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.
(*Note: We all know social anxiety can be hard to manage. This book on Amazon is the best I have found to deal directly with the problem.)
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 onto 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 invite Oprah. I think she would be an enjoyable dinner guest and spark some interesting conversation.

Q: If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
It’s been a year since we’ve been able to travel where I live (in Ontario, Canada). I guess you could say I used to take traveling for granted.
If we could go anywhere right now, I would probably go back to New York City. My daughter and I went there in February 2020 right before things shut down.
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?
A very simple wish: I’d love you to pin this post to Pinterest or share it with someone.
Q: What are you most thankful for this Easter?
I am most thankful for the little things I have in life. A job where I can work from home. A nice place to live., And my family.
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, wallet, and laptop.
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?
It’s been ages since I read a book because I do so much reading for work. I actually can’t remember. But I have a goal to read a book each month in 2021 starting in April.
Q: What is the name of the last movie you watched?
Serendipity with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. Slightly cheesy 90’s romantic comedy that I’ve seen a million times.
Q: What is your favorite Easter memory?
My favorite Easter memory would be when my parents would hide Easter eggs around the house for my brother and I.
Q: If you knew you could not fail, what would you do?
I’d love to start a magazine all about social anxiety.
Q: What is your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
The most stunning locale I have ever visited was a hotel called the Parador in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.
Q: How long did you believe in the Easter Bunny?
The Easter Bunny is real. He visits our family every year.
Q: What is something that really annoys you?
At this stage in my life, I get annoyed with the North American ideal of extraversion and uber confidence. I think there’s something to be said for quiet, introspective, empathic personalities.
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!
