Easter is just around the corner! It’s time to hunt for colorful Easter eggs again. The Easter bunny may be hopping around your backyard (or balcony) already.
There are tons of traditions related to Easter, both for children and adults. However, did you know that there also a lot of Easter-related activities that you can do in Liberty Village? Some of you may be looking forward to continuing old traditions, while others may be searching for ways to spice up this holiday. If you want to commemorate this special day, there’s certainly something in Liberty Village that’s perfect for you.
Here are the top five ways to celebrate Easter in Liberty Village:
1. Send Easter Lilies
The trumpet lily is also called “the Easter flower.” This is because it symbolizes beauty, hope, and life–the three qualities that Easter represents.
To Christians, the white colour of the trumpet lily is a symbol of Christ’s resurrection. The trumpet-like shape of the flower also symbolizes the trumpet that announces that Christ has risen from the dead.
Contemporarily, Easter celebrations aren’t complete without trumpet lilies. You can send Easter flowers to anyone in Liberty Village and remind them of beauty, hope, and the goodness of life.

2. Enjoy an Easter Cake
Easter has always been a time for celebration! It has even carried a mix of traditions and symbols from various cultures. Many aspects of Easter have also been linked to Ishtar, the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of fertility. This is why many symbols, such as eggs and bunnies, are related to birth and renewal.
We can also celebrate Easter for enduring long winter months. Spring is here, which means that flowers are beginning to blossom again. Animals are coming out of hibernation to play under the sun. The earth itself seems to spring back to life.
What better way to celebrate all this than with an Easter cake? SweetFlour bake shop has an 8-inch Easter cookie cake that both kids and adults will enjoy. If you want a cake that is 100% vegan and gluten-free, then Bunner’s Easter cake is your top choice.
Both shops deliver to Liberty Village, so make sure that you check out their websites and order while it’s early!

3. Paint Sugar Cookies
Kids love Easter because many activities are organized just for them. If your kids are beginning to get tired of the usual egg-hunts, have them try sugar-cookie painting. It’s a fun activity that will allow them to unleash their creative sides. They’ll also get to eat their own delicious masterpieces.
