How To Celebrate Spring Holidays While In Quarantine

Because holidays don't have to suck just because they're during a worldwide pandemic.

How To Celebrate Spring Holidays While In Quarantine

When I opened Instagram the other day, my explore page was full of the usual Easter/spring themed DIYs that roll around during this time of year. As I was scrolling though the comments, I noticed a bunch of people saying that "Easter is cancelled" or "what's the point when corona's around."

Although our holiday celebrations will not be the same, I think we can still have fun and use these holidays as an excuse to forget about everything that's going on right now, or be grateful for those of us that still have the capacity to celebrate them from home.

1. Decorate your house


Pull out the box in your garage and set up some eggs and stuffed bunnies. You can even just get some flowers from the grocery store or cut some from your garden. Anything decorations that can make your atmosphere happier and more lively will work.

2. Find a cute holiday outfit

One of my favorite things about Easter and spring holidays is getting dressed up. Even though you can't go anywhere, it's still fun to put on a floral dress to get in the festive spirit.

3. Attend a virtual religious service

If you usually attend a service as a way of celebrating your holiday, check your local church, temple, or mosque website to find out when they are streaming their virtual services. Even some cable stations are live streaming the ceremonies.

4. Make some crafts


Dye some eggs, color in a bunny, make a Matzah cover, or cut out a Ramadan lantern. It may be a little childish, but it's also nostalgic and wholesome fun.

5. Cook a festive meal


Food is great. You deserve a feast just as you would usually. Spend some time to put together the meal you would make if your were throwing a party. Just maybe with fewer portions.

6. Make spring baskets


Fill up a basket full of festive candy and give it to your quarantine buddies (or just to yourself). I'm pretty sure the Easter Bunny doesn't have Covid-19.

7. Call loved ones


Make sure to keep in touch with the people you'd normally see on these occasions. Social distancing is hard for everyone, especially your grandparents and other family members. Zoom, call, or even text them. Just because you aren't together physically, doesn't mean you can't be together virtually.

I know celebrating these holidays won't be the same this year as it was before, but hopefully it won't stop your traditions. Use this time as a way to forget about the craziness that's happening around the world and have a little fun.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
