Conversation Starters You Can Use at Easter
Have you heard of Easter conversation starters? Are you worried about what you will talk about with friends and family at Easter this year? If you are separated from loved ones and connecting over the telephone or through a video chat, you might be especially worried that there will be lulls in the conversation.
That’s why I thought I’d put together a set of Easter Conversation Cards that you can use as a game to get people talking and have a bit of fun. These aren’t meant to be serious in any way, so if you’re looking for a serious Easter dinner they might not work.
I made a set of these for Thanksgiving dinner, and they actually turned out to be a lot of fun to use with the older generation in my family. So if you have parents or grandparents, they might find them fun.
I managed to fit 16 conversation cards on to two standard printer pages to help you save paper (and ink – I tried to keep the sheets fairly plain). So, if you’re connecting with loved ones over a distance, you could send them a copy of the cards and have them print them out at home too. The image below shows the first set of cards.
I’ve included all the questions that are listed on the cards below. For fun, I’ve given you my answers so you can learn more about me too. Feel free to share your own answers in the comments section.
Q: What famous person would you like to invite for dinner?
I would probably invite a comedian like Ellen. I think the thing we need most right now is more humor in our lives.
Q: If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Given that the world is not able to go anywhere right now (due to a worldwide health event, if you are reading this at a later date), I would probably not to choose to go anywhere. But if that situation were reversed, I would likely just choose to go to local places I can’t go anymore, like the thrift stores.
Q: What is your favorite Easter candy?
I’m not really a candy person, but I do like chocolate. I used to like the Cadbury Easter creme eggs, but they would probably be too sweet for me now. I’d probably just choose a nice cupcake with frosting.
Q: What is your favorite Easter tradition?
We always would have Easter dinner at my grandparents’ house who lived down the street from us, so that is the memory that I have. I can remember my grandmother wearing aprons and we’d always have a traditional meal.
Q: If you could be granted one wish, what would it be?
I would wish for a cure for cancer.
Q: What are you most thankful for this Easter?
This Easter I am most thankful for the little things I have in life, like a job where I can work from home, a nice place to live (and shelter in), and my children.
Q: If you could only take three items from your house, what would you choose?
If I had to leave my house in a hurry, I would probably take my phone (for communication), my laptop (for work and photos), and my purse. (I assume I’ve already got my kids and pets).
Q: If you could be anyone else for a day, who would you be?
Hmmm… if I could trade places with anyone else right now, I would choose to be a front line healthcare worker. Sounds crazy I know. But it feels awful not being able to help right now.
Q: What is the name of the last book you read?
I don’t sit down with books too often because my eyes are not good. And when I listen to audiobooks I tend to jump back and forth between a bunch. I’d really love to read a good novel. I guess I didn’t answer the question?
Q: What is the name of the last movie you watched?
It would have been one with my children, I don’t remember the name. Actually that’s not true, sometimes I watch cheesy romantic comedies while I do other things. The other day I watched the movie “He’s Just Not That Into You.” I find Janine’s character fascinating in that movie.
Q: What is your favorite Easter memory?
My favorite Easter memory would be hunting for Easter eggs or opening up my basket.
Q: If you knew you could not fail, what would you do?
I would probably invest more in this website to make it a success.
Q: What is your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
New York City is one of my favorite places to visit. It’s kind of like “my place” to me because I have been there alone.
Q: How long did you believe in the Easter Bunny?
What do you mean? Of course the Easter Bunny is real. He visits our family every year.
Q: What is something that really annoys you?
I get annoyed with social media posts that judge what other people are doing. I wish everyone would just focus on themselves and doing their part. Or offer advice in real life to people instead of on social media.
Q: Would you rather go back in time or go to the future?
I would probably choose to go into the future. Not to find out the winning lottery numbers, but just to see how much things would have changed.
Now it’s your turn. All you need to do is print out the cards and either hand them out to everyone at Easter or take turns pulling the cards from a stack. If you choose to use them over a video chat, you could all answer the same question at once.
Let me know how it goes!
