022. Easter falls on April 17, 2022. Let’s take a look at some ideas and tips for celebrating the perfect Easter in 2022.
Coloring Easter Eggs
Easter eggs are a popular Easter pastime. The first Easter egg decorating likely occurred in Persia and became part of the tradition of early Christians in Mesopotamia. The tradition of Easter eggs is synonymous with the new life of the spring season. If you want to have a fun activity for kids during the Easter weekend, it’s a good idea to start hard boiling and preparing the Easter eggs at least two days before you plan on dying them and having an Easter egg hunt.
