Obviously, thanks to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Easter Sunday in North Texas & Southern Oklahoma (all over the world, really) will be very different this year. According to a recent survey by WalletHub, here are five ways people plan to adapt their Easter celebrations:
1. 70% of people who observe Easter say ALL their Easter activities will happen at home this year. Only 25% said that was true last year in 2019.
2. Will you be doing anything to make Easter feel more “normal”? 39% said they plan to call loved ones, 27% will make video calls, 24% will livestream church services and 1 in 5 will have an indoor Easter egg hunt.
3. 56% of people who went to church last Easter said they WOULD go again this Sunday IF their church was open. But, only 23% overall think churches should be considered “essential businesses.”
4. Two-thirds said the Coronavirus outbreak will affect how much money they spend on Easter this year. The top things we’re saving money on are food, clothes, and candy.
5. The #1 thing the crisis has made us more grateful for is our FAMILY. 40% say loved ones are the top thing they’re more thankful for this year, 29% said their health, 13% said their freedom and 12% said their job.
