Easter Etiquette

In featured, Image, Social Etiquette by system review

Easter etiquette is important to remember. It is a fun time and usually the weather is perfect. So enjoy yourself but here are a few pointers to remember:

1. Easter gifts: When visiting friends and family, always take a gift over the Easter weekend, but it doesn’t need to be a chocolate egg.  Flowers, a pot plant or something you have made are great.

2. Easter dining: When planning your Easter meals, always consider your guest’s dietary requirements.  If you are organising an Easter drinks party, make sure you have plenty of canapés and nibbles.

3. Easter Goodwill: Show goodwill to others. Organise an Easter egg hunt for the children or invite your family over.  

4. Easter Alcohol: As always make sure you drink responsibly. Don’t risk drinking too much as this can be an unpleasant experience for you and others around you.

5. Easter Dress code: When invited for a meal or just for Easter drinks, please check the dress code.  No matter how tempting it is to wear a bunny outfit, keep this fun for the children.

6. Easter manners: Show politeness to others and always say “please” and “thank you”. This is not just an Easter rule but something we should consider all year. A warm smile and a thank you goes a long way. Also, when visiting be helpful and do what you can to assist but do not be offended if they don’t want help. 

7. Easter Services: When spending time with other people this Easter, they may not be religious or have the same beliefs.  Therefore, respect this and don’t be offended if they don’t wish to attend the Sunday church service with you. 

8. Gifts/thank you notes: Don’t leave thank you letters for longer than two weeks. Write the letter with care and put emotion into it.  Don’t forget to start the letter with a thank you, then cover the highlights of your experience with the recipient and then you finish with the thank you!

9. Easter decorating the house: A lot of people these days enjoy decorating their homes for Easter, However, keep this simple and straight forward.

Remember your Easter etiquette and enjoy yourself.
