This year’s Easter has to be the most awkwardly placed day of observance on the Christian calendar. What’s meant to be a period of prayer, commemoration and quality time spent with family has become another day in quarantine, doing nothing but eating excessively and binging on movies.
Easter at home: Things you can get up to
It may not bring the same satisfaction as being at a church service with fellow worshipers. However, there are greater issues faced by our civilisation than soaking in the atmosphere of mass gatherings.
If anything, being at home in honour of a human effort in the war against an unseen enemy is very much the spirit of Easter. More so than egg hunts, in my opinion.
Family movies you can watch this Easter
There are many ways you can commemorate the crucifixion of Christ at home. Many households will have the pickled fish and hot cross bun recipes at the ready.
Those of us who are hopeless in baking and worst of all, isolated from family, have the leisurely option of hosting all-weekend Easter movie marathons.
But, what can you watch? I wouldn’t advise anything R — or X — Rated since we are honouring Jesus Christ. To make this exercise easy for you, I’ve collected 10 family movies you can watch this Easter.
