4 Packing Tips for a Truly Happy Easter

4 Packing Tips for a Truly Happy Easter Easter is a popular time to travel, often coinciding with school spring breaks and much needed time away from the office. And as many people will be traveling for the spring holiday, packing for Easter is sometimes akin to walking on eggshells. One false step and you might be hopping to a mall in a mad dash. To eliminate any Easter packing problems, here are four main tips to keep in mind while traveling for this spring holiday.

Monitor The Weather and Pack in Layers: Growing up in Colorado, Easter could mean sunshine and sundresses or snow and snow boots. As a result, I learned to never underestimate the weather around Easter. April is one of the most unpredictable months for weather across the country. Early spring is notorious for being hot and cold without too much of a warning. If you are starting the packing process for your Easter travels, you must first check the weather and monitor it closely leading up to your departure. This will help you pack according to the unpredictable season. Even if everything looks like sunshine and rainbows in your destination’s forecast, you have to pack in layers. Your Sunday’s best should work well with a jacket or sweater just in case the weather turns south.

Consider Fabric Choice Before Selecting an Easter Outfit: Most travelers on the move for Easter will need something dressy to wear to those Easter brunches, services and gatherings. Dressier clothing isn’t always the easiest to pack. When you are on the go with little time or resources like an iron, you have to select outfits that are composed of fabrics that require little effort. For example, jersey and knit dresses might be better than silks and satins. You want to pack fabrics that don’t wrinkle when rolled up into a suitcase.

Pack Slip-On and Foldable Shoes For Space Saving: As Easter travel often calls for dressier ensembles, you will lose space in your bag if you pack your standard dress shoes. If you want to avoid baggage fees or you merely need more space, you can save room by packing slip-on and foldable shoes. For men, a slip on loafer that can be worn on the plane will save a great deal of space in your bag and can still function for dressy looks. For woman, a foldable flat will free up more space than a high heel would while at the same time lending a shoe that works in this transitional time of the year.

Stow Easter Candy in Your Carry-On:
If you are traveling with the whole family for Easter, you might have a few chocolate bunnies and eggs on your packing list. While you might want these items stowed out of your way in checked baggage, you could have a mess on your hands when you open your bag. You never know if your bag will be sitting on the tarmac for hours in the hot sun. All edibles, especially of the chocolate variety, should be stowed in your carry-on so that you can rest easy knowing candy is not melting in your bag.

  • For Venetians, the 21st of November is an important date. It’s the day the city celebrates the Madonna della Salute festival, which commemorates the founding in 1630 of the church of Santa Maria della Salute (“Madonna of Health”). The church is more commonly known as Salute, as is the festival as well. During the festival, the area around the church is beautifully lit by thousands of candles brought by the many people going to pray to the Virgin Mary with vendors lined up along the way to the church selling candles and a variety of sweets....read more

  • The French phrase, “Bon appétit,” is often used as a substitute for the lack of an English phrase of the same meaning. While you might hear, “Enjoy your meal,” Bon appétit is one of the most common ways of greeting someone before they chow down. As most of the country gets ready to have a Thanksgiving feast, in case you have a few at your table who don’t speak English or French for that matter, it is useful to know how to wish someone a good meal in some of France’s neighbors. Here’s how to say essentially, “Good appetite,” in 15 European languages....read more
