What do you do during easter? Traditions and activities.

“During Easter I usually go back home to visit my family and spend some time with them. We would cook together, and my little sister would paint some Easter eggs! Generally, Easter for me is visiting my family and having relaxed time at home for a bit after the semester.” — Jakub, Physics

“I always set out time in the Easter break, particularly over the Easter weekend, to have a complete break from my studies and spend some time catching up with friends and family. It can be easy to isolate yourself at this time and see the Easter break as a time to catch up on as much work as possible, but it’s really important to take some time to switch off and enjoy yourself after a busy second semester and ahead of a demanding and stressful assessment period. I often go into the Easter break feeling quite exhausted but also overwhelmed about the amount of work I still have left to do, but I always find that I am in a much more positive mindset to take on the end of the year after I have taken this time to properly recharge and relax.” — Lily, History

“I usually set aside time to spend with family and friends. It’s more than okay to not have a set of traditions that you do, each year can be different! If you’re away from friends and family, you can still do things together. Just the other day I spent it watching a movie with friends on teleparty, or you can find another way to create your own traditions.” — Salma, Politics and International Relations

“It’s my birthday month so I love putting in additional events and time with friends and family to celebrate. Even if it is a walk locally with someone I have not seen for ages it is always nice to have a few activities in the diary. I also visit my parents for Easter weekend which is always a really nice escape and bit of time off for myself, even though we don’t really celebrate Easter”. — Rachel, Fashion

Tips for Easter activities with your family and friends.

Making sweets or cooking together with your friends and family is a great activity and also you will have a load of fun and food after as well! Perhaps showing your friends what is the tradition in your country during Easter or trying local traditions will let you explore more about the culture around you. And of course, the classic Easter egg hunt!” — Jakub, Physics

“If the weather stays nice over Easter, I will always go out for some nice walks and days out with my family. If you are staying in Manchester over the break there are so many nice places to walk that are not too far to travel to, such as parks in Greater Manchester like Heaton Park or Fletcher Moss Park as well as countryside that’s a little bit further away like the Peak District. There are also lots of places for a day out or overnight stay that are a short drive or train away from Manchester that are great to visit, such as York or Chester. But obviously there are also so many great things to do without having to leave Manchester that you might not have had chance to visit during term time, for example the many great museums and galleries (and some of them are free!)” — Lily, History

Here is the articles I’ve read on what to do in Manchester this spring, and how to make the most of the Easter holidays.
