In the wake of COVID-19, in-person gatherings have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on Easter celebrations. Across Collin County, churches and organizations are offering virtual Easter egg hunts, online services, Passover events, and more! Check them out below, and have a happy Easter/Passover weekend.
Virtual Easter Egg hunts are all the rage this spring. You can still practice social distancing by organizing one in your own house and yard.
