Washington D.C. Easter Celebration
Easter is a time to celebrate new beginnings and the arrival of spring, and the Washington D.C. Easter Celebration is an excellent time to visit the nation’s capitol and take part in all kinds of fun and family-friendly events. Easter arrives early in 2013, taking place on March 31, so get a jump on your reservations and plan for an Easter like no other when you stay at American Inn in Bethesda. Perhaps the most famous holiday event is the White House Easter Egg Roll, which takes place on the lawn of the White House. Children hunt for eggs and visit the Easter Bunny under the shadow of the nation’s most prominent residence. This year’s White House Easter Egg Roll takes place on Monday, April 1 from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. There are other Easter egg hunts around the D.C. area, including at the African American Family Celebration at the National Zoo. Taking place on April 1 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM, this family event features not only an egg hunt but also live entertainment, crafts, a food bazaar and all kinds of animal fun. Another popular holiday option is to indulge in a delicious Easter brunch. Many of the city’s best eating establishments host a holiday brunch and you will find special Easter deals at wine bars, cafes and restaurants all across town.
For many people, the Easter holiday is not about rabbits, egg hunting or brunch. Rather it is a religious celebration commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At churches across Washington D.C. special Easter Sunday services are held, and all have open doors to both Christians and non-believers who would like to experience a holiday worship service. While the city has numerous churches, some of the larger congregations in downtown D.C. include the Washington National Cathedral, Basilica of the National Shrine, St. Matthews Cathedral, St. John’s Church, Church of the Epiphany and Georgetown Presbyterian Church.
