Enjoy the holiday with the family, but set aside some time for a special celebration all your own. Plan a romantic Easter with some special surprises for one the one you love.
Step 1: Write egg messages Dye eggs as a couple for sentimental fun. Write romantic love messages on the eggs with a white crayon that, once dyed, magically appear.
Step 2: Have picnic Find a secluded, shady area in the park for an old fashioned picnic lunch. Pack a basket with some Easter ham, fresh bread, and a bottle of wine. Take the time to relax.
Step 3: Make it personal Forgo the usual plastic grass for the Easter basket in favor of a riot of pastel-colored paper hearts and love notes. Add song lyrics, retold memories, mementos, or pithy quotes to make the holiday more personal.
Step 4: Surprise with flowers Surprise her with gorgeous, potted Easter lilies.
Step 5: Honor his team Spray paint his favorite team's colors or players' number on a basket, toolbox, bucket, or tackle box, and add team stickers. Fill it with candy and other team memorabilia. He'll love you for it.
FACT: The date of Easter was first established in 325 CE at the First Council of Nicaea, convened by Constantine. It was arranged to fall on the first Sunday following a first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after the day of the vernal equinox.
