Easter Mistakes to Avoid Next Year

Easter Mistakes to Avoid Next Year

April 17, 2017 by

Easter is over. You survived.

High five.

We know, we know—in some traditions Easter is just getting started. And the follow-up to Easter is just as important as the big Sunday itself.

But c’mon. Most of us have been planning for months, trying to make an execution palpable to non-Christians and preparing to not guilt trip the flood of Christmas-Easter Christians. There have been promo plans, stage design plans, how-do-I-use-Snapchat plans, and, of course, a change of plans. But you made it.

Take a moment to revel in that fact. Seriously, take some time for yourself. It’s important.

And in doing so, let’s think ahead to next year and some of the Easter mistakes you should definitely not repeat.

Top 10 Easter Mistakes to Avoid Next Year:

Don’t repeat these mistakes next year!

  1. Relying on spellcheck and being rewarded with a Monday Thursday service.
  2. Thinking out loud, in front of your pastor, about next-to-impossible stage designs.
  3. Easter hats as an untapped advertising opportunity.
  4. The emphasis on children, bunnies, and candy does not justify the use of Comic Sans.
  5. The chocolate crucifix.
  6. Rebranding Good Friday as OK Friday.
  7. Returning the egg drop helicopter before buzzing the Unitarians down the block.
  8. Giving up caffeine for Lent.
  9. Using that fake grass in the Easter baskets—that stuff gets everywhere.
  10. Your pastor’s tie-dyed Easter suit.
