Yes it’s different, but it’s Easter, so please share
Just because we should skip in-person church services and large family gatherings this year under social distancing guidelines doesn’t mean we aren’t celebrating Easter. There are numerous creative ways Christians will worship Sunday and families will still share a meal, even if their extended family only joins by Zoom or Facetime. Whether you put the kids in outfits you already purchased or wear last year’s clothes -- or just pulled up the photos you took of them dressed up last April -- let’s show our Easter finest in this gallery. Just to be safe, please share minimal identifying information -- just your smiles. Scroll down to begin.
