Sadly, Easter bunnies and egg hunts don’t come into play here.
If we were to ask now which specific ways you celebrate Easter in your home, you’ll probably realize that there isn’t a definite answer (and no, Cooking Jollof Rice and Chicken doesn’t count). Unlike Christmas which has the usual trappings of decorations and gifts, the traditional Easter icons of egg hunts and bunnies are not widely embraced or portrayed in Nigerian society.
Nonetheless, here are five fun ways Easter is commonly celebrated in Nigeria:
Attend an Easter event
This weekend is a great time to create fond memories with the family. There are a lot of events taking place that will give you ample opportunities to have fun with your loved ones.
Stay at home
Easter is often celebrated in Nigerian society by having fun relaxing day with family and friends. You could cook together, play games, sing hymns and generally have a memorable time.
See a movie
It’s always great to have an opportunity to see that fun movie you’ve been looking forward to. Check your local cinema guide and take advantage of the long weekend to see new movies.
Visit the beach
While it’s sure to be crowded during the holidays that will hardly take away from its charm. Lagos has a lot of beautiful picturesque beaches to choose from for your leisure this week.
Volunteer for a charitable cause
Easter is a great time to show love to the less privileged and help care for the needy. You can reach out to those in need by volunteering with charitable organizations and outreaches.
