What To Write In An Easter Card

Spring is here, and Easter is just around the corner. It’s a time to celebrate new life and a change of scenery as we step out of winter. The season surrounding Easter is one of joy and hope, so let’s share those sentiments with those around us! Wondering how to send a fun or thoughtful message to your friends and family? Check out this simple guide for what to write in an Easter card.

What Is Easter?

Traditionally celebrated as a Christian holiday, Easter is a time to focus on new life, growth, and hope. Christians specifically celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They spend the days and months leading up to Easter in reflection, fasting, and preparation (Lent) for Resurrection Sunday. Different celebration traditions include Easter Egg hunts for kids, sunrise services, and baptisms. 

Simultaneously, the general public often spends Easter with family over a big meal. Schools take time off and often observe an Easter break, so families naturally gather during this time. We celebrate with cute images of baby animals and flowers, all fitting with the themes of growth and new life. Whether you celebrate the religious side of this holiday or you just enjoy the candy eggs, Easter is a great time to be with people you care about and enjoy the warmer, brighter season. 

Happy Easter Messages For Friends

Though Easter is a special holiday for many, sometimes it’s still difficult to travel and gather with family. For many of us, our friends are the people we see on most holidays. Easter is always on a Sunday, so sometimes it’s just nice to invite a few friends over, eat good food, and enjoy the warmer weather. This year, take some time to thoughtfully write a few Easter greeting card messages to your friends!

  • “I know you’re far from family today, but I’m so thankful to welcome in a new season with you!”
  • “Cheers to warmer days and more sunshine! Glad to be spending this day and so many others with you!”
  • “Happy Easter, friend! We made it through a long, hard season and we are stronger for it! Thanks for sticking with me through it!”
  • “First comes spring, then before you know it, we’ll be at the beach every weekend! Yay!”
  • “We’ve both walked through some really hard days this winter, and I am so glad to celebrate Easter with you today. Good is coming, and we have so much to look forward to!”
  • “Happy Easter, friend! May you know the hope and joy of our God on this Resurrection Sunday!”

Happy Easter Messages For Family

As we gather with our families this Easter, we may find that it’s been a while since we were all together. Take time to cheer on your family members and celebrate the incoming season. Let them know how much you value being with them on this day. And if you’re at a distance, remind your family of Easter memories or traditions. Let this holiday be a time to reflect on the good you’ve been given and look forward with hope to what’s to come. 

  • “Happy Easter, Dad and Mom. I’m so thankful to be with everyone around the table today. Thanks for always making holidays feel special.”
  • “Grandma, it feels so special to celebrate with you today, especially after saying goodbye to Grandpa this year. I hope you feel so much hope and joy as you gather with the family on this Easter Sunday. We love you!”
  • “It’s been a tough year, but it’s so good to be together! Here’s to new beginnings and a hopeful season ahead. Happy Easter!”
  • “Sis, I’m thinking of you on this Easter Sunday. As a new mom, I’m sure the celebration of life takes on a whole new meaning. Missing you all, but thankful for this new season you get to step into!”
  • “Dad, I’m missing you a lot this Easter! Remember when you let us dye the eggs, but you forgot to hardboil them first? That was one of my favorite Easters! Love you and miss you today!”
  • “Happy Easter, Grandma and Grandpa! We’re eating ham and cheesy potatoes today, just like we did at your house every Easter. Missing you and wishing you were here!”
  • “Happy Resurrection Day, Son! We miss you and the whole family, but we’re so thankful for the hope we have in Jesus! Enjoy this day and know we love you lots!”
